The Things that Cannot Be Shaken

I spent some time in Hebrews 12-13 this morning.  So much good stuff in there, but what particularly grabbed me was Hebrews 12:18-28.   In the Old Testament, God spoke to Israel at Mt.

Going Outside the Camp

This morning I was in Exodus 29 – God specifying how his priests were to be consecrated/set apart/purified.  It’s amazing the theme of blood cleansing from sin – to see that throughout the Old and New Testaments – but that’s not really what jumped out.

Not the vegetable, but the command…”Let us…” I know, that was cheesy, but you are reading…and possibly hungry. In Hebrews 10:19-25 we are given some very specific ‘let us’ commands:  19(A) Therefore, brothers,[a] since we have confidence to enter(B) the holy places by the blood of Jesus, 20by(C) the new and living way that he opened […]

How Not to Drift Away

I’m up to the book of Hebrews in my 2009 Bible reading.  They are really pouring it on how…I had to read Chapters 1-6 this morning, and for once I had the good sense to make sure I got up early enough to get thru it.  I’ve also noticed that as I get into the […]
