Some Musings on Hebrews 13 (Part 5)

As I have often mentioned in this blog, my friend Frank and I have an agreement. We read the same chapter in God’s Word each day for a week and then drop each other a short email about what we have learned. We then move to the next chapter the next week. I describe our modest online Bible study here. You might want to try this with a friend or relative.

We are finishing up our reading of the book of Hebrews. And there is much in this final chapter that I just have to go over with you. Let’s look at the next verse:

These two verses are both amazing and practical. They are practical in that the author gives three very specific commands: (1) Remember your leaders! and (2) Consider the outcome of their way of life! and (3) Imitate their faith!

These verses are also amazing. We have the incredible statement: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” How does that powerful, theological, absolutist declaration about our Savior fit here? Any thoughts?

We often look at sameness as unsatisfactory, status quo, in need of major or minor change. But what if we are talking about absolute perfection? Then no change is needed. Ever.

Today’s Challenge: How we treat our leaders reflects how much we value the never-changing Lord Jesus and His provision of those leaders. Remember, consider, and imitate those God-given leaders today.
