Hebrews 13 Bible Study
In Hebrews 13:1-3, the most important commandment of God is to love others as much as you love yourself. Christians should always treat each other like brothers and sisters. We must always be kind and generous to one other so that we can display the testimony of Jesus in our lives.
In Hebrews 13:4, we must be faithful to our marriage partners. Sex outside of marriage including adultery and sexual immorality are sins against God.
In Hebrews 13:5-6, we must always be contented with what we have and not covet what others have. We must always trust in God’s promise that God will never abandon us but he is our provider and he will always provide everything we need at the right time.
In Hebrews 13:7, we must always respect the church leaders and learn from their role models. Good leaders will act out the word of God in their conducts.
In Hebrews 13:8-9, Jesus Christ is always the same yesterday, today and forever. We can learn more about God from the bible. God never change his word so we should not expect to obey God in ways other than what is written in the bible.
In Hebrews 13:10-14, in the old covenant, the blood of animals were brought into the Holy Place and the bodies of the animals were burned outside the camp. Likewise, Jesus Christ died outside the city to make atonement for our sins with his blood. Because Jesus bore our disgrace, we must also bear his reproach and get rid of all sins to live a holy life for God.
In Hebrews 13:15-16, we must always praise and thank God in all circumstances. We must always do good and be kind to others because loving others as much as you love yourself is the sum of all the God’s commandments.
In Hebrews 13:17, we must respect and obey the leaders in the church. They are accountable to God for your souls so you must not make their job harder and discourage them.
In Hebrews 13:18-19, Paul requested the Hebrews to pray for him and his missionary partners. We should always take into consideration about other people’s needs and pray for them.
In Hebrews 13:20-21, God gives us peace in our hearts when we do his will. He will provide everything we need and clothe us with the power of Jesus Christ if we obey him and do his will.
In Hebrews 13:22-25, Paul send his greetings to the Hebrews Christians. Paul told the Hebrews that Timothy had been released from the jail and he hope to bring Timothy along if he arrives here soon.
