…A Woman Who Fears the Lord is to be Praised

My husband gifted me with a guest post for Mother’s Day. He has been an incredible encouragement in my spiritual life. I hope you will be challenged to dig deeper with this piece. By Jake Vough Happy Mother’s Day to all those out there who nurture and protect life. I thought, given the day, I…

Holy, not Happy

When I was in my early 20s, I lived under the understanding God wanted me happy. I believed He would bless whatever I found to make my heart sing and smooth every path in front of me which would lead to a euphoric experience. I was wrong…very, very wrong. This message was toxic to my…

That’s a Wrap!

In this last week of Hebrews I hope you can look back and see how you have developed in your Bible Study Habits.  While I’m sure you honed new skills, it is my desire that you have taken noticed your weaknesses as well. Mine is that I have not placed a back up plan around…

In the Middle…

So, here we are, the Middle. This week is the halfway point and often the spot where quitting happens. Take a pulse, how are you doing? I know it seems silky to think about it, but I want you to see it through. You are close and only a few more weeks separates you from…

Make Connection

Now that we are in Chapter 4, have you noticed any patterns? Are there themes, wording, or ideas that you are now tying together? I hope you are! The author is very intentional about repetition and creating a flow from one chapter to another. An example of this is found as we glance back at…

Chapter 4 and Chapter 5:1-10 this week! Have you noticed any change since you began your study of Hebrews?  Are your habits different?  Does scripture take on a new meaning? I hope you are finding there is a transformation occurring as you take each week to shape your skills at listening to God through his…

The Details

How are you moving along? I know if you are new to studying the Bible or the method I’m using is different from your normal way, you may feel a bit off. That’s ok! Anything new takes time, just keep going. The details were one of the hardest aspects for me when I began retraining…

Stay Strong!

You’ve done the reading, so now it is time to go back through the questions for processing! What does it say? What does it mean? Also, Part 2 How should it change me? If you need, go back and reread the original posts for help with each question. Need some help with cross references for…

Start Strong! (Week 2, Chapter 2 and 3)

Starting Week 2 with encouragement and some parting thoughts on Chapter 1. Today: Pray and read Hebrews 2, multiple times if possible ( no notes, commentary, or cross references yet!)

What Does it Mean? (Part 2)

Today’s reminder: Don’t forget to pray before you engage in study!!! Yesterday I left you with some cross references to widen your understanding of Hebrews 1. Today, you can begin delving into the commentary/study notes in your Bible, podcasts, sermons, and books which speak to the content. I would caution you, please make sure what…

What Does it Mean?

This is where we begin searching outside of Chapter 1 for more information. Where do we start? Right in our Bible is an excellent first stop. Many Bibles have cross references to other places in scripture which reference the same topic or passage. We will see this often in Hebrews as so much of the…
