What’s your favorite book of the Bible? Mine is Hebrews. I’m excited about Michele’s interactive study posts on this book. The verse I consider my “life verse” is there:
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1
Hebrews has many other verses I find inspiring and edifying:
“The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming–not the realities themselves.” Hebrews 10:1
“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews:11:1
“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good works. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are doing, but let us encourage each other–and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:24-25
“No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11
These are just some of the verses I love. I also like the fact that we don’t know who wrote Hebrews. Just think about it–an anonymous writer, but his words were chosen and still being used by God 2000 years later.
This book teaches me. It lifts me up every time I read through it. If I could choose one book of the Bible to take with me to a desert island, this would be it. What about you? What’s your favorite? I hope some of our other bloggers and followers will do posts and send comments. I also hope you will comment on Michele’s posts on Hebrews.
