Hebrews 6:13-20

Hebrews 6:13-20
Contemporary English Version (CEV)

  There are so many great reminders in here.
  First of all, there is no one or no thing greater than God.  What we often do is put things in God's place, and while we don't intentionally think of it this way, when we try and find peace or security or meaning by another path, we are giving these things (such as money or success or renown) more power than God.  God was, is and always will be, and only he can rule over the universe and meet our heart's deepest desires.
  Secondly, God's promises will never be broken.  All the promises that Christ has made about enduring and overcoming -- those will all be fulfilled.  No matter how dark and bleak things may seem, the light of Christ will always shine, and it will overcome in the end.  We are charged with enduring to the end to see the final result.  So our hope in Christ's promises should be an anchor for us, a security in the midst of blowing storms and crashing waves.  We cling to our hope in Christ,
  Finally, Jesus has gone ahead of us.  We don't follow a Savior who doesn't know what it's like to be in our place -- we follow a Savior who has walked the road, who has endured the trials and suffering, all so that we may join him in glory!
