lots of stuff

Hebrews 13 is a chapter chock full of all kinds of stuff.

It's the last chapter in the letter,

so I figure whoever wrote it was both trying to get as much truth in as possible

as well as not mincing words.

So here's some verses from this chapter that stand out to me.

The second half of verse 5 is my life verse.

Take each verse or partial verse & just think about what it says.

Hebrews 13

1 Keep on loving each other as brothers and sisters.

2 Don't forget to show hospitality to strangers,

for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!

3 Remember those in prison, as if you were there yourself.

Remember also those being mistreated, as if you felt their pain in your own bodies.

  4 Give honor to marriage,

and remain faithful to one another in marriage.

God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery.

  5 Don't love money;

be satisfied with what you have.

For God has said,

"I will never fail you. I will never abandon you."*

6 So we can say with confidence,

"The LORD is my helper, so I will have no fear.

  What can mere people do to me?"

  8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

9 So do not be attracted by strange, new ideas.

Your strength comes from God's grace...

14 For this world is not our permanent home;

we are looking forward to a home yet to come.

15 Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name.

16 And don't forget to do good and to share with those in need.

These are the sacrifices that please God.
