Devotional Thoughts from Hebrews 13:20-25.
Republished from marmsky.wordpress.com with permission
In his benediction, the author of Hebrews asks his readers to bear with his word of exhortation. He hopes to be able to visit those to whom he has written, but if not, trusts that God would use those words to equip the believers to please him and to do his will.
- The God of peace has brought peace to all of us by the blood of Christ. The blood of the eternal covenant is sufficient to remove the enmity that had separated us from the Father.
- The shed blood of Christ on the cross was sufficient to accomplish God’s purpose in atonement. Because of this, the tomb could no longer hold him. He was brought again from the dead.
- Since Christ has done all these things, he is certainly capable of shepherding God’s sheep, equipping them to accomplish his Father’s will and bring him joy.
LORD, we praise you for Jesus and only Jesus. He alone will fulfill your eternal plan, mediate your eternal covenant, and bring you eternal glory.
