Today in God’s Word
Numbers 8; Psalm 44; Song of Solomon 6; Hebrews 6
On account of the oath of God, we have a great assurance and hope because of two things, says the writer of Hebrews.
- The unbreakable and unchangeable promise of a God who cannot lie.
- The unending priesthood and advocacy of our big brother, the God-man Jesus, who is our forerunner.
“17 So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, 18 so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. 19 We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, 20 where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” (Hebrews 6:17–20, ESV)
Let our souls be sure and steadfast, anchored in a hope that rests upon the one who has entered behind the curtain once for all!
Soli Deo Gloria!
