In chapter twelve of the book of Hebrews in the Bible, the writer addresses our need to pursue peace with all people and to walk in holiness before the Lord.
One of the shortest books in the New Testament of the Bible representing the message of the Gospel of Christ is the Book of Philemon. It contains a letter in the most personal of terms from the Apostle Paul, to a brother in Christ named Philemon…
When the Old Testament prophets foretold of the coming Messiah, many of the Jews had a pre-conceived idea of how He would appear — so that when Christ came, though He fulfilled every word that the Old Testament prophets said, they did not recognize it was Him. But to those who did receive Him, He gave the right to be children of God.
The Apostle Paul describes us as Christian believers, as being like ‘earthen vessels’ or ‘jars of clay’ and yet able to contain the excellence of the power of God. But without the light (Who is Jesus Christ) there is no power. “For God, who said, ‘let light shine out of darkness,’ made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
When speaking of Jesus, the writer of Hebrews said: “Therefore, when He (Jesus) came into the world, He said: ‘Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but a bodyYou have prepared for Me. In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You had no pleasure. Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come—In the volume of the book it is written of me’” (Hebrews 10:5-7). (These words were quoted from Psalm 40:6 & 7)
