Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Hebrews: Week 1, Day 3: Hebrews 3

SUMMARY OF HEBREWS 3:

Jesus, who is the apostle and high priest, was faithful to God and worthy of more honor than Moses. God is the builder of everything. Jesus is faithful as a son over God’s house.

The author of Hebrews quotes Psalm 95:7-11, which says to be faithful to God’s voice. Don’t turn away from God in unbelief. Instead, encourage one another so that no one will have a hard heart towards the Lord. We will share in Christ if we are faithful. Unbelief leads to God’s anger and you will not enter eternal rest if you don’t believe.

QUESTIONS FOR HEBREWS 3:

7) Both Jesus and Moses were faithful to God. However, Moses was faithful as a servant; whereas, Jesus was faithful as God’s son. So Jesus is worthy of more honor accordingly. Moses testified to the future; Jesus is the future. Moses was a servant in God’s house; Jesus is the owner of that house. Moses loved God; Jesus is God.

8 ) Fixing our thoughts on God and Jesus help us to avoid sin’s deceitfulness and turn to unbelief. You can fix your thoughts on Jesus by praying, listening to and for His voice, and following His ways always.

9) Just going to church and being around those who are strong in the faith has helped me. Attending Bible conferences helps, either at your church or regionally. Just continually having a strong network of Christian friends keeps me in the Word and following His way and not the world’s.

CONCLUSIONS TO WORDGO HEBREWS 3

Great lesson about how Jesus is above all. We are now God’s house, thanks to Jesus. This allows us to go directly to God. This is itself amazing.

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Hebrews: Week 1, Day 2: Hebrews 2

SUMMARY OF HEBREWS 2:

The writer of Hebrews warns us to pay attention to what you hear so you don’t drift away from God. The salvation you need to hear by announced by God and confirmed by those that heard him. Plus, there were signs, wonders, and miracles to confirm it.

Everything was put under Jesus, including the angels and subject to him. Jesus is made perfect through suffering.

Jesus was made human so that he could share in their humanity. His death destroyed the devil’s power over them and freed them from the fear of death. Jesus became a merciful high priest to God to atone for humanity’s sins. He can help those who are tempted because Jesus was tempted, too.

6) Fear I’ll not have enough time to accomplish God’s role for me here. Jesus has the power to defeat every sin. Trust in him.

CONCLUSIONS TO WORDGO HEBREWS 2

I love the book of Hebrews and am super excited to be reading it again. I love this passage about Jesus being like us for us. He did so much for us. Paying attention to him is what we need to do more of.

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of Hebrews: Week 1, Day 1: Hebrews 1

SUMMARY OF HEBREWS 1:

God has spoken to us (meaning the Jews) through his Son, Jesus, recently instead of using the prophets or by other means. Jesus is the radiance of God’s glory, and after he completed his work to purify us of our sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, superior to angels. Angels are merely ministering spirits sent to those who will inherit salvation.

QUESTIONS FOR HEBREWS 1:

  1. I love the book of Hebrews, and I love how the author lays out that Jesus is God in Verse 3, superior to all. I also like how angels are inferior to Christians in Verse 14.
  2. Jesus is superior to angels because he sits by God’s right hand, he is God’s son, and angels are to worship Jesus.
  3. All of God’s plan is perfect, good, and true. Only God can divine such perfection, and the connections in the Bible are for us so we can know God’s Word is true.

CONCLUSIONS TO WORDGO HEBREWS 1

The book of Hebrews quotes the Old Testament more than 80 times as the author tries to show the Jewish people the reasons that Jesus is God’s son and why they should believe in him.

I love the Insights into the questions here. I like reading what bible scholars/BSF has to say on the passage.

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of James: Week 2, Day 6: James 3:9-10

PASSAGE IN JAMES

“With the tongues we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness. Our of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be.”

James 3:9-10

REFLECTION QUESTIONS FOR JAMES 3-5

15) Lord, I pray I listen more, am slow to anger, and that my deeds will show my faith. I pray to speak uplifting words and not words that can tear down. I pray to have more patience in the waiting. I think I’d be less stressed, more calm, and a better person overall.

16) God is good. God is faithful. God is there. God listens. God does.

CONCLUSIONS TO WEEK 2 OF WORDGO’S STUDY OF JAMES

This was a short study, but a good one. I actually kind of like how short it was. It gives me a sense of accomplishment right off the bat.

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of James: Week 2, Day 5: James 3-5:

REFLECTION QUESTIONS FOR JAMES 3-5:

13) Live your faith out in prayer.

14) God is good, and He has a plan. We need to submit and let God guide our lives. We need to live each day out according to God’s plan. Be patient.

CONCLUSIONS TO WEEK 2 OF WORDGO’S STUDY OF JAMES

I have no new insights better than James. The book of James is snippets of life advice we should all apply about how to live the Christian faith. There are 54 direct commands from James, as he gets right to the point.

See ya next week for the study of Hebrews!

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of James: Week 2, Day 4: James 5:

SUMMARY OF JAMES 5:

James warns the rich that their wealth has rotted and the moths have eaten their clothes. Their gold and silver are corroded. They have lived on earth in luxury and indulgence and condemned and murdered innocent men.

He tells believers to be patient and stand firm for the Lord is coming. Don’t grumble against each other. Be patient like the prophets. Job persevered. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy. Don’t swear.

Pray for healing for prayer is powerful. Elijah prayed and the Lord answered. Save those who have wandered.

QUESTIONS FOR JAMES 5:

10) Too many ways to name. Those who are wealthy have power, and they do evil sometimes rather than good.

11) I love his example of Job who had the ultimate faith and perseverance. When I get down, remembering Job and all he suffered makes my sufferings inconsequential.

12) I love the prayer offered in faith and when you are in trouble or sick. God doesn’t answer if you don’t ask.

CONCLUSIONS TO WORDGO JAMES 5

Lots of good nuggets and reminders here about how to live. Patience is one of those. Prayer is the other. Remembering those who came before us can give us perspective when we need it the most.

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of James: Week 2, Day 3: James 4:13-17:

SUMMARY OF JAMES 4:13-17:

James warns us against boasting about tomorrow since we could be dead tomorrow. Instead, let God lead you every day to His will. Do the good you know you should do, or you sin.

QUESTIONS FOR JAMES 4:13-17:

7) People boast about anything and everything, from their ability to do something others can’t to the car they drive. They even boast about their special kids or pets.

8 ) The key is giving God the credit for everything we do and listening to His will for our lives. Planning is good and wise, but, as we all know, things don’t always go as planned, and that’s ok.

9) Keep in mind to do good always and for others. That’s all you can do really.

CONCLUSIONS TO WORDGO JAMES 4:13-17

Every talent, gift, and material possession is from God. Believers get in trouble when they forget that and think it’s all them. As long as you know how blessed you are to have the things you do and to do the things you can do, that is all God asks. Acknowledge Him in all things.

Special Prayer Request for My Great Dane

Hey all!

For a few weeks, my old Great Dane has had trouble walking.

Tonight, for the first time, he cannot walk.

My prayer request is that he can, or that God grants the vets and our family wisdom to know what to do.

Thanks in advance!

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of James: Week 2, Day 2: James 4:1-12:

SUMMARY OF JAMES 4:1-12:

Fights and quarrels come from the desires and battles within you. You kill and covet because you can’t have the things you want. You must ask God with the right heart to receive.

God’s people are separate and must not be friends with the world or they will be an enemy of God’s. Submit to God, flee from the devil, come near to God and He will you, and purify your hearts.

Humble yourself, and God will lift you up. Do not slander or judge your neighbor. There’s only one Lawgiver and Judge who can save and destroy.

QUESTIONS FOR JAMES 4:1-12:

4) Your desires for things you cannot have. To ask God for the things you want but ask with the right heart and motives. Plus, they have to be things to be used for the right motives.

5) I’m sure all at some point or another. It’s a constant battle against selfishness, and when you have two or more people fighting against one another who are inherently selfish, it’s bound to turn into a battle of wills.

6) It’s always best to be humble and assume the best in others, rather than try to be right all the time. Let God be in control, and quit fighting Him.

CONCLUSIONS TO WORDGO JAMES 4:1-12:

Great lesson on how we always want it our way when it’s God’s way that is best. Learning to let Him take the lead is one of the most important things in life. Humility and submission are great to practice over and over again.

Summer Bible Study: WordGo’s Study of James: Week 2, Day 1: James 3

SUMMARY OF JAMES 3:

Those who teach hold more responsbility than those that don’t. They will be judged more strictly. Although the tongue is small, it can do great damage like a spark to a forest fire. The tongue has lots of control like a bit in a horse’s mouth. No man can tame the tongue. We all say things we don’t mean. We praise God and then curse our brothers. This should not be.

You show wisdom by your good deeds. Envy and selfishness are of the devil. Heaven’s wisdom is pure, peace-loving, submissive, merciful, impartial, and sincere. Peacemakers sow righteousness.

QUESTIONS FOR JAMES 3:

  1. Our speech reveals our hearts. It shows if we have God or not.

2) The closer I am to God, the more uplifting words come out of my mouth. When I’m mad, not so helpful words come forth. The closer I am to Him, the better I speak.

3) I always seek to be a better parent and more positive in my interactions with others, rather than negative. That does no one any good. By doing God’s will for my life rather than my own, I hope to find wisdom

CONCLUSIONS TO WORDGO JAMES 3:

Good passage. Like our walk with God, we always have to be cognizant of our tongue or we can slip and say something we don’t mean or is hurtful. It’s a constant battle, just like the battle against sin. By listening more as James told us to do in James 1:19, our speech will be better, too.
