Hebrews 12

First day of my SOAP reading. I read Hebrews 12 -- following Jesus' example, God as a Father, careful living. Read Hebrews 12, write your own notes and read mine. Let's compare and see what we've learned!

v1-3: I am surrounded by people who love me and are strong Christians. I should join them in their work for God. I should take out of my life anyhing that makes me sin. When people are jerks, I should follow Jesus' example. Even when he suffered daily from the accusations of mean people, Jesus was strong and firm. He never stopped working for God even when things got tough. He made a lasting impression -- one that's lasted over 2,000 years!
v4-11: God is my real father. he is disciplining, teaching, and training me to be more like Him, the person He created me to be: a beautiful, strong, courageous, kind person with a servant's heart.
v12-29: I should be careful how I live. When I'm weak, I must make myself strong again. I need to stay on the right path, the one that leads to God, so I will be strengthened. I should live in peace with everyone (that's hard!). I should live free from sin, becauses sin separates me from God. I need to be careful and listen when God speaks, because His Word is important to me. I am thankful that I am made strong in the Lord and that God's kingdom -- which I am a part of -- can never be destroyed or shaken.


  1. Whoa, that's a lot to soak in! I mean, it's not hard to read, but to really think about it and apply it to my life?
    In fact, I'd LOVE if you would pray that I find ways to apply my Bible reading to my life and live it out.
    If you want me to pray the same for you, let me know.

  2. Sure I can definitely do that :) And it would help allot if you could pray for me too. Thanks for offering :) I'd love to do the Hebrews 12 thing but I'm afraid that I'm out of time and have to go do something else right now. I'll try to do it soon though! Jesus loves you! :)
