COMPETENCE with GOD

March 30, 2017

Hebrews 13:20-21

 

Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord, equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

 

 

LESSON

 

The writer referred to God as “the God of peace.” He is the source of peace between redeemed sinners and Himself, and the source of peace between believers, in this case Jews and Christians. The evidence that God has made peace is that He “brought up from the dead . . . Jesus our Lord.”

Peace means not merely calmness and rest of conscience and heart, based on the righteousness of God, but it means also restoration to health and well-being.

 

It was the writer’s concern that his readers be ready to reign with Jesus Christ. This is the purpose for remaining faithful to God throughout the epistle. Part of our full inheritance is the privilege of reigning with Him. To attain this privilege, we must continue to press on toward maturity, by following Jesus Christ faithfully, rather than turning from Him.

 

Memory Verse: Proverbs 22:6

 

Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell ’em, ‘Certainly I can!’ Then get busy and find out how to do it.”
