Hebrews 5:11-12

Lesson 5/Day 7 The author of Hebrews is on a roll. He’s been ramping up the information, and you can feel him moving into this new topic: Melchizedek. Jesus is a priest in the order of the mysterious priest, Melchizedek. And, just when you think he’s going to dive into more details about this topic he interrupts his lesson and he doesn’t pick up the topic again for another 24 verses. That’s a good teacher! That’s a teacher who genuinely cares that those listening are understanding and are prepared to learn. It’s not that the subject is difficult...it’s that he knows his audience and he knows they have a problem....

Lesson 5/Day 6 Even though He was God's Son, Jesus was called to suffer. He learned the full meaning of obedience all the way to death in the things in which He suffered. This is exactly how he was made our perfectly qualified perfect high priest. How do we learn? By experience? “In the days of his flesh” Jesus did the same. Does this mean that Jesus was at some point disobedient?

Lesson 5/Day 5 The author of Hebrews has been establishing the superiority of Jesus since his opening words. He is calling us to pay attention because Jesus is better than angels, providing a better salvation, as a better priest, greater than Abraham, Moses, Joshua, and Aaron who gives a better rest. In chapter five the author continues this focus but zooms in on Jesus as priest and makes the significant point that Jesus is qualified to be the superior high priest...

Lesson 5/Day 4 In his devotional, “Morning and Evening,” Charles Spurgeon said, “Before we had a being in the world, we had a being in His heart.” That’s exactly what the author of Hebrews is getting at. Before we had a being in this world, we had a being in His heart. God had already set in motion a plan by which His Son would be our High Priest before we were even created...more on this in today's lesson

Lesson 5/Day 3 I am overwhelmed in this passage by the theme of mercy. Do you see that God in his great plan saw that we would need a way to him? He wanted the ignorant to come to Him and the wayward to come back to him not so he could greet us with condemnation and scorn – arms crossed with a “where have you been and what have you been doing?” look on his face – No! In his great mercy he not only provided a way, he...more on this in today's lesson Download the study at www.lamiradachurch.com.

Lesson 5/Day 2 Can you reach into fire and experience it up close and personally? Sure, but unless you’re equipped with protection and properly prepared, you’ll experience devastating results. The same is true for God. You can experience God up close as well, but without an invitation and protection you will not survive. That’s not God being unkind. That’s God being true to His nature and still making a way for you and I to “with confidence draw near to the throne of grace.” More on this in today's study...
