The author of Hebrews makes some pretty impressive statements about angels, but then guides us to Someone who is even more important.

Starting with Jesus
In the book of Hebrews, the author jumps right in without much of an introduction. Let's see what he thought was more important than a greeting.
Thoughts from Galatians 5-6
If what is in our heart reflects in our behavior, shouldn't we expect the same thing to be true for others?
Trying to Keep in Step
It may take work to keep up, but it's worth it.
What Walking by the Spirit Looks Like
If we aren't demonstrating all of the fruit of the Spirit, does that mean we're just not trying hard enough?
What Walking by the Spirit Does Not Look Like
Paul lists a number of "acts of the flesh" in the book of Galatians. Is this just another list of rules, containing things that followers of Jesus must avoid?
What Will I Do Without My Security Blanket?
Have we become too dependent upon a system of rules? Are we afraid to let go of our rules and trust God to lead us?
What Else Is There?
After giving up a life of selfishness and pride for new life through Jesus, have we planned for what we will do next?
Supporter or Family Member?
If we got to be part of a loving, successful family, why would we want to go back to just working for them?
Ready for the Big Day
Sometimes, waiting makes a big event more special.
Clean, Clothed, and in Community
When a family shares characteristics (whether external or internal), our individuality can still shine out as we honor that family.
In Custody and Under Guardianship
If there's a better option than remaining in custody, why would we want to go back after we are reunited with loved ones again?
Cause or Effect?
Do followers of Jesus try to do good things in order to earn His love, or because He already loved them?
