It can be difficult to tell the difference between something really important, and someone just trying to get us to listen to them
The author of Hebrews makes some pretty impressive statements about angels, but then guides us to Someone who is even more important.
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.
If what is in our heart reflects in our behavior, shouldn't we expect the same thing to be true for others?
It may take work to keep up, but it's worth it.
If we aren't demonstrating all of the fruit of the Spirit, does that mean we're just not trying hard enough?
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?
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?
After giving up a life of selfishness and pride for new life through Jesus, have we planned for what we will do next?
If we got to be part of a loving, successful family, why would we want to go back to just working for them?
Sometimes, waiting makes a big event more special.
When a family shares characteristics (whether external or internal), our individuality can still shine out as we honor that family.
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?
Do followers of Jesus try to do good things in order to earn His love, or because He already loved them?
If God's direction is good for helping us live better lives, wouldn't some extra rules help us to do even better?
Have you ever skipped over a word you didn't understand, hoping to learn what it means later?
Is it possible to fit in so much with well-meaning people that we exclude those who Jesus specifically wants us to reach?
Truth is not necessarily the same thing as the majority opinion.
We live in a world of conflicting ideas that can't all be true at once. How do we find the truth in all that, and does it matter whether or not we do so?
If you're going to let someone teach you, make sure that they aren't just an infiltrator trying to make you believe a lie
