The Lord Is My Helper

~ Good Morning!

The Bible passage is a little long, so I’ll keep my comments short.

Our devotion today comes from Hebrews 13:1-8 
(1) “Keep being concerned about each other as the Lord’s followers should. (2) Be sure to welcome strangers into your home. By doing this, some people have welcomed angels as guests, without even knowing it. (3) Remember the Lord’s people who are in jail and be concerned for them. Don’t forget those who are suffering, but imagine you are there with them. (4) Have respect for marriage. Always be faithful to your partner, because God will punish anyone who is immoral or unfaithful in marriage. (5) Don’t fall in love with money. Be satisfied with what you have. The Lord has promised that he will not leave us or desert us. (6) This should make you feel like saying, “The Lord helps me! Why should I be afraid of what people can do to me?” (7) Don’t forget about your leaders who taught you God’s message. Remember what kind of lives they lived and try to have faith like theirs. (8)  Jesus Christ never changes! He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (CEV)

THE BOTTOM LINE

  • V. 1: Have Brotherly/Sisterly Love for One Another.
  •  V. 2: Express Hospitality. Angels?!
  •  V. 3: Don’t Forget about the Incarcerated, Mistreated and/or Suffering.
  •  V. 4: Honor Your Marital Relationship.
  •  V. 5: Don’t fall in Love with Money; Live Contently.
  •  V. 6: Be Confident in Persecution. Don’t ever forget that the Lord is Your Helper.
  •  V. 7: Follow the Direction of Godly Leadership.
  •  V. 8: Don’t Ever Forget that Jesus is Continuously, and Forever, the Same!

Conclusion

Because of what Jesus has, sacrificially, done for each of us, the Apostle Paul calls all believers to live a life that honors, pleases and offers praise to the Lord.

You can do this. Remember, Jesus is your Helper!
