    ( a disciple ) heb 13:5 let your conversation be without covetousness and be content with such things as you have for HE hath said I will never leave thee nor forsake thee 1 tim 6:6 but godliness with contentment is great gain

    Vs. 16 God teaches us true generosity with the right motive. Holidays seem to be the season of giving, but outside of them how inclined are we to do good for others? Jehovah God teaches us to be generous all year round and for good motives. We bring him joy when we do so.

    V. 10 - At this time, after Jesus' new covenant was now in force, the unbelieving Jews were still (ineffectually) observing the O.T. rituals (which blood could never take away sins, those rituals just rolled them ahead for one year). These Jews had no right, in their unsaved state, to partake of the new covenant altar. There were MANY Jews, i.e. apostles, disciples, that believed, but most not.

    This is a chap of exhortation encouraging us not to stop entertaining strangers, to remember those that are in bonds, encouraging marriage, not to be covetous, not to follow strange doctrines but to be established in the grace, to be submissive to our rulers etc. And he crowns all that with verses 20-21 my best. That the God of peace make us perfect... To Him be glory for ever and ever. Amen!

    chapter 13 is just saying that we need to follow the laws and do what the one over us say. Because this is not our home., We're passing through on the journey to the place prepared for by Jesus. Telling us to Love one other at all times. Let our living be the Bible for others to see. Believe in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and God our Father. To Love Unconditionally the way God Loves Us.
  • BSP
    Verse 7 encourages us to remember those taking the lead over us. We want to especially keep them in our prayers.
