In a world where everyone strives to be number one, Jesus alone retains the right to that spot. That’s the driving theme in the book of Hebrews. Jesus is better than and greater than anything! It’s possible for good activities and goals to keep us from the best. Lesser things hinder us in chasing after what God designed to be the best. While presenting a clear and compelling case for Jesus being greater than anything, the book of Hebrews is full of warnings. Throughout the book, there are constant warnings to avoid spiritual drifting, to resist the pull towards spiritual immaturity, and to avoid shallowness in our walk with Jesus. Hebrews consistently flashes bright yellow caution lights. There’s danger ahead! Don’t go down that road! There’s a dead end ahead! True spiritual health requires us to heed the warnings and focus on making Jesus first in our lives. While Hebrews has many great verses worth memorizing, it is best read in a single setting. Try to clear a larger block of time and slowly read through the entire book in one setting. Consider reading or listening to it in different translations. God’s Word to the Hebrews is incredibly relevant. It speaks into our world. It addresses our challenges. It pushes us to live focused and walk wisely. My prayer is that the Word will do a deep work in our hearts as we live knowing that Jesus is GREATER THAN.
