His words in my heart- Hebrews

Today as I was working, I was struck dumb as I realized my lack of discipline when it comes to memorizing verses of the Bible- I was trying hard to recite, in my head, a few verses of the beginning of Hebrews 1 because I needed encouragement, and the only thing I had was a vague image of those verses. How frustrating is that ! I thought, therefore, that it would be a good idea to start gathering things of the Scripture in this new category, “His words in my heart”, to pinpoint those parts I need the most.

Christ in Hebrews chapter 1

  • Heir of all things
  • Through whom the world was made
  • The radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His nature
  • He who upholds all things by the word of His power.
  • He made purification of sins
  • He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high
  • He has inherited a more excellent name than the angels
  • He has loved righteousness and hated lawlessness
  • The heavens are the work of His hands
  • He will remain
  • His years will never come to an end

Chapter 2:

  • He was made for a little while lower than the angels
  • Because of the suffering of death He was crowned with glory and honor
  • by the grace of God He tasted death for everyone.
  • for Him are all things, and through Him are all things,
  • Through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil
  • and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.
  • He was made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God
  • For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted

Chapter 3

  • He is the Apostle and High Priest of our confession
  • He was faithful to Him who appointed Him
  • He has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses
  • Christ was faithful as a Son over His house—whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope firm until the end.

Chapter 4

  • He is the great high priest who has passed through the heavens
  • We do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses…
  • …But One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin

Chapter 5

  • Christ did not glorify Himself so as to become a high priest
  • In the days of His flesh, He offered up both prayers and supplications with loud crying and tears to the One able to save Him from death
  • Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered.
  • He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation,
