Daily Fountain 2017 - Dull Of Understanding






Wednesday January 11th

Bible Reading:     Heb. 5: 7 - 14

Topic:         Dull Of Understanding

In this passage, the Writer of the Epistle who was writing to Jewish converts from Judaism, details the Excellency of Jesus' Priesthood.

In his words. Jesus' prayer was heard because of His reverent submission to the Will of God even unto death. (Heb. 2: 9 - 10)

This representation (vs. 12) was necessary because their spiritual growth has been impeded by their response to the persecution they were facing at the time.

Because many were considering making the unthinkable move to return to Judaism, he showed then that Christ was Superior to both Moses and the priesthood of Aaron

How often do you study the Bible?

Paul admonished Timothy to study to show himself approved to avoid intellectual laziness and inability to distinguish truth from error. (2 Tim. 2: 15; Acts 17: 11)

Psalm 91: 1 tells us that "he that dwelleth in the Secret Place of the Most High shall abide under the Shadow of the Almighty"; if you dwell in the Word of God, you will be able to hear and understand the Will of God and as you obey Him, you will grow spiritually and God will release His blessings on your life as "blessing always follows obedience"

Prayer:
Father as we draw nearer to Thee, may You give us Your grace to hear and understand from You in Jesus Name
Amen

Memory verse:   Heb. 5: 14
"but strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age and even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil"
