Daily devtion header.jpgHebrews 13

Keep on loving each other as brothers and sisters. 2 Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it! 3 Remember those in prison, as if you were there yourself. Remember also those being mistreated, as if you felt their pain in your own bodies.

4 Give honour to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery.

5 Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said,

“I will never fail you.
I will never abandon you.”

6 So we can say with confidence,

“The Lord is my helper,
so I will have no fear.
What can mere people do to me?”

7 Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and follow the example of their faith.

8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

This passage of scripture has two very popular, quotable Bible verses

Never will I leave you nor forsake you

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever

But I’d never really read this passage through the lens of relationships. It’s a passage about honouring people, showing hospitality, living in love, remembering people we so easily forget, giving honour to marriage, not loving money

The point of the passage is that the foundational building blocks for Christian living, for healthy relationships is knowing Jesus is steadfast and certain, he does not change and knowing that he will never leave you

It’s from that foundation that we can begin to love well, live well and lead well

Have a blessed day
