What comes to mind when you think about God? A.W. Tozer said that what comes to mind when we think about God is the most important thing about us. How you view God impacts the way you live your life. Do you expect God to answer you? Do you anticipate His work in your life? A life that sees God is a life lived with expectation.

 
 

When you wake up in the morning, what is on your mind? There are certainly many different things we might consider each day. But is one of those thoughts a desire to honor Jesus? As we conclude the book of Hebrews, we see the author give some practical applications to help each one of us honor Jesus.

We live in a good news, bad news world. The bad news helps us to see why the good news is so good. When we look at our life of faith, we see that there are two contrasting positions. We can live trying to earn our salvation through good works, or we can live under the grace of God to save us by the work of Jesus Christ. The bad news is that we can never earn our way to God. The good news is that we don’t have to because Jesus Christ has made a way. Our job is to surrender our life to Him and trust Him as our Savior.

The Christian life is a life lived by faith. This means that we live different than the world. In this next section, the writer of Hebrews gives some practical ways we can live out this faith that we have. We all need to keep pursuing the eternal things when the temporal is so compelling.
