Christians should be content, whether they are rich or poor. They should love God, and not money. As Jesus said, it is impossible for both God and money to rule a person’s life at the same time (Matthew 6:24). Christians do not need to worry about money because they trust God. He will provide for them (Matthew 6:25-34). Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”  ~ Hebrews 13:5

New Testament:
Hebrews 13:1-25

Summary: Sacrifices Pleasing to God

 

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body. ~ Hebrews 13:2-3

 

Remember them that are in bonds,…. Not for criminal actions, or for debt, though such should be remembered, and pity showed them, especially the latter; but such as are in bonds for the sake of Christ, and the Gospel. This has been often the lot of God’s people, who should be remembered, by praying for them, sending comfortable letters to them, personally visiting them, and relieving them under their distresses: ~ John Gill

 

New ideas about religion

Do not be led away by diverse and strange teachings, for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace, not by foods, which have not benefited those devoted to them. ~ Hebrews 13:9

 

Strange and different ideas about religion have become popular again. People like to hear someone whose ideas excite their imagination. But Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and always (Hebrews 13:8). And his good news will never change (Galatians 1:6-9).

 

The first Christian leaders knew this problem well. That is why they constantly referred to the Old Testament (the first part of the Bible). They wanted to prove that they really were teaching God’s word. During their lives, God was doing things that he had promised to do long before. So their message was not different or strange. It was the same message that God had always declared to his people.

 

The problem was that, even in the first Christian churches, some people were already teaching strange and different messages. And often, they too said that their ideas came from the Old Testament. But they were not teaching people to believe and to trust in Jesus. They were not teaching people that only God’s grace (love and kindness) can save them by the death of Jesus. Instead, they taught people to obey rules, customs and traditions. And they taught that people could save themselves by that method. That is why those ideas were strange and different. And they were also wrong, foolish, and dangerous

Occasionally, plans fail. Relationships change over time. As time passes, people fade away. However, there is one relationship you will always have. Here’s a reminder from today’s video.
