A Journey Through the New Testament Letters

Justin Smith

Hello, my name is Justin Smith, and I am the proud husband to Michelle, my bride of four and one half years, and father to two wonderful children, Sofia (2½) and Luca (1). We are not from Texas and proudly claim Kentucky (Go CATS!) as "where we come from." When people ask what brought us to Texas four years ago, the worldly answer is work, but the true answer is Christ. Since moving to Texas, we have learned that there are fans and followers of Jesus. Today, by faith in Christ alone, it is easy to LIVE as more than just fans!

GOD'S PROMISE AND HIS OATH ARE AN ANCHOR FOR OUR SOULS!

Hebrews 6:13-20

The Certainty of God's Promise

13 For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself, 14 saying, “Surely I will bless you and multiply you.” 15 And thus Abraham, [1] having patiently waited, obtained the promise. 16 For people swear by something greater than themselves, and in all their disputes an oath is final for confirmation. 17 So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, 18 so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. 19 We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, 20 where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek. (ESV)
