Jesus, the Promise Fulfilled

Today’s Reading: Hebrews 11:32-40


Hebrews 6:12 — So that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.


God promises His promises. The Bible is the story of God’s great promise to us—Jesus Christ. From the very first chapters of the book of Genesis, God promises a savior. Throughout the Old Testament, the promise of an anointed deliverer is repeated, and in the New Testament the promise is fulfilled in birth of Jesus.


Hebrews 11 speaks about all the people of ancient times who put their faith in the promises of God. They did not live long enough to see Christ at His first coming, but the hope of a savior and walking by faith in God’s promises filled their lives with meaning, purpose, and blessings for which they were even willing to even die.


Where are all of those people now? They are in the presence of God. They believed, trusted, and put their faith in God’s great promises, and although they never met Christ in this earthly life, they met Him in heaven. They inherited the Promised One.


How can believers in Christ can be fulfilled by putting their faith in someone they cannot see? Peter says it well in 1 Peter 1:8: “Though you have not seen Him, you love Him. Though you do not now see Him, you believe in Him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory.” 


This is the sweet reality of being a Christian. We love Jesus and believe in Him because we have a personal relationship with Him. Our eyes have never beheld Jesus, but our hearts have and our spirits rejoice in knowing the Savior. Our lives are filled with meaning, purpose, blessings, and hope. We have Jesus with us as we walk through this life, and it is glorious.


“He has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature” (2 Peter 1:4).

…03/23/2024 Devotional “Our lives are filled with meaning, purpose, blessings, and hope. We have Jesus with us as we walk through this life, and it is glorious.” I live for the Lord. God is the purpose of my life, go to church, and live a life of faith. But maybe, Am I being too subjective? Am I thinking of the church for the Lord’s benefit rather than for me?Are there reasons other than the Lord for coming to church? Is there another reason hidden in my heart that only I know. I say and act that I live for the Lord, but I look back and see where I am heading. Thank you Jesus!
