  • Christology Breeds Perseverance
  • Christology Breeds Confidence

 Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Hebrews 4:14-16. What do we learn about Jesus from these verses? What makes him so great? Be sure to check out Hebrews 2:14-18 as well.
  2. What do we mean when we say “Christology breeds perseverance…confidence”? How does this encourage you to be a diligent student of theology?
  3. What does it mean to “hold fast our confession” (v. 14)? Why is this so important? Compare with Hebrews 3:12-14.
  4. What does it mean to “draw near to the throne of grace”? Why might we lack confidence to draw near? What hinders you from drawing near?
  5. What can you do in this new year to cultivate a deeper prayer life?

Memory Verse of the Week:

Hebrews 4:16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (ESV)
