Stranger and Pilgrims on the Earth

by Linda Sasso

As we continue to focus on what faith that pleases God looks like, we now come to Sarah, the wife of Abraham. We call Abraham, “the father of our faith”. But Sarah also demonstrates a faith pleasing to God. Often, we think real faith must be perfect without any defects. But in this chapter, we […]

The Power and Importance of Faith

by Mike Sasso

Two important lessons from the book of Hebrews. First, Jesus Christ is superior to all. He is superior to the angels for He created the angels. He is greater than Moses because He is Moses’ creator and Lord. He is superior to the Old Covenant priesthood as He is God’s great, final, eternal high priest […]

The Obedience of Faith

by Mike Sasso

We love to tout the expression that we are “saved by grace through faith” (Eph 2:8-9). And we are emboldened at the fact that we are made right with God “through faith” (Rom 5:1). Noah is an example of a life of faith that goes far beyond merely acknowledging something to be true. Noah is […]

BY FAITH, Abel, Enoch & You

by Mike Sasso

As we continue to study the biblical concept of faith, let’s focus on a key verse in this study.   But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6, NKJV)    The Commentator Albert Barnes brings […]

What is Biblical Faith?

by Mike Sasso

Excerpts from Everyman’s Bible Commentary on the Characteristics of faith, 11:1-3. The guiding principle of the Christian life is faith. This is not simply a psychological factor, however. To some people faith means believing that you can do a job better than you have done it in the past or believing that a loved one will […]

The Unforgivable Sin

by Mike Sasso

Do you know that the bible teaches us that there is an unforgivable sin? Do you know what it is? Have you ever been fearful that you might have done it?   The concept of the unforgivable sin has been a horrifying thought that the devil has used to terrify and paralyze many sincere and […]

Perfect, Yet being Made Holy

by Mike Sasso

Today’s text presents a very important spiritual principle for every Christian to know and embrace. For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.” (Hebrews 10:14)  Because of God’s amazing grace, He has saved us by grace through faith.  For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not […]

Only Jesus

by Mike Sasso

As we have embarked upon our in-depth study of the book of Hebrews, we have learned much about Jesus Christ. We have discovered His superiority over all the greatest heroes and events of the Old Testament. There is no one more important or greater than Jesus in all the Bible. Not Moses, not the angels, […]

The Precious Blood of Jesus

by Mike Sasso

Taken from an ICR devotional …   “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.” (Hebrews 9:22)   It is strange that so many people object to the biblical doctrine of salvation through the shed blood of Christ. Even some evangelicals will argue that […]

Sacred Shadows

by Mike Sasso

We have already learned that the Old Covenant and the Law of Moses were simply types and shadows of the New Covenant and Jesus Christ our high priest forever. The saying proves true. “The Old Testament is the New Testament concealed. And the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed.” The Old Testament is certainly […]
