Matthew Henry, 18th-century British theologian and author, is best known for his exhaustive verse-by-verse Bible commentary, Exposition of the Old and New Testaments. In his study of the book of Hebrews, Henry wrote about faith: “Christ dwells in the soul by faith. . . . It is designed to serve the believer instead of sight, and to be to the soul all that the senses are to the body.”
This month in Today in the Word, as we study the book of Hebrews, we’ll follow Matthew Henry’s example by taking a wider look at our faith in Christ. We’ll learn how to view faith through the prism of God’s Word given to us (chapters 1–6); we’ll consider the connection of Christ’s redemptive work and our faith in Him (chapters 7–10); and we’ll see the power of faith, hope, and love in relation to God’s call on our lives in Christ (chapters 10–13).
So join us on this soul-enriching journey this month. Our prayer for you is that the powerful message in Hebrews will strengthen, enrich, and enliven your faith, that your hope will endure, and your love will abound. Thank you for being part of the Today in the Word family! Your faithful prayers, your financial support, and kind words about this ministry are a testimony and an encouragement to all of us!
