Part 5 - Resting by Faith
Overview: The Blood of the Covenant: Fully Efficacious
Chapter six of Hebrews gives a practical teaching in walking in the faith necessary for entering a rest in Jesus Christ. The faith it points to is one that depends upon the full efficacy of the shed blood of Christ. The writer gives two reasons for going forward in faith: a believer cannot go back and be saved a second time, and a believer has the promise of blessing that comes not through the Law but through Christ. The believer is to go forward, taking up the faith and patience of Abraham, who believed the promise of God. This same promise provides the path of blessing through Christ to every believer.
