We spent the winter of 2013 studying the first six chapters of this book, concluding that as believers we are to be “Grounded for Growth”.  We learned to be rooted, anchored, faithful, have resolve, and walk humbly before God.  The writer of Hebrews now spells out our position in Christ, teaches us how to worship God, provides the stimulus and motivation to persevere, illustrates faith from several vantage points, and encourages us to live out our faith in practical ways.  In short, how to be Equipped for Eternity!
