“But, beloved, we are convinced of better things concerning you, and things that accompany salvation….”
— Hebrews 6:9
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study in the book of Hebrews and shows us that amid the stern warning that the author of Hebrews has been giving to his readers, in our passage today, he points to a promise…a promise from God.
But what are the these “better things” that accompany salvation???
And how do they assure us of God’s good works and faithfulness in our lives — and ultimately provide us with, what the author describes as, “full assurance of hope until the end”?

Description: John pauses in the giving of tests of salvation to draw the reader’s attention back to the objective foundation and ground of their justification. He addresses the church in all stages of maturity, from the new believer to the spiritually mature. This passage serves as a parenthetical comment, as it were, so that our self-reflection doesn’t leave us looking inside of us for answers but outside of ourselves to Christ.
Description: The seventeenth century puritan, Thomas Brooks, wrote that “assurance is a pearl that most want but a crown that few wear.” A Christian with assurance of faith knows that he belongs to Christ, that his sins are forgiven, that God loves him, and that he will enjoy everlasting life. While many assume that it is presumptuous to desire assurance of salvation, Scripture teaches otherwise. In our text this morning the Apostle John provides us the first of three tests so that the Christian may examine himself and rest, assured!
Description: No words of Scripture “… hold within themselves a deeper mystery than this simple formula of the Christian life, ‘in Christ‘” (J. Gordon). This message takes a quick look at the believers’ faith and walk in Christ. Our challenge remains to reproduce in our lives the righteousness which is already ours in Christ.
