God's Promise Is Sure

13No one is greater than God. So he made a promise in his own name when he said to Abraham, 14"I, the Lord, will bless you with many descendants!" 15Then after Abraham had been very patient, he was given what God had promised. 16When anyone wants to settle an argument, they make a vow by using the name of someone or something greater than themselves. 17So when God wanted to prove for certain that his promise to his people could not be broken, he made a vow. 18God cannot tell lies! And so his promises and vows are two things that can never be changed.
We have run to God for safety. Now his promises should greatly encourage us to take hold of the hope that is right in front of us. 19This hope is like a firm and steady anchor for our souls. In fact, hope reaches behind the curtain and into the most holy place. 20Jesus has gone there ahead of us, and he is our high priest forever, just like Melchizedek.
