This refers to the way leading the redeemed back to Jerusalem, the throne of Messiah, literally and spiritually. Christ Himself is to be the leader on that way, called in Isaiah 40:3, the “way of the Lord.”
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Isaiah 35:8.
This final command found at James 4:10 sums up the preceding nine commands, which mark the truly humble person. “Humble” comes from the word meaning “to make oneself low.” Those conscious of being in the presence of the majestic, infinitely holy God are humble (Isaiah 6:5).
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for James 4:10.
As seen throughout the book of Hebrews, sacrifices were extremely important under the Old Covenant. Under the New Covenant, God desires the praise and thanksgiving of His people rather than offerings of animals or grain. Since New Testament believers are priests (1 Peter 2:5,9), they have offerings of praise and thanks to God (Romans 12:1).
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Hebrews 13:15.
Unbelievers will not be drawn to accept Christ if believers’ lives do not demonstrate the qualities God desires, including peace and holiness.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Hebrews 12:14.
The praise and thanks from the lips of God’s people must be followed by loving action.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Jesus Christ does not change.
Everything physical will be destroyed; only eternal things will remain.

~1 Timothy 6:17-19~
Those who have much tend to trust in their wealth (Prov. 23:4-5). But God provides far more security than any earthly investment can ever give (Eccl. 5:18-20, Matt. 6:19-21).
