Our Superior Jesus

Scripture(s): Hebrews 1:1-4

The book of Hebrews is deep book with a simple message: Jesus is the best expression of God that we could ever wish for or imagine.  Chase after Him.

 

 

 

Our Superior Jesus

Scripture(s): Hebrews 1:1-4

The book of Hebrews is deep book with a simple message: Jesus is the best expression of God that we could ever wish for or imagine.  Chase after Him. – Such a good text that I had to preach on it twice!

The Son is No Mere Angel

Scripture(s): Hebrews 1:5-14

No matter how great a thing is, nothing is better than the Creator.  That is the relationship between Jesus and angels.  He is greater.

The Consequences of Jesus’ Greatness

Scripture(s): Hebrews 2:1-4 with assorted other verses from Hebrews

Truth has consequences.  There is no truth greater than the fact that Jesus is greater than all.  So, what happens now that Jesus has revealed Himself to the world?

A Little Lower

Scripture(s): Hebrews 2:5-18

When Jesus became human he was brought low. To him it was worth it.

Called to Faithfulness

Scripture(s): Hebrews 3:1-6

We have people in our lives who speak to us even though we are no longer around them. Do we let Moses do that?

Hard Hearts Hurt

Scripture(s): Hebrews 3:7-19

Therefore… because of the faithfulness of Jesus and Moses… Don’t get hard.

Holding Fast Because of Others

Scripture(s): Hebrews 4:1-13 

So, we can be motivated by the inspiration of others or the cost to ourselves. Can we be motivated by our love of others?

Our Compassionate Savior

Scripture(s): Hebrews 4:14-5:10

Some people’s understanding of salvation is heavy with the consequences for sin. We emphasize those consequences because so many do not understand their need for a Savior. Yet, do we really understand why Jesus went to the trouble of dying for us? Do we know how He views us and our daily struggles to honestly love for Him? Do we know His compassion?

The Deep Waters of Faith – Melchizedek and Jesus

Scripture(s): Heb 5:11-14; Heb 7:1-28

Studying “types” is not easy. It is important,  yet difficult work. This mysterious Melchizedek shows us that we cannot be saved by our own merit.

Playing instead of Believing

Scripture(s): Scripture(s): Hebrews 6

There is no more important faith rule than to take our relationship with Jesus seriously. If we don’t, we will discover real spiritual pain.

The New Covenant – What is It?

Scripture(s): Hebrews 8

The gift of salvation is amazing because it brings together all those things which make gifts wonderful: person, cost, and perfection.

The New Covenant: We Can Look to the Future!

Scripture(s): Hebrews 9

Sometimes we are helped understand things by pictures. Preachers use word pictures to capture our imaginations. What Jesus has done for us can be understood in pictures as well.

Christ’s Sufficiency, Our Assurance

Scripture(s): Hebrews 10

All significant truths have significant consequences. Whether it is gravity or the sufficiency of Christ’s sacrifice, they all have consequences. Ignoring those consequences are when we have trouble.

Being Ready for Citizenship

Scripture(s):Hebrews 11

We want something more.  We yearn for it.  Yet, do we act like we have to live by this world’s rules?  We say that Christ gives us another choice. Does He or doesn’t He?

Being Ready for Citizenship (part 2)

Scripture(s): Hebrews 11

We want something more.  We yearn for it.  That something is God’s perfect Heaven. Yet, do we act like we have to live by this world’s rules?  We say that Christ gives us another choice. Do we live like it?

How Do We Endure

Scripture(s): Hebrews 12:1-3

Being called a saint may seem daunting to us. However, becoming a saint is simple. Sainthood = salvation. Being a faithful disciple is also simple. Walk in the steps that Jesus walked. How? Follow good examples.

Why We Should Listen

Scripture(s):  Hebrews 12:4-11, 18-29

We are all tempted to follow Adam and Eve’s example when hurt. We must run to God instead of away from Him when the times of struggle come.

 

Growing Together

Scripture(s): Hebrews 12:12-17

Too many times Christians think that the call to love each other has to do with good feelings and fellowship.  The call to love also involves sacrifice.  Even more important, the call to love calls us to spur one another on in love and good deeds. It gives us the power to endure together.

What Does Enduring Look Like?

Scripture(s): Hebrews 13:1-8

There is something special about God that is truly different from us – He doesn’t vacillate or change. One implication of that is that the character He wants His people to have doesn’t change either.

The Sacrifice Grace Deserves

Scripture(s): Hebrews 13:8-16

As we think of grace, what sacrifices would be appropriate? It isn’t going back to the law. That is not the answer. It is the sacrifice of every relationship: fidelity, commitment, and love.

Safeguards

Scripture(s): Hebrews 13:17-25

In order to help us endure with joy, we are given powerful safeguards for our future. If we follow this exhortation, we can face the future with confidence that we won’t be one of those who find themselves shipwrecked in the life of faith.

Safeguards (part 2)

Scripture(s): Hebrews 13:17-25

In order to help us endure with joy, we are given powerful safeguards for our future. If we follow this exhortation, we can face the future with confidence that we won’t be one of those who find themselves shipwrecked in the life of faith.
