Hebrews 10:26 and following is one of the most difficult passages in the Bible to understand correctly. It says, "If we go on sinning deliberately there no longer remains a sacrifice for sin."  This morning Pastor Dave will try to help us interpret this passage by asking some good questions and then applying the truths we learn.

This Sunday we turned the corner to application, after 10 chapters of laying a theological foundation. The pattern is simple since we have confidence to enter the holy places, and since we have a great High priest (Jesus), let us draw near to God.  This message lays out 4 privileges we have as a result of the foundation we have in Jesus.

A lot of New Testament Christians have an Old Testament hangover. They continue to live as old covenant followers even though the sacrifice Jesus offered was once and for all. In this message we look at the status, means, focus and work of the old and new covenant. With a goal of seeing what it is to live forgiven.

Have you ever felt far from God? Imagine what it would be like to be separated by a tent and a courtyard where only the priests could be next to the place where God dwelt, and where only the high priest could enter that most holy place once a year. Even then it didn't forgive all their sins, it just covered them.  The author shows how Jesus fulfills all of the shadows and delivers a far better eternal redemption.

Is the Old Covenant obsolete? Well Hebrews 8 says it's becoming obsolete, because Jesus is the real thing that fulfills the copies and shadows that the Old Covenant displayed. In this message we look at why the Old Covenant didn't work, and how Jesus is a better High Priest, a better sacrifice, and has better promises.

Palm Sunday reminds us of the hope of the Messiah coming to be our King. Hebrews 7 reminds us that Jesus is not only a King, but that He is a King who came to die as our Great High Priest. Understanding that Jesus is fully, perfectly, equally, and simultaneously Priest and King is foundational to understanding our Savior and His finished work on the cross.

March 18, 2018 - Worship Through Giving (Wyatt Fisher)

This week we hear from one of our elders, Wyatt Fisher, on what it means to worship God through giving. Giving involves more than just money. It reveals where our heart and our faith is.

The third warning in the book of Hebrews is about not falling away from the faith. It begins with a clear explanation that there is much we could know, but we are content to have dull hearing. Then Pastor Dave helps us take a look at one of the most difficult passages in the Bible and gives four views to get us started.

Chapter 5 of Hebrews continues to look at Jesus as our high priest. In this message we compare the human priestly line from Aaron with Jesus. We also see again the depth of Jesus' sacrifice for us and why he understands our suffering. The text concludes with the statement, "Being made perfect He became the source of our eternal salvation."

This week we looked at a very familiar passage. Hebrews 4:15: "For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses..."  What is unique about this text is that it follows the exposure of sin by the Word of God. Which leads us not to shame and hiding, but to a Savior and high priest who understands, who liberates us from the penalty of our sin, and Invites us to come in confidence to the throne of GRACE!

Hebrews 4:12 says, "The word of God is living and active, sharper than a two edged sword..."  The question is how does it fit the instruction to enter into God's rest.  The invitation to rest is an invitation to enter into a relationship with God, where his word will penetrate to the deepest places in our soul.  It will discern our thoughts and intentions with the purpose of making us more like Christ.

Continuing our study of Hebrews, this message focused on Hebrews 3:1-6 under the title, Jesus, Moses, and You. We highlighted the greatness of Moses, with added significance to Jesus' greatness. "Consider Jesus" (v.1) as a command to give Jesus continual attention was central in our thinking. The main application was to encourage confidence in Christ.

Jesus made a perfect world for us at creation, a creation that we were meant to rule and manage. But we chose sin, and invited Satan to begin to corrupt the Lord's perfect world. Jesus could have left us alone or destroyed us, but he decided to redeem His world through the incarnation. The author of Hebrews shows us the awesome wonder of our Restorer.

Pay close attention to your relationship with Jesus or you will drift away.   Chapter one has no command, but chapter two starts with one. Drifting is a result of our sinful nature, all of us have a natural bent toward serving ourselves. That means that there is really no such thing as coasting. You are either focused on Christ or you are drifting to the sea of regret. This week we look at this challenge along with a few helps for understanding the Bible.

There is always pressure to make Jesus lower than He is. In Hebrews chapter 1, the author is making it clear that Jesus is supremely over the angels. In this message, we will look at the name of Jesus, the throne of Jesus, and the worship He receives from the angels. In the end Jesus has at his disposal myriads of angels who are servants sent out to minister to believers.

We long to be blessed and we were wired to bless. It's part of being made in the image of God. When we speak and deliver good into other people's live we are blessing them and fulfilling a significant part of our purpose. Numbers 6:24-26 helps us see God's blessing in our past and His faithfulness into the future.
