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.

Are you exhausted? Weighed down by many burdens? Hebrews chapter four carries with it the invitation to God's rest. In this message we look at the availability of God's rest, the nature of His rest, and the pursuit of His rest.

Hard-heartedness is a theme in the Bible. Todays text says, "Today, if you hear my voice do not Harden your heart..." In this message we look at the progression of hard-heartedness, then the results and finally the remedy.

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.

This week we took a look at Hebrews 1:1-3. Jesus is "the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature." God spoke to us through his son, Jesus. Immanuel (God with us), literally reached down into our lives. There was never a better revelation of God than Jesus.

Last week, we looked at the incarnate Jesus before the foundation of the world. This week we look at His glorious return from Matthew 25. His return will be both great and terrible. Great for those who have placed their faith in Christ’s finished work on the cross. It will also be terrible for those who rejected His sacrifice. When Jesus returns He will not come in the vulnerable way He came as a baby. He will come in power with all the angels and He will come to judge the world.

Matthew and Luke share the physical birth of Jesus in the beginning of their gospels. John goes back a lot farther to Jesus' existence before time began. In John 1, he explains who the eternal monogenes (only son) is. He is life, light, the Word, and he is the Creator... that took on flesh and dwelt among us.

This is the first Sunday of the Advent season and we are focusing on God's glory. The glory of God is the beauty of His nature. When you meet God in any way you see His glory. Glory of His holiness, mercy, love, righteousness etc... When we give glory to God we acknowledge His glorious attributes. Paul encountered God's glory on the road to Damascus. That encounter with God's glory was so significant that he lived the rest of His life for God's glory.

Paul faces a different kind of storm from the wrath he often gets as the Jewish listeners rush him to do him harm. In Acts 27 the storm is a real storm and it leads to a shipwreck. In this message we look at the contrast between facing storms without God verses facing storms with God.

Have you ever wondered if the gospel is for everyday or something you get and then put away for later? Christians never put the gospel away for later. We need it every day. In Acts 26 Pastor Dave explains Paul's calling, his message, and the deep desire of his heart. All of them are about the amazing gospel.

This week we looked at the living sent tool box that Paul uses regularly. The three tools he used in chapter 24 are his testimony, reason, and courage. This message describes those tools that can also be in our own tool boxes for sharing Jesus.

This week we looked at the elders that Paul established as he finished his third missionary journey. We looked at four questions: who calls elders, what is their role, what do they do, and how do they do it?
