A Priest Forever In The Order of Melchizedek

Sermon Series: Jesus is Better - Studies in Hebrews

February 9, 2020

Bible Text: Hebrews 6:13-7:28 |

Series:

In this passage we are introduced to the mysterious Biblical character of Melchizedek. As we seek to understand the author's argument that Jesus' priesthood is superior to all other priesthoods and its implications for us today, we ask three questions in this study:
1. Who is Melchizedek?
2. How is Jesus compared to him?
3. Why do we need a priest in the order of Melchizedek?

Falling Away

February 2, 2020

Bible Text: Hebrews 5:11-6:12 |

Series:

Although this warning passage in the book of Hebrews has been the subject of much discussion and debate throughout the history of the Church, it is also a source of tremendous encouragement to the believer. It deals with the question of whether or not a Christian can lose their salvation.

In trying to understand this controversial passage, in this sermon we ask three basic questions of the text:

1. What does the whole Bible say about losing your salvation?
2. Who is the person described in verses 4-6?
3. What does this mean for Christian assurance of salvation?

Jesus Our Great High Priest

Sermon Series: Jesus is Better - Studies in Hebrews

January 26, 2020

Bible Text: Hebrews 4:14-5:10 |

Series:

In this message we ask the question "Can we be friends with God?" That is, can we have intimate relational connection with the Creator of this universe? Hebrews chapter 4 and 5 teach us that because Jesus Christ is our great high priest who both understands and overcomes our struggles, we can have the confidence of knowing we come in response to a God who has initiated the movement towards reconciliation and relationship with us.

September 29, 2019

Bible Text: Hebrews 3:7-19 |

Series:

Why don't we listen to God's word even when we believe that we ought to? The author of the book of Hebrews helps us answer that question by holding up the desert-wandering Israel as an example of a people who fail to listen to God's word. In this sermon we explore the root causes that result in us not listening to the voice of God.

Jesus Better Than Moses

Sermon Series: Jesus is Better - Studies in Hebrews

September 15, 2019

Bible Text: Hebrews 3:1-6 |

Series:

For many of the original readers of Hebrews, Moses represented so much more than just a historical figure. If anything, he represented an entire ideology and worldview by which they lived their lives. In this sermon we explore how the writer challenges that notion and we see that in the end equation Jesus ought to sit above and critique every worldview or ideology we might engage with or come across.
