Hebrews 12: Discipline and Endurance

Image
The author of Hebrews continues the racing and training metaphor by introducing the imagery of God as a father who disciplines his children, correcting them and growing them to be more like him. We are to grow in endurance as we grow in faith. As we grow, we will flatten the path for ourselves to walk with God and for others to join us. This is for our joy and for God's glory.

Hebrews 12: Run

Image
The author of Hebrews has spent the entire letter reminding the readers of God's faithfulness for generation after generation, and in Hebrews 12, we see the metaphor of a crowd gathering to watch the current generation run, and finish, their race. Since everything written before is true, we fix our eyes on the author of that truth (Jesus), and run the race set before us, we shed the weight of sin because of God's grace, and we trust in him to guide us and keep us until we reach the completion.

Hebrews 10: Belong

Image
Have you ever been in a place that you felt like you belonged? Have you ever been in a place where you felt like you didn't belong? What if you could walk with confidence into the presence of God, and not just feel like you belonged, but know that you belonged? Hebrews has been a wonderful repetition of how to belong in the presence of God and how to walk with God, and this week we took a look at the application of what the author of Hebrews was writing about in the life of Jesus during an encounter in Mark 10. Salvation is a gift that is received, not something that we earn, and the reality is that God makes it possible, provides that gift for us, and sustains it with us and through us.

Easter Service (4-4-21)

Image
His sheep hear his voice and they follow where he leads, and he knows their names. This is the beautiful relationship between Creator and creation and savior and those who he has come to save. All it took was Jesus speaking the name of Mary for Mary to know her friend and savior had risen. Her sorrow turned to joy in an instant, and she knew that Jesus was alive. If you want to follow along with the text for this message, we were in John 20 .

Hebrews 9: Once Is Enough

Image
This week we're covering chapter nine of Hebrews .  Hebrews 9 covers the reality that the old covenant required repeated sacrifices for sin, but did nothing to cleanse the heart and restore lasting confidence in salvation. It was only a shadow of the lasting salvation that Jesus offers. Jesus coming as the mediator and savior for his creation, restoring creation to the creator, completed his work through the cross and then the resurrection. We will be having an earlier than normal Easter service that will begin Easter Sunday at 9:00AM. You are welcome to join us for our live service, otherwise, please join us via Zoom by emailing us here and requesting the link .

Hebrews 8: The Main Point

Image
This week we're in chapter 8 of Hebrews . The author continues to build on the dynamic of a high priest who brings salvation to people. We have exactly that high priest in Jesus. God has provided a way back to himself through himself and for us.  We're meeting in person every Sunday at 10:30am at Blomkest Baptist Church. If you're reading this, you're invited to join us and worship with us. Click here for directions to our church . If you have any questions or a prayer request, click here . 

Hebrews 7: A Better Hope

Image
In the seventh chapter of Hebrews, the writer compares Jesus to the high priest for Abraham named Melchizedek. The writer does this so that his people can remember and understand better what Jesus has done for them and the importance of Jesus compared to even the historical importance of other high priests throughout history. Jesus is different. His grace saves where the law only points out the need for a savior.  Follow along in Hebrews 7 by clicking here. Email us a prayer request or connect with us by clicking here.
