Hebrews Part 15: Matchbox car Christianity

Text: Hebrews Chapter 8.

In this section of Hebrews, the three themes of Sanctuary, Sacrifice and Covenant are explored. We can use this text as a reminder to watch out for our tendency towards “matchbox car Christianity”, where we get attached to replicas instead of having faith in the real, immaterial truth.

Hebrews Part 14: Freedom

Text: Hebrews Chapter 7.

What do we do with our freedom? Being free means choosing who to trust. In a world where everything is temporary and must eventually be replaced, we can always look to Jesus. This High Priest, who lives to make intercession for us, will never become sinful and will never need replacing.

Easter 2017

As we celebrate the resurrection of Christ, we reflect on the darkness and the light in our lives. Evil exists in each of us and in the world around us, but today we are reminded that God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.

Hebrews Part 13: Doubt and Certainty

Text: Hebrews Chapter 6.

Are God’s promises too good to be true? We shouldn’t deny the existence of doubt. Rather than waiting for God to prove himself to us, we can look for certainty in the consistency of His character.

Hebrews Part 12: Living Hope

Text: Hebrews Chapter 6.

We can often get lost in the details or start going through the motions, but getting past this leads us to mature Christian living based on hope in God.
