Hebrews 5:5-10 English Standard Version So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest, but was appointed by him who said to him, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”; as he says also in another place, “You are a priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek.” In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death,…
Hebrews 4:14-5:6 English Standard Version Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find…
Hebrews 4:1-13 English Standard Version (ESV) Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us fear lest any of you should seem to have failed to reach it. For good news came to us just as to them, but the message they heard did not benefit them, because they were not united by faith with those who listened. For we who have believed enter that rest, as he has said, “As I swore in my wrath, ‘They…
Hebrews 3:6-19 (ESV) but Christ is faithful over God’s house as a son. And we are his house, if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope. Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness, where your fathers put me to the test and saw my works for forty years. Therefore I was provoked with…
Todd Cravens – March 6, 2018 The author of Hebrews makes a breathtaking claim. He writes, “For we who have believed enter [God’s] rest” (Heb. 4:3). This means there is some sense in which those who have believed in Jesus for salvation presently enter into his rest. Believers enter his rest today, but how and in what way? In the March 4 sermon, I suggested that part of the meaning of this sentence is that believers enter the rest of God, here and now,…
She came to me after the sermon with tears in her eyes. “Thank you for that message. I know that saving faith is an enduring faith, but what worries me is the fear that if I were physically persecuted for my faith in Jesus, I might deny him.” She had rightly gotten the main point of last week’s sermon. The point was that Jesus is the builder of our faith and the only kind of faith that he builds in…
Todd Cravens 15 February 2018 This past Wednesday evening 40 of us gathered in the sanctuary to kickoff a unique season of prayer. It was Ash Wednesday, which begins the season of Lent, the forty-day period (not counting Sunday’s) prior to Easter. The Lenten season focuses our attention forward to the time-altering, soul-saving, Satan-defeating, death-destroying victory that Jesus accomplished at Easter. If the Lenten season for you brings with it the bad baggage of painful penance and the denial of things that bring you…
