Hebrews 6:13-20 (ESV) For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself, saying, “Surely I will bless you and multiply you.” And thus Abraham, having patiently waited, obtained the promise. For people swear by something greater than themselves, and in all their disputes an oath is final for confirmation. So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of…
Hebrews 6:1-12 (ESV) Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, and of instruction about washings, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. And this we will do if God permits. For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have…
Luke 23:32-43 (ESV) Two others, who were criminals, were led away to be put to death with him. And when they came to the place that is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on his right and one on his left. And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” And they cast lots to divide his garments. And the people stood by, watching, but the rulers scoffed at him, saying,…
Hebrews 5:11-14 (ESV) About this we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food, for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. But solid food is for the mature, for those…
23 March 2018 If Jesus is right now seated at the right hand of God (Acts 2:33), presumably “upholding the universe by the word of his power” (Heb. 1:3), then how can he possibly care about the comparatively small issues of my unimportant life? How can the Governor of the universe possibly care that my aging parents require more and more of my time, which is already in short supply? How does the Chief Executive of Creation have time to…
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, by confidently trusting…
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…
There’s a fairly new worship song we have begun to sing entitled “What A Beautiful Name,” put out by Hillsong Worship. It’s a beautiful song and evidently Christians love it. The song has over 100 million views on YouTube. We sang the song for about the fourth time last Sunday. I love the song. It praises the power of the name of Jesus. It declares Jesus as the Word who was present at the beginning of Creation. It proclaims the power of…
