Moving to Maturity -1.19.20

Hebrews 5:11-6:3 (NIV) 11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. 12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not…

Clinging to the Faith – 1.5.2020

Hebrews 4:14-16 (NIV) 14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven,[a]Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16 Let us then approach God’s throne…

Disciples who make Disciples – 12.29.19

Matthew 28:18-20  (NIV) 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Understanding Jesus – 12.15.19

Isaiah 52:13-53:12  (NIV) 13 See, my servant will act wisely[a];    he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.14 Just as there were many who were appalled at him[b]—    his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being    and his form marred beyond human likeness—15 so he will sprinkle many nations,[c]    and kings will shut their mouths because of…

Listening to the Word of God – 12.8.19

Hebrews 4:12-13 (NIV) 12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword,it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

Resting with God – 12.1.19

Hebrews 4:1-11 (NIV) 4 Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it. 2 For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed.[a]3 Now we who have believed…

Jesus and Moses – 11.17.19

Hebrews 3:1-6  (NIV) 3 Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. 2 He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house. 3 Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater…

The Reason for Faith – 10.27.19

Hebrews 2:5-9 (NIV) 5 It is not to angels that he has subjected the world to come, about which we are speaking.6 But there is a place where someone has testified: “What is mankind that you are mindful of them,    a son of man that you care for him?7 You made them a little[a] lower than the angels;    you crowned them with glory and honor8     and put everything under…

Committed to the Gospel – 10.20.19

Hebrews 1:4-2  (NIV) 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs. 5 For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son;    today I have become your Father”[a]? Or again, “I will be his Father,    and he will be my Son”[b]? 6 And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God’s…

Christ: The Ultimate Messenger 10.13.19

Hebrews 1:1-4  (NIV) 1 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son,whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. 3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his…

The Fear of the Lord – 9.29.19

Job 38-41 (NIV) 38 Then the Lord spoke to Job out of the storm. He said: 2 “Who is this that obscures my plans    with words without knowledge?3 Brace yourself like a man;    I will question you,    and you shall answer me. 4 “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?    Tell me, if you understand.5 Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!    Who stretched…

Wisdom for Trials – 9.15.19

Job 28 (NIV) 28 There is a mine for silver    and a place where gold is refined.2 Iron is taken from the earth,    and copper is smelted from ore.3 Mortals put an end to the darkness;    they search out the farthest recesses    for ore in the blackest darkness.4 Far from human dwellings they cut a shaft,    in places untouched by human feet;    far from other people they…
