This is the purpose of the book of Hebrews: that we might grow older and more mature as followers of Christ and as a result we see our Lord as much bigger than we did before. Come with us on this journey through the book of Hebrews and lets see the GREATNESS of Jesus. He is superior to everything. Nothing in all of creation is more important or GREATER or above Him.
Jesus is greater than broken promises – And the author of Hebrews—wants us to have confidence that God is a promise keeper—and He has better things for you
Things that accompany salvation – I’m confident – he said – your going to make it – your going to go on to maturity --- your going to inherit the promises……
I’m convinced that God is speaking to you about – HOPE – Hope for your country Hope for your family Hope for your job situation Hope for an answer to this mess in our world - So – today – we’re going to talk about being anchored in HOPE --- Because Jesus is greater than our uncertainty
This is where you say – religion doesn’t work Look at this – they’re going to all this trouble – wearing the right clothes – showing up at the right time – washing themselves – bringing the right animals for sacrifice – doing everything like their supposed to- but none of it was able to clear the conscience of the worshiper
There’s no time to waste --- You and I should be living like God is doing what we’re believing and expecting for – WHY? – because you have a divine appointment with God -Everyone dies – Everyone dies once – Everyone dies on time – And Everyone will stand before God and give an account…………….
It’s good to remember when we’re looking at a chapter like this – filled with great people – we need to remind ourselves that they are not perfect – and in spite of their shortcomings – God still uses them – and the Bible doesn’t hide the failures of great people
Jesus said – to abide in Him—and He would abide in us – it’s the same word – TO CONTINUE - persevere – continue in love….. ‘ This is a love that loves to love – “continue” – “keep it up” – “don’t stop” – And Jesus doesn’t give us any wiggle room on this
