Why did the Messiah Become Flesh?
The stumbling block keeping many Jews in the first century from believing that Jesus was the Messiah, was that He was so ordinary. What the writer of Hebrews does for us in the second half of chapter two, is to tell us why the Messiah had to be made like us. Join us to learn how God’s plan for salvation was from eternity past.
Why We Drift
The great threat to the son or daughter of God is not suddenly finding ourselves in the middle of a moral collapse, but rather finding ourselves slowly drifting from our passion for Christ. The opening verses of Hebrews chapter two are valuable, for they tell us why we drift and how to cure it. Join us in our study as we discover why we are prone to wander from the God who loves us.
Expectations and Discipleship
Many followers of Christ have had their walk with Christ derailed by painful experiences that have come into their lives. It is easy in those moments to make decisions that are rooted in emotion rather than truth and logic. Frequently those emotions will ultimately take us away from the will of God. Join us as we finish chapter one of Hebrews, to learn how to correct our perspectives.
Superiority of Christ
As we begin a new study in the book of Hebrews, we are dealing with Christians that have allowed their priorities to get out of order. Pressure and disappointment were causing some to turn their attention and devotion away from Christ towards other things. The writer of Hebrews begins to lay out how Christ is better than anything that a religious world has to offer. Join us as we receive insight concerning the superiority of Christ.
Called to do the Difficult
Salvation is free, obedience is difficult. Over the course of our lives, there will be times where God’s clear calling will be to do the hard thing. Join us in Philemon as we find the story of the Apostle Paul encouraging two brothers in Christ to do the difficult thing, in order that Christ would be glorified.
