Don’t Surrender the Greater for the Lesser The Hebrew followers of Christ were being pulled into the direction of the Old Covenant. Which the writer of Hebrews makes it very clear was an inferior Covenant. It was temporary, symbolic, and couldn’t make the worshipper of God complete. Today the follower of Christ is tempted on all sides by those who are offering spiritual experiences that only serve to remove our attention off of the finished work of Christ. We will be encouraged in Hebrews chapter nine to stick with simple faith in the Son of God who is superior all religious experiences.
