Are We In Danger?

by

 Hebrews 6:1-8 There was/is a popular evangelistic tract commonly known as the Four Spiritual Laws. The first spiritual law in the tract is, “God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.” Certainly, that is a universally true statement – for the unbeliever and the believer alike. So let me get very personal, […]

How Are We Doing In Our Spiritual Life?

by

Hebrews 5:11-14   Sunday we will celebrate the birth of our nation, the day we announced our intention to be independent from Britain. The following are some familiar quotes: “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on […]

Better Than Google, YouTube, or Wikipedia

by

Hebrews 5:1-10   We live in a complex world. But we also live in an information age. We have many resources at our fingertips. How do I replace the oxygen sensor on my car? YouTube probably has a video. How do I set my WiFi router? Google can help. What were the details of that […]

Does Spiritual Weakness Spell Spiritual Ruin?

by

Hebrews 4:1-16 It has often been said that baseball is the only game that you can fail at 70% of the time and still be considered very good. According to my research, as of June 8, 2021, there were 181 position players in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Including pitchers, a total of 264 are […]

Do I Have A Heart For Worship

by

Hebrews 3:7-19 What is required for worship? What is a heart of worship? What is the heart of worship? Well, I suppose that doctrinal dissertations have been and will be written about these subjects. Of course, songs have and will be, also. Tim Hughes’ “Here I Am to Worship” is one: So here I am […]

Focus

by

Hebrews 3:1-6 As we prepare for this Memorial Day weekend let us remember those who sacrificed for our freedoms in this nation. Men and women gave their lives so that we could live ours as free people. It is so easy to focus on the “beginning of summer” rather than what the holiday is really […]

Delayed Gratification

by

Hebrews 2:5-18 Sometimes life seems more than we can cope with. Sickness, death, the political situation, finances, and a thousand other things can all overwhelm us at times. Life just is not fair. Have you ever felt that way? Sure, we all have. Asaph did and he wrote about it in Psalm 73: Truly God […]

First Warning

by

Hebrews 2:1-4 Famous words: “I will start saving next year when things are not so tight.” Saving for the future is always difficult, especially if every penny seems to be needed for today – a bigger house with more bedrooms and another bathroom for the growing family. Perhaps you have heard of the concept of […]

God’s Kingly Son

by

Hebrews 1:5-14 Our AWANA lesson last week was titled “Grace to Persevere.” In our discussion a couple of the questions that came up were: 1) Why do we give up when doing hard things? and 2) What motivates us or encourages us when we do persevere in doing something hard? It is interesting to consider. […]

The Son: King & Priest

by

Hebrews Introduction, 1:1-4   The world is a difficult place. There are disappointments, hardships, and discouragements. Things do not go as we planned or hoped. Life in this world is not fair. As our society moves further away from God, it will continue to crumble unless there is a turning back to God. Paul’s letter […]
