Hope

Deep themes permeate this section of Hebrews: old covenants, new covenants, relationship, religion, conscience, and more. As a church, we pray that texts like this will transform your view of Jesus’ work on your behalf and help unlock a brighter future with Him.

A proper view of God, that glimpses His Glory and moves to respond appropriately, is paramount for all worship. It also is the root of our good works from grace-driven effort. This week we dig deep into Isaiah 45 an amazing chapter that reveals much about God’s character and the nature of His work.

As the Advent season kicks off, our study through the book of Hebrews takes an appropriate and timely focus on HOPE. So much more than a warm-and-fuzzy idea, so much more than a self-help-strategy, we need a hope that provides a “sure and steadfast” refuge. This hope exists in Jesus!

As we come to the close of Hebrews chapter 6, we see the theme of the passage dovetail well with our 2019 Orphan Care Sunday. Hear the Father’s Voice and His Heart as He promises good things over His people. Let Jesus be your hope and let that anchor your soul.

After some intense words, the author of Hebrews speaks more directly to the recipients of the letter who are believing in Jesus. He calls them “beloved” and speaks of good things that he sees for them. This week, we glean some truths from this short passage that can help concrete us in faith and community.
