We live in a day and age when no matter where you turn, media outlets and individuals are constantly making up or exaggerating stories in order to advance their own personal agendas. How do we know that the writers of the New Testament weren’t doing just that? Can we be sure that what the New Testament tells us about Jesus is what actually happened 2000 years ago in Palestine? As it turns out, we can, and in this lesson and in following lessons, we’re going to examine some ways that we can know that to be true.
What a blessing for God’s people to know that He cares for us. Jesus assures us of God’s care in the Sermon on the Mount, and throughout Scripture there are multiple examples of God looking after his people.
We serve a great God who has given us ample reason to come to him (Heb. 10:19-25). He also wants us to encourage one another, since we all know that a day is coming for which we must be prepared. Judgement Day is real, and we must be ready for it.
A brief review of the previous few weeks of study, considering the evidence for God and where that leaves us with regard to which world religions could possibly be true.
Does coming to worship really matter? Whatever you may believe, God has certainly commanded it (Heb. 10:25), but he has also given us good reasons to want to gather for worship (Heb. 10:19-21). He gave us confidence to come before his throne through our Great High Priest Jesus Christ, who is the subject of our study for today.
As we deal with our friends, neighbors, and co-workers, we will inevitably come across people who do not believe that God exists. Some will ask us why we still believe. Over the past couple of weeks we have looked at answers we can give to that question, and in this lesson we look at a third, The Moral Argument for the Existence of God.
We talk a lot about church attendance. We ought to know how important it is for Christians to gather together for worship. But it’s so much more than putting bodies in the seats. It is important that we understand that God has given us good reasons for wanting to come and worship Him. It’s all based in what He has done for us through His Son, Jesus Christ.
