The Day Drawing Near – Matthew 24:36-44 (sermon audio)

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.

Our Great High Priest – Hebrews 4:14-16 (sermon audio)

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.

Confidence Before His Throne – Hebrews 4:14-16, 10:19-26 (sermon audio)

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.

I’ll Live For Him Who Died for Me – Hebrews 10:19-31 (sermon audio)

On Easter Sunday, many are mindful of the wonderful gift that God has given us in Christ. Since we have been given such a gift, we ought to respond accordingly.  As we study Hebrews 10 together, we will work to understand what we should do in response to such an indescribable gift.

The Promise of Atonement – Hebrews 9-10; Leviticus 16

Perhaps no day on the Jewish calendar was more important that the Day of Atonement.  It was a day which the book of Leviticus centers around.  And yet, it was not sufficient to fully take care of mankind’s sin problem.  That’s why Christ came, to be our sacrifice.  The Lamb of God came to take away the sin of the world.

Well, this is my first attempt at a podcast connected with the blog here.  I’m still trying to figure all of this stuff out, so hopefully this will get better in time.  Click the download link above, which should take you to the proper place to listen to this episode.  Once there, open your Bible and click play.

Abraham was tested.  We know that without a doubt.  How was he tested?  Why is he included in the Hebrews 11 hall of faith.  Using those passages we’re going to look at three tests to Abraham’s faith, and how Christians living in 2014 can learn from them to live lives that are pleasing to our God.
