A Perfect and Permanent Intercessor

September 13, 2020 | Series: Hebrews. Scripture: Hebrews. Speakers: Pastor Bob Ray.

Hebrews 7:1-28

We have a perfect High Priest who offered the perfect sacrifice of Himself so that all who believe can be counted perfect through Him. There is none like Him. Jesus is better than all others. Jesus is superior to the Old Testament religion of Israel. Jesus is superior to all other religious systems and all other priestly castes. Jesus is better, greater, and higher. Jesus is the only way to God. Jesus can save completely those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to intercede for them. This should cause us to believe in Jesus following Him as Lord and then seek to draw near to God daily through Him. Jesus Christ alone makes possible the reconciliation of sinful man and Holy God.

Isaiah 6

In these trying times, we are faced with suffering of many sorts.  Yet, even today, the prophet Isaiah’s encounter with God is instrumental for the Lord’s redeemed who likewise suffer along with the lost around them in any age.

Living as Exiles

August 9, 2020 | Series: Special. Scripture: Jeremiah. Speakers: Jason Donaldson.

Jeremiah 29:1-14

Over 2,500 years ago, God’s people were uprooted and sent into exile, to live among a hostile pagan culture.  God did not leave them without instruction, however, sending word through the prophet Jeremiah on how they were to live as his people in exile.  Today, every assembly of believers is an outpost embedded in a pagan culture, and so Jeremiah’s message stands to guide us in how to live during the years of our sojourning.

God’s Greatness Made Known, Even in Apostasy

August 2, 2020 | Series: Special. Scripture: John. Speakers: Jason Donaldson.

John 13:21-31

Sensational “deconversion stories” make the news, and seemingly threaten to undermine the faith.  The Bible teaches us better than that.  Certainly, it warns us to expect it and to guard against it.  But it also shows us how great our God is, and how he glorifies himself even in the most egregious example of apostasy in history.
