More About this Series

Part 1: A Wandering Heart | Hebrews 1:1-4:13
Jesus is the ultimate prophet who in his very being “is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature” (1:3) who can rekindle A Wandering Heart, deceived by the allure of sin and hardened by challenging circumstances in life (3:7-12). Though we are prone to listen to everything but God’s voice, we are rightly warned that “the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword” able to expose “the thoughts and intentions of the heart” (4:12).

Part 2: The Work of Christ | Hebrews 4:14-10
The Work of Christ is revealed in priestly imagery to emphasize the necessity and sufficiency of his “once-for-all” (9:12; 10:10) sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins. Jesus is the merciful high priest who is able “to sympathize with our weaknesses” (4:15), for in his incarnation he was “made like his brothers in every respect” (2:17) and “in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin” (4:15). His blood shed for us gives us boldness and confidence to “draw near to the throne of grace” (4:16) through praise and prayer.

Part 3: Our Story of Faith | Hebrews 11-13
Jesus is the true king, “seated at the right hand of the throne of God” (12:2) who is able to weave the doubt, discouragement, and disillusionment we experience in a broken world into Our Story of Faith, as we join the “cloud of [faithful] witnesses” (12:1a), “stir[ring] up one another to love and good works” (10:24) and “striving” for peace and holiness (12:14) as we “run with endurance the race that is set before us” (12:b) in joyful expectation and hope that Jesus will one day soon return to usher in a “kingdom that cannot be shaken” (12:27).
