    Sermon: The Lowly High Priest
    Hebrews 4.14-5.10: We long for a representative to bring our needs to the center of power, justice, and righteousness. Who will speak for us and who will bring back a word of mercy, guidance, and grace? We long for a faithful priest - an intermediary. We must look to Jesus.

    Sermon: The Generative & Penetrative Word
    Hebrews 4.12-16: If the word is sharper than any double-edged sword, it holds both a threat and hope. If we allow Christ and the Spirit to do their generative work on us, the word is a surgical instrument, opening our souls unhealth to healing, our incompleteness to wholeness. This is an initial threat, but we are called to trust the great surgeon, who alone knows how to heal and operate on the human soul.

    Sermon: The Rest We Long For
    Hebrews 4.1-11: How do we find rest? Not merely for the night, but true rest where the incompleteness of our labors doesn't haunt us. How do we get to the end and have the ability to be at peace with what our life has been? Can it come through our own works, our own accomplishments? No. Only through the completeness of Jesus and his work. Through his work of faithful obedience, we are gifted eternal rest. And by grace, our insufficient work is completed, reconciled, and transformed to eternal beauty. But it is all about him, not us. To his glory and not to our own.

    Sermon: Soft Hearts of Belief
    Hebrews 3.7-19: God speaks so that we might hear and thrive. The temptation is to not listen, to allow our hearts to be hardened. Our hearts become hard when we see the rewards of this life as more desirable than the rewards of eternity. It takes disciplined attention to God's grace, to his kingdom, to keep us on the path of faith. We must encourage each other in this so that none will give up on the path.

    Sermon: Jesus > Moses
    Hebrews 3.1-6: To better recognize the glory of Jesus, we need to recognize the glory of Moses. Within the biblical narrative, none is higher than Moses, except Jesus that is.

    Sermon: A True Brother
    Hebrews 2.10-18: The writer of Hebrews guides us to see Jesus in the role of true brother, who fulfills the role of securing the Father's family by sacrificing himself. He becomes like us so we can be a part of a redeemed family. It is a great comfort to know Jesus as our brother.

    Sermon: Shared in Our Humanity
    Hebrews 2.5-18: The path to life, to restoration, to glory is through Jesus. This calls us to deny ourselves and follow him and to embrace a path of denial in this life. Jesus came to know our lot and to be the perfect Savior for us. Through him, we are freed from death and gain the hope of everlasting life and glory.

    Sermon: We See Jesus – Part 2
    Hebrews 2.5-9: Though we as mankind continue to try to map ourselves based on distant lights and far away knowledge, the Bible tells of the true light coming close in Jesus Christ who gives us the deep knowledge and light that we seek. It is him that all the lights and angels point to, his truth, his power, his love, his gospel, his kingdom. As the angels long to look into these things, may we not tire of knowing more deeply the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Sermon: We See Jesus – Part I
    Hebrews 2.5-9: In this first part, we consider what it means that "the coming world will not be subject to angels." This background will help us understand the authority of Christ, which we will consider next week. The writer wants to comfort us as Christians though we see the world living in chaos and disorder. We strive on because no matter what we see with our eyes, by faith we see Jesus.
