  • Nov 27, 2022Sermon: The Joy Set Before Us

    Sermon: The Joy Set Before Us
    Hebrews 12.1-3: Christmas is a season of joy - joy anticipated and joy realized. It leads us to consider what it takes to pursue joy. Jesus offers a way through him, who "for the joy set before him, endured the cross and scorned its shame." Shame robs joy now and the prospect of joy for the future. At the cross, Jesus takes our shame and gives us opportunity to be free from its insidious destruction of our soul. He calls us out of the isolation that shame keeps us in to find freedom in him. He opens us up to a greater freedom of the soul that pursues the joy set before us.

    Sermon: What He Offered
    Hebrews 8: Are we disturbed enough by our lack of interest in God, relying on the things of this earth to give us peace only he can fulfill? May God disturb us to a holy discontent that draws us to him and his gift of Jesus Christ, our true High Priest. What he offered was his life to save us, that we might not be destroyed by our sin. Praise God!

    Sermon: A New Covenant
    Hebrews 7.20-28: Jesus Christ is a priest forever, meaning his sacrifice is a completion of the Jewish daily sacrifices. This truth frames our life, meaning that our daily life is infused with the eternal focus and purpose. With confidence because of Christ's work, we move forward to cleansing, truth, reconciliation, and forgiveness. We walk by faith and not by sight, knowing that Christ is interceding daily on our behalf.

    Sermon: A Forever High Priest
    Hebrews 7.1-19: While God gave Israel the priest-led sacrificial system for a purpose, it itself could not fulfill what was completely needed. It was given to establish a pattern that anticipated a coming perfect sacrifice for atonement. This is Christ and it is in him that we now can fully draw near to God, as God has drawn near to us.

    Sermon: A King & Priest to Save Us
    Hebrews 7.1-10: Our focus is on Jesus' identity as a priestly-king, one who brings external and internal salvation. In him, righteousness and peace are enacted within his kingdom and within our souls. He is the only one who can bring righteousness and peace in this way. He is the only hope for the world.

    Sermon: A Mysterious Figure that Illumines
    Genesis 14: We introduce ourselves to the mysterious figure of Melchizedek. He plays an illuminating role in Abram's life and is a precursor to Christ. In his mystery, things make greater sense. He is a signal for Christ, the one in whom all mystery is fulfilled and illuminated that we might know life.

    Sermon: Seek Peace & Pursue It
    Psalm 34: As children of the coming Kingdom, we are called to be people who seek peace and pursue it. As we encounter a world bent on self-destruction, we are called to the priestly task of prayer - calling out for mercy and God's sovereignty to bring peace upon our warring world.

    Sermon: Anchored in the Storm
    Hebrews 6.4-20: Though all around challenges present to our faith, we are encouraged to stay strong, to live faithfully, and be fruitful. All this not based on the foundation of our efforts and strength, but upon God's irrefutable promises toward us in Christ. In Christ, we have an anchor keeping us secure, an anchor held firm in the most secure place of all - the inner sanctum of the presence of God.
