Sermon Series : Hebrews

The epistle to the Hebrews is a powerful encouragement to remain firmly attached to Jesus Christ whatever the life circumstances we go through. To abandon this goal would be folly. Indeed, Jesus is superior to all people, to all beliefs and He is never overtaken by circumstances. He is both glorious and powerful while being human. Has He not demonstrated this by the salvation He has purchased for mankind?

Hebrews 11 :20-29 -Faith better than a royal life

Faith leads us to live now and concretely for the certain things promised by God that we do not yet see. And that we won't necessarily see in our lifetime. This is seen by putting God first in our daily lives. Joseph and Moses had this habit. We still talk about them now. On the other hand, we have no echo of those who prioritized the usual things of life... And you, is God's objective for your life a truly visible priority in your life? Your faith pushes you to do what, concretely?

Hebrews 11:31 -Be predisposed to living faith in God?

“You have faith”. How many times have I heard this phrase to cut short all thoughts about God. As if there were some who were predisposed and some who were excused. Today's text proves us otherwise. Our “heroine” was a foreigner, a prostitute, a traitor, a liar, a dissembler, knowing no commandment of the Lord, but the little she was able to grasp pushed her to believe and act to the point that she entered in the history of humanity...

Hebrews 11:30 – Enduring faith in the face of the insurmountable  

Faith is not abstract. Religious Many examples to which the author of the epistle to the Hebrews refers show that those who preceded us trusted God for very concrete things and they were not disappointed. They trusted by relying on God's advice and with constant faith, even if they did not see all the expected results...

Hebrews 11 :8-19 -Proud of which passport?

This question (that of the passport) is a good indicator of our life of faith. Indeed, active, obedient faith, confident in the fidelity of God, leads us out of our comfort zone, our security, our planning and deep attachments to discover the essential. Abraham is the quintessential example of this aspect of faith. Is it inspiring for our lives?

Hebrews 11:1-7 -Faith: act now according to the Lord

All humans live with a lot of faith. It is impossible to live without trust, without faith. The central question is not so much faith, but in whom or what we place it… What does this faith impel us to do? The great visionaries, entrepreneurs of humanity believed in their ideas, their projects and sometimes without seeing the outcome during their lifetime. And we, our faith, do we place it in whom? What is she pushing us to do now?

Hebrews #7: Nothing profitable apart from Christ

Several profiles of people in the readers of the epistle to the Hebrews. Followers of Christ encouraged to a life of persevering faith. Other people have heard, experienced congregational life, and yet they have not grasped salvation through Christ. From what we understand, some are tempted by a return to Judaism (and some have already done so) and this sows trouble among those who learn the gospel, and even believers. To all these people it is emphasized that there is nothing better or profitable to hope for apart from Jesus. The best is ahead by relying totally on Christ and having the salvation He has in store for us.

Hebrews #4: To be king? While Jesus introduces you to the greatest!  

Jesus has no equivalent in the link he makes between God and humanity. In the past, this role was entrusted to priests who were also subject to human weakness. Jesus transcends all human pitfalls and ensures an incomparable bond with God. At the Throne of Grace. It is thus a new reason to attach us even more intensely to what He acquired for us and to pay no attention to all that is without interest.

Hebrews #3: Faith in Christ challenges reveal the follower’s true believer

The journey of the Hebrews for 40 years in the desert revealed those who were really attached to God and those who did not adhere (yet they heard everything and lived like the others). It is the same for the recipients of the epistle to the Hebrews: the circumstances they go through reveal those who are attached to Christ and those who follow the movement and ask themselves the question if Judaism was not better... And we , do the challenges on faith in Christ reveal if we are true believers or if we have followed the movement, the atmosphere, the friends, the family, the tradition?

Hebrews #2: No religion can save you… only Jesus does!

As far as my imagination goes thinking of Jesus, He is far above, He has no equal but God, no heavenly and human created being can compete... Why all this? Important reminder: community with the temptation to say that Judaism was still better...

God who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Hebrews 2:14-15

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

Hebrews 3:12-14

Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end;

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

Hebrews 9:11-12

But Christ being come a high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
