Getting Ready for Sunday 12/4

THIS SUNDAY- Hebrews 11:32-40

As we conclude chapter eleven this week, we will look at the final examples of faithful living through the lens of hope.

Living by faith is living a hopeful life.

We understand hope as a confident expectation of the unseen or unrealized. With that definition, it is easy to see the connection between faith and hope.


CONSIDER/MEDITATE AS YOU READ
  • As you read through Hebrews 11:32-40, consider the outcome of living by faith. What are the results?

  • Think about the way you view the world. Think about how you see yourself interacting and engaging with the world around you. Do you operate in the hope of Christ's return? Do you engage with the world with the cross of Christ in the back of your mind?

ADDITIONAL PASSAGES TO READ
  • 1 Peter 1:13-25 (paying close attention to hope in verse 13)

  • Romans 12:12 - Thinking about hope-filled living

  • Reviewing the idea of "perfection" or "being made perfect" as it appears in Hebrews - Hebrews 2:10, 5:8-9, 7:18-19, 9:8-10, 10:1-4, 10:12-14, 11:39-40


(REMINDER) THEMES OF HEBREWS

Christ is better. We will see that Christ is better than angels, Moses, and Israel. He is the better high priest, sacrifice, mediator, and more. This theme will be a major part of Sunday morning sermons, focusing on the superiority of Jesus Christ.


Continuity of the Old and New Testaments. The New Testament is not a redo of the Old but a continuation of the Old. You will see many references to Old Testament passages throughout the book of Hebrews. Often, these references will help you better understand Jesus, the Gospel, and the New Covenant.


Warning passages What is the warning? Don't miss Jesus! Pay attention to His message! Do not neglect Him! Do not be deceived by sin! Hold fast! Strive to enter His rest! Do not grow weary, and many more. The warnings are great because Christ is superior, the Son of God, the only way into the House of God.

SONGS WE ARE LEARNING







BE IN PRAYER

  • as we celebrate the first and second advent of Jesus Christ, ask the Lord to prepare your hearts. Ask the Lord to show you the beauties of Christ.

  • In our evenings, we are talking about reformation and revival. Let us prayerfully ask the Lord how we might need reformation and repentance. Let us ask the Lord that he would mercifully bring revival to our congregation.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
