Grace And Works
Hebrews 10:11-18 • September 1, 2019 • Michael McCracken
It is crucially important that we understand the relationship between grace and works. The work of Christ as the once and for all sacrifice for sins helps us to understand the rightful place of our works as it pertains to salvation. From this text we will see that grace has never been more amazing!
Considering The Covenants
Hebrews 10:1-10 • May 26, 2019 • Jon Paul Dennison
If the Law of Moses only had a shadow of good things, then what has the true form? If sins weren’t removed by the blood of bulls and goats, what were they removed by? If God didn’t take pleasure in sacrifices and offerings, what does he take pleasure in?
Considering Waiting (In The Finished Work Of Christ)
Hebrews 9:23-28 • May 19, 2019 • Michael McCracken
Waiting is not as much of a call to action as it is a call to a particular posture of life. This week we will spend time considering the posture of one who is eagerly waiting for His triumphant return.
Considering The Blood
Hebrews 9:15-22 • May 12, 2019 • Michael McCracken
The blood, and all that surrounds it, forces us to think deeply about what was needed and what was accomplished at the cross. In this sermon we will consider the implications of the reality that forgiveness isn’t the purpose but only the necessary means to the Father’s plan.
Considering The Holiness Of God
Hebrews 9:1-10 • April 28, 2019 • Michael McCracken
The writer begins to make the case for Christ by considering how the tabernacle and all it represented points to Christ. All of this coincides with the holiness of God helping us understand the insufficiency of the earthly priests and their ceremonies.
The New Covenant, Pt. 2
Hebrews 8:10-13 • April 14, 2019 • Michael McCracken
The new covenant brought on by the blood of Christ is superior to the old because it was enacted on better promises. How does it effect the way we think about Christianity and salvation when we think about it through the lens of God’s resolve to make a certain people “His people”?
The New Covenant, Pt. 1
Hebrews 8:7-9 • April 7, 2019 • Michael McCracken
In order to have a great appreciation of the New Covenant under which we reside we will look at the covenant that God made with Moses on Mt. Sinai. In the process we will see that God has always been in gracious, merciful pursuit of relationship with His people.
The Shadow Of Jesus, Pt. 4
Hebrews 8:1-7 • March 31, 2019 • Michael McCracken
There are things that are true and then there is the truth about things. Jesus gives us a category for the truth that genuinely sets free and a frame of reference for walking through this broken world of half truths and illusions of grandeur.
