The Hebrew followers of Christ were being pulled into the direction of the Old Covenant. Which the writer of Hebrews makes it very clear was an inferior Covenant. It was temporary, symbolic, and couldn’t make the worshipper of God complete. Today the follower of Christ is tempted on all sides by those who are offering spiritual experiences that only serve to remove our attention off of the finished work of Christ. We will be encouraged in Hebrews chapter nine to stick with simple faith in the Son of God who is superior all religious experiences.
Don’t Surrender the Greater for the Lesser

Superiority of Christ • October 21, 2018 • Paul Mowery
As we begin a new study in the book of Hebrews, we are dealing with Christians that have allowed their priorities to get out of order. Pressure and disappointment were causing some to turn their attention and devotion away from Christ towards other things. The writer of Hebrews begins to lay out how Christ is better than anything that a religious world has to offer. Join us as we receive insight concerning the superiority of Christ.
Expectations and Discipleship • October 28, 2018 • Paul Mowery
Many followers of Christ have had their walk with Christ derailed by painful experiences that have come into their lives. It is easy in those moments to make decisions that are rooted in emotion rather than truth and logic. Frequently those emotions will ultimately take us away from the will of God. Join us as we finish chapter one of Hebrews, to learn how to correct our perspectives.
Why We Drift • November 4, 2018 • Paul Mowery
The great threat to the son or daughter of God is not suddenly finding ourselves in the middle of a moral collapse, but rather finding ourselves slowly drifting from our passion for Christ. The opening verses of Hebrews chapter two are valuable, for they tell us why we drift and how to cure it. Join us in our study as we discover why we are prone to wander from the God who loves us.
