Let us live a life of worship, not turning back, but pressing on together with endurance.
Listen to the latest sermons from New City Church:
How does the perfect sacriﬁce of Jesus apply to our sanctiﬁcation? How do these realities get us oﬀ the soul deadening treadmill of religion? How can these texts be a comfort when we do sin? What does this mean for our service to God’s good world?
The writer of Hebrews shows how Jesus’ ministry has shifted the understanding of the covenants made with God’s people in the past. How are we to understand approaching and worshiping God after Jesus’ exaltation?
In all things... at all times... and in all ways... preach the Word.
How does the Better Priest, Jesus, allow for us to approach God boldly in worship and prayer and life? What does Jesus’ perfect obedience mean for our own sanctiﬁcation? Jesus as a Better Priest has many implications for our lives in the world.
How do we hear God from the Scriptures and in all of life? How do we not close God oﬀ from his leadings and promptings?
How do you avoid spiritual drift in your walk with God? Why is encouragement so important to community health and life?
The writer of Hebrews is saying something new for a predominantly Jewish audience. The idea of God becoming a man, and moving into the neighborhood, even saying he’s our brother is about relating. We don’t worship and follow a cold and removed deity. We serve a living God who took on ﬂesh and understands our every need. How can Brother Jesus help us in our temptations? How does knowing Jesus is the Founder/Pioneer of our faith comfort us day to day?
God is not silent and continues to speak through his Son, Jesus Christ, who’s better than the prophets, the Jesus who creates and holds all things together, and is redeeming all things. God is not silent, and never has been.
How does the person and work of Jesus make him the light of the world? How are we to live as lights in a dark world?
Do I accept Jesus on his terms or mine?
Since Christians are called to lay down their lives and suffer for Christ's sake, how we serve other believers (the Church/His Bride) is a clear representation of our faithfulness.
If the Master returned today, what would he say about the way you've used what he gave you?
Jesus is our Savior, but also our example. When we see the way he sacrificed himself in love, we see the suffering to all Christians are called.
Before we can rightly serve Christ through the Church, we need to be clear on what our mission is.
