Listen as Pastor Steve teaches on the doubts we have, how the author of Hebrews provides a answers to our doubts, and that Jesus Christ is the One who provides us the comfort and guarantee that our doubts are answered, because Jesus is the King of Righteousness and the King of Peace and the King of Eternity.
Listen and learn about:
The Promise of Rest – this stands today – God has a place for our relaxation, where we are home both physically and spiritually.
The Prevention of Rest – it is our unbelief in God’s Word, which is still active and living. God keeps His promise to us as He did for the Hebrews, to provide that home.
Entering into Rest – Jesus tells us in Matthew 11:28.. “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”. The temporal things of this world will fade away, but Jesus will provide that eternal rest. Take Him up on His invitation – accept and believe in Him.
Listen as we continue in Hebrews: The Supremacy of Christ. Learn that:
Jesus is superior because he’s the builder of God’s house.
Jesus is superior because he’s a son not a servant
Jesus is superior because he leads a new exodus from sin
