Summary: Wrap up of our Hebrews series

Hebrews – Encouragement for a life of faith

Part 17

“That’s all folks”

Today we are going to wrap up our Hebrews series

As with many of our other sermon series

This one has been quite a ride

When we began this series

I figured we would be here about 6-7 week then move on

But with God’ guidance we have gone a lot deeper

As you know our Sunday morning sermon series

Unlike the Wednesday night’s

Do not go verse by verse



I try to hit the high spots

The key concepts

And we dig a lot deeper in the Round pens

Once again

I encourage you to pray about attending

Discipleship is the key to fulfillment in our Christian life

And we have made a serious commitment

To focus on spiritual growth

Yours and mine

Though that aspect of our ministry

Our the last 4 months

The writer of Hebrews has mashed on us

He has stomped on us a bit

He has encouraged us

And he has shown us over and over again that Jesus is the way the truth and the life

He has showed us his superiority

He has showed us a path to our own spiritual growth


Prayerfully he and I have applied enough pressure

To at least make us look at and pray about our weaknesses

And make efforts according to God’s word to improve

We started the series with a sermon called the

“Real deal”

In Hebrews chapter 1

Our writer began the process of showing us Jesus as supreme

As The standard we should be striving for

He showed him as greater than the Angels

Greater than the prophets

Greater than the law

And Greater than human Priests

Hebrews 1:1-4

Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets. 2 And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son he created the universe. 3 The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven. 4 This shows that the Son is far greater than the angels, just as the name God gave him is greater than their names.

The next week we moved on to chapter 2

With a sermon called “drift proofing your life”

The key verse here was Hebrews 2:1

“So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it.”

In thi9s sermon I through the writer of Hebrews gave you

6 warning signs of drifting

And then a few simple solutions to set the anchor

These 6 signs were

Loss of Focus

Loss of priority

Loss of passion

Loss of discipline

Loss of commitment

Loss of compassion

The next week we addressed purity with a sermon called “Pure Hearts”

Hebrews 3:12-14 were the key verses here

“Be careful then, dear brothers and sisters.[a] Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living God. 13 You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God. 14 For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ.”

The writer once again shows us Jesus as the model for purity

And we looked at ways that we can avoid allowing sin and evil to corrupt our hearts

We looked at how we must cling to our belief

Cling to our faith

How we must work at keeping our hearts pure

And that when we do

We will reap many rewards

Both here and in the afterlife

The next week we moved on to another toe stomping

In the sermon titled “ Sharper than a two edged sword”

In this sermon

Hebrews 4:12-13 were the key verses

“For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.”

We saw how God’s word

Is designed to show us our sin

Convict us of our sin

And then give us the tools to make changes in our lives

In this sermon

We saw how there are no gray areas in God’s word
