But Pharaoh Will Not Heed You – Exodus 6:9-7:13

Today, we see God again command Moses to confront Pharaoh while Moses again pleads his inadequacy to do so.  Moses asks God, “…and how shall Pharaoh heed me” (Exodus 6:30), and God replies, “But Pharaoh will not heed you” (Exodus 7:4).  Pastor Kevin points to the parallels in the life of the prophet Jeremiah, 800 years later.  In both cases, God assures his servants that He will give…

Hebrews 11:1-7 – Without Faith it is Impossible to Please God

April 23, 2023 – Today, we begin our study in Hebrews 11, often called God’s “Faith Hall of Fame.”  Building upon the previous (Chapter 10) exhortations to endure in our faith, Chapter 11 goes on to describe the faith that endures.  It is faith in Jesus’ sacrifice for sin, personally appropriated, which comes by hearing and humbly responding to God’s gospel of peace.  Our faith is…

Hebrews 10:15-39 – You Have Need of Endurance

April 16, 2023 Returning to our study of Hebrews this week, Pastor Kevin reminds us that the overarching message of this book for its original audience, Jews living after the Resurrection but before the destruction of the Temple in A.D. 70, is:  Abandon the Old Testament system of human priests and animal sacrifices because Jesus was our once-and-for-all sacrifice for sin and…

He Has Perfected Forever Those Who are Being Sanctified – Hebrews 10:1-14

Hebrews 10:1-14 and related Scriptures emphasize that animal sacrifices were insufficient to remove sin and its guilt.  In fact, they served as a reminder of sin. Pastor Kevin emphasized that the same is true of any religious system that relies on human effort.  As prophesied in Psalm 40, only Jesus’ bodily sacrifice is sufficient to atone for sin completely and forever for those who believe.  “But when…

Hebrews 8:7-9:28 – Their Sin I will Remember No More

March 26, 2023, S-1533-KL In today’s study, we see how the Old Covenant foreshadowed a new and better covenant, one under which God promised to put His laws, not on tablets of stone, but “in their mind and … on their hearts” (Jeremiah 31:33, quoted in Hebrews 8:10).  By shedding His own blood on the cross, Jesus instituted and became the High Priest and mediator…

Hebrews 6:16 – 8:6, This Hope We Have as an Anchor of the Soul

Hebrews 6:16-8:6 In today’s message, the writer of Hebrews encourages his readers – and us – that our unchanging God keeps His promises.  He kept His promise to Abraham that he would bear a son, and He fulfilled the prophetic promise of Psalm 110 to provide a new High Priest after the order of Melchizedek.  This new and eternal High Priest, Jesus, provides the…

Therefore, Come Boldly to the Throne of Grace – Hebrews 4:12-16

Hebrews 4:12-16.  Pastor Kevin resumes our study in Hebrews this week, beginning with a review of Chapter 4:1-11.  These verses show that, just as most of the Israelites who left Egypt under the leadership of Moses failed to enter the Promised Land because of unbelief, we today must trust solely in Jesus’ finished work on the cross as the propitiation for our sins…
