Clint Pitman, from Isaiah 42:2-3. Clint focuses our attention on the kindness of Jesus towards believers who are struggling. Jesus’ character, as prophesied in Isaiah, is different from rulers of this age. He does not seek the celebrity and fame of this world. He does not beat his people down, but lifts us up. And he brings justice in the way he treats people, in his punishment of the wicked, and in his atonement of his people! (The audio cuts off the end of the message)
Cary Cox, from Jude 24-25. Jude closes his letter with a glorious doxology – an outburst of God-centered praise! Jude knew that the hope of the church is not in our ability to keep his instructions or get rid of false teachers. No, the hope of the church is in HIM, who is able to keep us from stumbling!
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 10:26-39. The powerful warnings of Hebrews come to a climax, as two paths are set before us: We can shrink back from the church and ultimately from Christ, and face the fiery judgment of God. Or, we can draw near in faith until the end with the people of God, and receive the reward.
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 6:4-12. One of the most serious warnings in the Bible: Apostasy. Falling away from the faith of Christ forever. There is no cure for apostasy. Who are these who fall away? Is this a real danger? Is there any biblical basis for assurance of salvation?
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 3:7-19. Israel could not enter the promised land because of unbelief – God swore they would not enter his rest. The writer of Hebrews warns Christians not to repeat this mistake of hardening our hearts at God’s better word – Jesus Christ. He calls us to watch out for the poison of unbelief in the church congregation by devoting ourselves to daily ministry to our brothers and sisters in Christ!
