JESUS IS GREATER – THE BOOK OF HEBREWS: Week 5
MESSAGE SCRIPTURES: Hebrews 4 – 5:10 (ESV);
- The saving message of God’s love is only effective when it meets with FAITH IN OUR HEARTS .
- Faith requires ACTION .
- We do not need to struggle and labor to increase our righteousness because GOD IS SATISFIED with the righteousness of Christ that He has given to us.
LIFE LESSON FROM HEBREWS
- Because Jesus was fully human (in addition to being fully God), He can relate to any TEMPTATION or STRUGGLE you face (4:15)
- As a human, Jesus had to LEARN TO SUBMIT to God’s will not matter what it was.
- This type of obedience can only be learned through EXPERIENCE.
