True leaders point to Christ. "...it's about leading people to Jesus that will
lead people to Jesus." - Jake Edwards
Is God speaking to you today? What we need to do to hear from God and what we can expect when we listen to Him.
What drives- or destroys - community? "See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God." Pastor Jake expounds on the importance that community plays in our spiritual growth and development.
In Hebrews 11, we find that God's faithfulness and strength will meet your perseverance. This faith that perseveres is what all believers are to exercise.
Faith, at its core, causes us to draw near to God, to trust God's promises, and to trust God's provision. Our faith in Christ matters; may we be a people who use - thus grow - our faith.
Access to God comes by the Blood of Christ. Relationship with God comes from our pursuit of Jesus. The last part of Hebrews 10 discusses the spiritual characteristics we develop in our pursuit of Christ, walking in His presence.
"Perseverance is not founded on our power and diligence, but on Christ," state John Calvin. This section of Hebrews 10 looks at apostasy, willfully rejecting and resisting Christ, and compares it to the believer's perseverance in Christ.
