The Joy in Responsibility
(An In-Depth Study of Hebrews)
Hebrews 1:1-14 Set the scene painted by chapter one:
The central theme of chapter one…
Jesus is Superior; this Jesus, the “Son of God” is the final Word spoken in these last days.
Vs 2:1-4 Therefore, listen!
God has spoken by His Son, listen, listen very carefully.
You’re either listening or drifting…
You either believe or you don’t…
It is suicide to neglect such a great salvation.
God has given us enough to respond. (no excuses)
Now pick up in verse 5 this week…
Vs 5 Look to the future
Who rules the world to come?
Our salvation is an inheritance (1:14)
Our salvation is past, present and future.
Vs 6-8 Man rules the world to come – Psalm 8
This is too exciting to neglect!
Vs 8b Big problem at present…
Death reigns and man is subjected to it.
Vs 9 Good News
Jesus conquered death and established a Co-Heir and Co-reign in the world to come.
Don’t live out your salvation as if only a past event.
Believe (find joy) in your future.
Say to death – Psalm 8 is my destiny!
The future is too great to neglect; just believe!
