(Christmas Edition)

Hebrews 3:1-6

Outline

Verse 1:

Consider Jesus, the faithful Apostle and High Priest

Let’s take a look at a favorite Christmas hymn: O, Come All Ye Faithful!

O come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant, 
        O come ye, O come ye, to Bethlehem. 
        Come and behold him, born the King of angels; 
Refrain:
        O come let us adore him, O come let us adore him, 
        O come let us adore him, Christ the Lord. 
O come all ye faithful: Hebrews 2:16-17 Jesus was first faithful and makes a way for us to join the faithful! 
Joyful and triumphant: Hebrews 2:14-15 No longer slaves to death and sin. 
O come ye: Hebrews 3:1 Consider this Jesus! 
Behold him, born the King of angels: Hebrews 1:13 Jesus, reigning victorious King  
And now the refrain: O come let us adore him 
ADORE: 
               Shepherds (Luke Chapter 2:20) 
                               Smell like manure, not incense 
               Magi (Matthew Chapter 2:10-11)
                               More like wicked wizards than kindly kings 
ACKNOWLEDGE: 
               Roman King (Matthew Chapter 2:3)
                               Wanted Jesus dead. 
               Jewish Religious Elite (Matthew Chapter 2:4)
                               Really wanted Jesus dead! 
LIFE APPLICATION: 
This Christmas, do you adore Jesus or simply acknowledge him? (Hebrews 2:1)
