    Exhortations: A Study of Hebrews

    Exhortations: A Study of Hebrews
    Ken Hines

    Hebrews is unfortunately neglected by modern Christians. Many of its symbols--blood, sacrifice, priesthood--belong to ancient times and seem completely irrelevant to our needs and problems. But a deeper look into the language will show us that it is the greatest work of exhortation in the Bible. In chapter after chapter it urges us to hang on to our faith, no matter the cost or circumstances. Two of Hebrews' key words are "Jesus" and "today." No message could be more relevant in these days of burnout and aimlessness. This timeless book encourages us to live out a deeper, more authentic faith, a faith rooted and grounded in Jesus, today.

    Be Present: Living in the Fullness of God

    Be Present: Living in the Fullness of God
    Jeff Sadler and Marc Compton

    Now. It is the demand of our time. Everything piles up and it all is seemingly vital to be done now. Ironically, we typically live our lives thinking about tomorrow or trying to redesign the past. Our now, the now for our essence, our soul, is set aside. God wants us to be people for the right now and He wants more peace, comfort, love, joy, and faith in the right now moment of our life. So, how do we do a better job staying in the now? What gets in our way? What restructuring is necessary to feed our faith and make us more aware? Those are the encouraging elements we intend to explore. Ephesians 3:19 (ESV) expresses God’s desire that we “…know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” Come discuss victory, abundance, time, mission, fullness, light, gratefulness, enough, connecting, and other principles from throughout the Bible for your quest to be more present.
