"Greater Than" | Hebrews 1:1-4
I am excited about our new series. The audience of the book of Hebrews were Jewish Christians and they were getting hassled by the Jews in their community because they walked away from the teachings of Judaism, the Law, and the sacrificial system. The Jewish Christians were trusting in Christ alone and saw Him as far superior to anyone or anything else. They believed Jesus Christ was all they needed to trust and depend on.
Unexpectedly, the;pressure mounted from the culture of their day and many of those true believers began to compromise or tone down their walk with God so as to live safely and without risk between the teachings of Christ and the beliefs of their culture. The writer of Hebrews cautioned them not to drift away from the teaching of Jesus and the teaching of the Apostles- to hold fast their profession.
So this classic struggle in the era of the last days continues with us as believers in Christ. The question being, how are you going to behave when the culture hassles and attacks your complete dependence on Christ and His Word?
