Midweek Update – August 9, 2023

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

One pattern that we see in several of the New Testament letters is the movement from explanation to application. Another way you could put this is the move from indicative to imperative, or, perhaps, from precept to practice. In the passage for this Sunday in our series The Glory of Christ, there is a grand transition in Hebrews from focusing on the teaching about Christ as our high priest to the implications (or application)of this beautiful doctrine for our lives and churches. God desires both our minds and our actions to be transformed by his Word as we “hold fast the confession of our hope” (Hebrews 10:23) and wait expectantly for the return of our Savior. The sermon text for this Sunday is Hebrews 10:19-25.
