We have spent the last five weeks examining the encouragement sometimes even a warning from Jesus, apostle Paul, and the author of the book to Hebrews.
In our first lesson of the series examined the scripture that says “See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and no bitter root grows to cause trouble and to file many.” When you consider your walk with Christ, do you only consider the surface matters and/or sell out for moments of worldly “pleasures”? As Christians, we should see to it that our walk with Christ shares the gospel without us saying a word (but rather through how we conduct ourselves). In this, our biggest weapons are prayer and relationships with others in the church.
In the second lesson, we talked about our commitment to God in the face of hardship or persecution and whether it is worth it? As the early Christians did, looking at the past can serve us as examples or warnings of what happens when we turn our hearts from God. Keeping spiritual relationships can assist us in keeping our hearts open to Christ. We were encouraged to see to it that you don’t allow sin to creep into your heart and keep you from the purpose(s) God has planned for you.
Week three we talked about “secret life hacks” to bring us closer to a better, fuller life. These “secrets” often lead us to worldly interpretations of biblical truths. We are to see to it that we are rooted in Christ and not deceived by fine-sounding arguments of the world.
Our fourth sermon in the series focused on Luke 11:29-36 where Jesus rebukes the inclination of our hearts to seek and value signs. Just as Jonah became a sign, Jesus Himself is the sign We are to believe in Him. At Jonah’s preaching, the people of Nineveh repented and were saved. In the same way, the Queen of the south praised the God of Israel after she heard Solomon.
The fifth and final sermon was called Olivet Discourse and focused around Matthew chapters 24-25 where it talks about the future return of Christ. Satan leads the whole world astray by his deception. None of God’s plans can be thwarted. Jesus calls us to not be deceived to keep watch and be ready. If Christ was to return are you ready?
