Heart Warning (Deuteronomy 29)

We now come to Moses’ last sermon to the people before he dies and the people of Israel enter the promised land. Moses is ratifying the covenant between God and the people, a foreshadowing of when Christ would come and ratify the covenant people God and his people. The people of Israel need to understand the nature of this covenant. The people need to understand who they are and the dangers they face regarding their covenant keeping with the Lord who loves them and has delivered them. Let us look at what Moses has to say as his final words of warning and encouragement to the people…

Emptying the Cross of Its Power (1 Corinthians 1:17)

Our theme this year has been centering our thoughts on the cross of Jesus. The cross changes everything about how we live and how we look at life. For today’s lesson, I want for us to focus our attention on something the apostle Paul says 1 Corinthians 1:17.

13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? 14 I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15 so that no one may say that you were baptized in my name. 16 (I did baptize also the household of Stephanas. Beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized anyone else.) 17 For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with words of eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. (1 Corinthians 1:13–17 ESV)

But this has caused the writer to stop and make the point that there is so much to this point but that it would be hard to explain to this audience because they are dull of hearing. So chapter 6 has been a warning to these Christians to move on to maturity or be at risk of falling away and not being restored. But his hope for them is to look to the people of faith like Abraham who patiently waited for the promises and ran to the Lord for refuge. This has brought the writer of Hebrews back to his key point in Hebrews 6:20, “Where Jesus…has become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” Now he is going to explain about this Melchizedek and what this means regarding Jesus and us in chapter 7. Before we examine this chapter, I want to remind us of the purpose that the writer of Hebrews has for this audience…
