What does it mean that Jesus is the “radiance of God’s glory,” and how do we bask in it? The right kind of light makes you see things you didn’t see before. This sermon is a high-level summary of our series on Hebrews.

Parting heartfelt instructions, and ethics that never die (Growing Deeper with Hebrews 13)
What would be your parting words to a child as they headed off to college? Hebrews 13 feels like important parting words which need to be taken to heart to ensure faithfulness. I explore them with and for you in this episode.
Trials can be trainers and teachers [Sermon]
What if a current trial was God training or teaching you to become more holy? What if God didn’t want lesser things for you, but greater? That’s what I explore in this sermon on Hebrews 12:1-13.
Hardship as discipline and training as we fix our eyes on Jesus in the race of life (Growing Deeper with Hebrews 12:1-13)
What if there was actually a point to your hardships? What if you were being disciplined and trained for something else? In this podcast episode I explore these ideas (and others) as we look closely at Hebrews 12:1-13.
Sanctification, the last sacrifice, and the role other people play in your own holiness (Growing Deeper with Hebrews 10:1-25)
If you are a follower of Jesus you are “being made holy.” Did you realize others have a role to play in that process? In this podcast episode I explore this (and other things) as we look closely at Hebrews 10:1-25.
Your Soul Anchor [Sermon]
There are times when you don’t have an option: You need to venture out into the storm. This sermon explores Hebrews 6:13-20 and the good news that “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.”
Storms, anchors, and your horizon of hope (Growing Deeper with Hebrews 6:13-20)
In a world of broken promises, God’s promises remain unbroken. That’s no small thing when it comes to what he says about hope! You have an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. In this episode I explore these topics via Hebrews 6:13-20.
Caution Counsel Encouragement [Sermon]
Are you open to hearing from God for this specific chapter of your life? Do you need a word of caution, counsel, or encouragement? This is what we explore directly in this sermon on Hebrews 5:11-6:12.
Christian immaturity, apostasy and getting back on track (Growing Deeper with Hebrews 5:11 – 6:12)
Do you need a word of caution, counsel, or encouragement? In this episode I take us through Hebrews 5:11 – 6:12 to see what God might be saying to each of us.
You go to who you know [Sermon]
When you’re in over your head, you go to who you know for help. When we don’t take our most urgent pleas to God, it might be a symptom of not knowing his heart. This sermon on Hebrews 4:14 – 5:10 shows how when you know God’s heart, you’re more likely to open yours.
Urgent: Approach God’s throne with boldness (Growing Deeper with Hebrews 4:14 – 5:10)
If we don’t know God’s heart, we’re less likely to go to him when times get tough. But if we do, we can find grace and help in our urgent times of need. That’s what this sermon explores on Hebrews 4:14 – 5:10.
Resting in peace… someday, but also today (Growing Deeper with Hebrews 4:1-13)
One day a week for worship and rest is “heaven’s appetizer.” What is that, and why does it help us during tough, tiring times? That’s what I explore in this episode about Hebrews 4:1-13.
The pulse of God’s house, and holding firmly to our confidence and hope (Growing Deeper with Hebrews 3:1-6)
Jesus’ people are the “very house of God.” In this episode on Hebrews 3:1-6 I explore how this house can be a home for others in a time of wandering confusion.
The humanity of Jesus and three helps for weary souls (Growing Deeper with Hebrews 2:5-18)
Someone who has “been there” like you will be there for you. In this episode I explore this idea by looking in-depth at Hebrews 2:5-18, the humanity of Jesus, and help for weary souls.
Angels, Jesus, and preferring pebbles to pearls (Growing Deeper with Hebrews 1:4-14)
Have you ever thought, ‘Well, maybe Jesus isn’t all he’s cracked up to be. Maybe I should consult a fortune-teller or rub that little Buddha’s belly just to ensure I have all my bases covered.’ In this podcast episode I explore Hebrews 1:4-14 and the things we do which undermine (even subconsciously) our belief in the sufficiency and supremacy of Jesus.
The radiance of Jesus [Sermon]
You can have courage for the battle when you have confidence in your leader. That’s what the book of Hebrews (and this sermon on the 1st 3 verses) does: provide clarity about Jesus.
