Theology in Action

Sun, Sep 12, 2021
Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. - Hebrews 10:19–21 (ESV) Many times it feels like theology is distant from our everyday lives. Discussions of the tripartite divisions of man or postmillennialism or the inter-trinitarian love of God can seem ethereal and lack any real life application. I’m sure you might have felt that way through the book of Hebrews. It provides details for some very difficult, distant subjects like the priesthood of Melchizedek or the nature of the new covenant. But the writer of the book of Hebrews wants to ground the truths he shares in every day life. Along the way he has warned and exhorted his readers. But as he closes this section on the nature of Christ's priestly work, he doesn't want us to just have theory. This week he points toward several applications. Take a few minutes before Sunday and read through Hebrews 10:1-25. What does he want us to do with what we now know about Christ? How will it change how we interact with God and others? Then plan to join us in person or online at 10AM this Sunday.
