    An Invitation
    Hebrews 13: 9-16 Paul invites us to go to Jesus, who is outside the “camp” (the temple, the tabernacle, and the city), bearing His reproach. To follow Christ, we must lay down pride, possessions, and “rights”. We must be willing to give of our time and money and control our reactions to people around us. We must sometimes get out of our comfort zones and minister to others.

    Be Content
    Hebrews 13: 5-6 Are you controlled by greed? By fear of not having enough? Do these affect your giving to those in need? How do you find contentment with what you have, so that you are able to extend giving to others in need?

    Honoring Marriage
    Hebrews 13:1-4 Hospitality has its limits when it conflicts with the Word of God. Marriage originated in the book of Genesis as a spiritual union, not a civil one, between a man and a woman and should be honored as such.

    Hospitality 2: The Sequel
    Hospitality expands to so many areas of our lives: our world, our church, our home, and our hearts. The Gospel of Matthew tells us how we can serve Christ by being hospitable to others. The goal of hospitality should be to reveal to someone their worth and value to God and bring them to the point where they realize their need for Jesus Christ in their lives. Hebrews 13:1-3; Matthew 25:33-40

    God wants us to be hospitable-for some it comes naturally, others have to work at it, but all of us should nurture it. Hebrews 13: 1-3, Romans 12:13, 1 Peter 4:9

    Two Zions
    Brother Mike speaks of two Zions-the earthly Zion (Jerusalem) and the heavenly Zion (New Jerusalem). Zionism as an organized movement is generally considered to have been founded by Theodor Herzl in 1897. However, the history of Zionism began earlier and is related to Judaism and Jewish history. In 1948, the United Nations re-established Israel as a nation. There is no other example in human history of a "nation" being reestablished after such a long period of existence as a diaspora. Brother Mike points out highlights of the history, but makes a point that we are not to look to the earthly Zion. We are to keep our eyes fixed on the heavenly Zion to which Jesus calls us.

    Catch Your Second Wind
    Hebrews 12: 12-17; Genesis 25:27-34 (NKJV) When bad, painful things happen in your life, you make adjustments and get your second wind so that you can continue to serve God and live according to His purpose.

    Grasping the Cross (Part 4)
    Hebrews 12: 1-5, 7, 11 Brother Mike continues to explain what it means to “grasp the Cross”. He speaks of the Theology of Glory and the Theology of the Cross and how we need a balance of these in our lives. The Theology of the Rose-you have to get through the thorns in life to get the beauty of the flower-is how we find this balance.

    Grasping the Cross (Part 3)
    Hebrews 12: 1-4, 10-11 Running the race that God set before you well is contingent on how well you pick up the cross God has given you. We have to keep in mind the finish line. As we endure our conscience, shame, hostility, and temptations, we must not lose hope. Even the most beautiful of flowers, the rose, has its thorns. We may deal with the thorns in our life here on earth, but we will have the Rose of Sharon in Heaven.

    Grasping the Cross (Part 2)
    Hebrews 12:1-4 To be truly able to grasp the cross, there are 4 areas we must endure. As Christians, we must endure shame, hostility, temptation, and our conscience. Christ also had to endure shame, hostility, and temptation but he never had to endure conscience because he never sinned. Today we cover enduring conscience and shame.

    Grasping the Cross (Part 1)
    Hebrews 12:1-4 The theology of the cross often repels people, but for those transformed by the cross-it attracts them. As Christians, in order to grasp the cross, we must endure shame, hostility, temptation, and conscience with faith in Jesus Christ. (video not available due to technical problems)
