Life long friend Danny Gabe Moreno called me up and asked me for advice in his public speaking and wanted to pick my brain about joke writing. I recorded it and I believe it is one of the better conversations I have had this year.

As Christians we talk often about living as deeply formed Jesus followers. Unfortunately, this is impossible without the powerful presence of the Holy Spirit working in our lives. In our culture today the Holy Spirit tends to be the least understood, least preached about, and least discussed member of the Trinity causing us to shy away or completely disregard. The truth is without an awareness of and intentionality towards the Holy Spirit, our spiritual lives will quickly become a dry, mechanical struggle often causing us to wonder, “is there more being a Jesus follower than what I am experiencing? Over the next three weeks we will explore who the Holy Spirit is and how we can live empowered, meaningful lives as followers of Jesus.
In verses 18-21, the writer vividly pictured the situation at Mount Sinai where the Old Covenant was given and its awesomeness and fearful nature were described (cf. Ex. 19:9–23; Deut. 9:8–19).In verses 22-24, the realities that relate to New Covenant people and to which they have come are even more impressive because they are “heavenly.” Not only is there the heavenly city, but there are also heaven-related beings, both the “myriad of angels” and the people (“spirits of the righteous made perfect”), associated with it. But above all, it is to “God, the Judge of all,” that they have come—and there are some who indeed can stand His searching scrutiny of their lives (“the spirits of the righteous made perfect;” cf. 10:14; 11:40)—and to “Jesus, the Mediator (cf. 8:6; 9:15) of a New Covenant” whose atoning blood does not cry for judgment as did Abel's but secures the acceptance of all New Covenant persons.If the readers would contemplate these things properly, they would be awed by them and more inclined to fulfill their call to the highest privileges that the New Covenant can provide.Key Takeaways:Simply, this section can be summarized as: The writer of Hebrews contrasts Mt. Sinai and the giving of the Law with the heavenly Mt. Zion and the blessings of grace in the churchAbel's blood made Cain feel guilty (and rightly so) and drove him away in despair; but Christ's blood frees us from guilt and has opened the way into the presence of God.The greater privileges of the new covenant demand greater responsiveness from believers.The patriarchs endured as they looked ahead to the city God was preparing for them. One way to lay hold of God's grace is to look ahead by faith to the wonderful future He has prepared for us.For more information about this show, which includes additional notes and details, please visit the show page here or visit our home page at SeekingourGod.com MusicLife of Riley by Kevin MacLeodLink: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song/3976-life-of-rileyLicense: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/

Whatever we fill ourselves with is what will be poured out of us to the world in turn. When we fill our hearts with the truth of God's Scripture, He presents us with opportunities to speak to others about Him. Our words make a difference when they have His power behind them -- and that difference has the ability to make an eternal impact on someone else's life.

Biblical submission comes from the example of Jesus on the cross—a willing action inspired by love instead of forced obligation. Freely given submission is an opportunity to reflect the way of Jesus through a lifetime of sacrifice toward one another. Speaker: Kyle Idleman

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who was born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died and was buried for the atonement of sin. He rose again from the dead on the third day, and ascended bodily into heaven as our Priest and Advocate. He will return bodily to earth. We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the triune Godhead.
