Series: Jesus is Greater than Everything

Pastor A: Joe Meyer

Pastor B: Ben Johnson

Message Summary:

This message brings us to the place where we remember a hard truth…we will all disobey God. We will sometimes even live in disobedience to Him and His Word. And when we disobey God we separate ourselves from God and from God’s perfect will for our lives. When we disobey, we act the same way that the children of God, the Israelites, did so long ago. But in chapter four of Hebrews we are reminded that unlike the Israelites, through faith in Jesus, God overcomes our disobedience. In and through Jesus we are then given what they never had in fullness, namely “Sabbath” or what that word means…”Rest.” But rest from what? Well, rest from trying to earn our way to God’s “Promised Land” through obedience. And ultimately we’ll receive rest at the end of our lives in The Promised Land of heaven. The writer says it this way: So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his. – Hebrews 4:9-10. Today we remember that Jesus is greater than our disobedience!
