Series: Jesus is Greater than Everything

Pastor A: Joe Meyer

Pastor B: Ben Johnson

Message Summary:

As we continue along our “Jesus is Greater Than” path, we come to chapter nine and encounter the worship space for the children of God known as the tabernacle or the temple. While it seems strange to us at first, the writer of Hebrews reminds us that Jesus is greater than holy/sacred spaces. To the Israelites, nothing was more sacred than their sacred space. Nothing was holier than their holy place. Except the God who dwelt there. And we’re not unlike them in the reverence we show for our sacred space. And yet, in Jesus we encounter the God of the sacred space and in Jesus we remember what is truly important…His presence. More than that, we’re reminded today that His presence is in fact in a new sacred space, a new temple, and that temple is…us. Jesus transcends the sacred spaces of our lives and has chosen to be in the life and in the body of everyone who believes and is baptized into His sacred name. Today we remember, Jesus is greater than sacred spaces!
