Never Give Up
Pastor Rich Nathan kicks off a new sermon series titled Never Give Up. This summer-long series is a verse-by-verse preaching through the entire book of Hebrews. Rich starts by giving some background information about the book of Hebrews. This letter was addressed to Jewish believers who were being significantly persecuted. The great temptation for the Jewish believers was to slide back into their old ways to avoid persecution. A modern-day example of this same type of persecution are churches in China. There is huge pressure economically and socially to pull out of the church. The author of Hebrews holds up Jesus as the One to whom all Scripture points. How do we hold on? By lifting our eyes up to Jesus!
