January 29, 2017: Such a Great Salvation

Hebrews series 3

Text: Hebrews 2:10

I had plans to complete this chapter in two weeks but just could not move past verse 10. It contains such rich Gospel truth and comfort for us, I want to unpack this verse by itself. Two primary truths that will lead us in to Communion: bringing us to glory and our Savior being made perfect through suffering. Through the valleys and heartaches of life, this is not our home. We are citizens of heaven and merely pilgrims passing through. And the only pathway toward this reconciliation and heavenly inheritance is through the suffering of the Son - how seriously do we view our sin? Charles Spurgeon  reminds us not to belittle the "lesser sins", for which Christ suffered and died in order to redeem us.
