Sermon Series: Treasures of the Transformed Life

We turn our attention to the vow of presence in worship today. In the passage from Hebrews 10 below, you see that even in the early church some people had a habit of not meeting together regularly for worship, study and transformation.

We are living at a time when mobility is the norm. We are on the move from here to there. We have busy weekend schedules. By the way, does anyone really have a day off anymore?

From time to time, we find that we have to miss morning worship and study together. And yet, we as church members made a vow to be present with one another. Today we will talk a little bit more as to why presence is essential to our church family and why it matters in our faith development. And hopefully we will find that living out this vow will also bless others as we become an agent of help and grace in their lives!

The Word

Hebrews 10:19-25

Therefore, my friends, since we have confidence to enter the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain (that is, through his flesh), and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us approach with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful. And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
