The Mountain of the Lamb

Today’s sermon is from Hebrews 12:18-24.

God brought His people out of bondage for a purpose–to serve Him.  The people, however, were afraid, and they wanted Moses to stand in for them.  They didn’t want to face God themselves and sent Moses in their place.  Meanwhile, they returned to their pagan cults, like some of the Hebrews to whom St. Author was writing.  Those Hebrews are reminded of God’s promises of blessings for the “first-born” whom Jesus has made perfect through the new covenant.  We are like Cain, yet Jesus has made us righteous, like Abel, like Abraham, like Moses, and like all those who have died in the LORD.  We need to accept God’s perfect sacrifice for us, to just come and drink from the living water for us that flows from Zion.


The Mountains of God

Hebrews 12:18-24 pictures us worshiping TOGETHER with “the great cloud of witnesses” and one another on a mountain that CAN be touched (Zion); as opposed to what happened on a mountain that could not be touched (Sinai) and was resolved upon a hill (Calvary) that cannot be ignored.


Team Training

Hebrews 12:12-17 teaches us that we train together as a team and our training has two aspects: (1) relationship (you all); and, (2) reward (healing, peace, holiness, and grace through repentance).
