2. I thought the notes did a good job of explaining why our study is taking this detour in the middle of Acts to jump to the Letter to the Hebrews (besides the fact that it is strategically placed in between the chapter when Paul fights against requiring circumcision and the next chapter when he circumcises Timothy.) On the first page it raises the question: if someone claims to be a Christian, are they? If not necessarily, then what decides. Hebrews explains that this isn’t a buffet line where you pick some things but leave others about faith in Christ. You don’t rely totally on Him for your salvation but also try to do it on your own, just in case. Jesus died, the work is done. You are either inside the house or outside. There is no screened in deck. You get to choose: in or out. I choose in!
p.s.: hold onto page 3, Homiletcs division are provided through then end of December in the table.
