Holiness is not and can never be ankle-length skirts, purity rings, or immersion in Christian media to try to fight against the world. Holiness is so much more than that, and we’ve taught ourselves to settle for the symbols instead of the real thing.
I think it’s time we change that.

Sometimes, we carry those weights around that we don’t even know we’re carrying.
We bear these burdens every day…over…these issues that we think are minor, but really aren’t.
And then eventually, the truth comes out, the answers shed light on why we’ve been thinking and working and living and dying the way we are.
This all sounds so vague, I’m sure. Maybe I can explain just a little piece of my heart on this Tuesday morning.
Adequacy is a huge deal.

Thanks for joining us this week for Hebrews chapter 8! I’m so glad you’re here – feel free to hop right in!
Last week, we discovered a few new things.
*The law has changed – and it’s marvelous. Jesus is sufficient.
*Jesus will never stop being able to save us, sinners.
*Jesus’ sacrifice for us was once for all – because He Himself was enough to cover all sin.
Last week’s takeaway: Jesus is enough for us – and even more; a life lived by grace is one of true holiness.

Welcome, friends, to week 6 of the Hebrews Bible Study. Feel free to hop in any time; we’re so glad to have you!
Last week, we covered two main points – two to focus on, instead of the usual three-to-four.
*Jesus is our representative before God – and He gets us, because He Himself was human.
*Jesus is the source of eternal salvation. No one else.
And our weekly takeaway: “We are redeemed by Jesus – our mediator, our brother, our Savior.”

Maybe it’s a silly notion. Though I’m sure we’ve all felt it.
Unworthy. Undeserving. Afraid of not being enough. Not good enough to be loved.
Because deep down, we know we’re not truly “good,” in and of ourselves – and that’s a terrifying thought. But that fear doesn’t have to destroy us.
