He Sat Down

Text: Hebrews 1:1-3, 10:11-12
Rev. Dave Bindewald

The first century Jewish converts to Christianity who were the first recipients of Hebrews were familiar with persecution. Now, as then, persecution tends to weed out “dead wood”, causes us to rethink and clarify our conversion, and strengthens us spiritually. As our perfect high priest and God’s final answer to our need for deliverance from sin, Jesus offered the perfect once-for-all sacrifice for us and then he sat down at the right hand of the Father where he remains in session as our prophet, priest and king.
