A Life of Hardship

Hebrews 12:1-11

Richard Owen | Sunday September 9, 2018 | Hebrews

Godly Discipline

Hebrews 12:4-11

Richard Owen | Sunday June 17, 2018 | Hebrews

Discipline from God is seen in the context of family relationships. It is fundamental in the relationship between father and child. It is painful but fruitful. Parental discipline is just a poor imitation of God’s discipline.

Richard Owen | Sunday May 27, 2018 | Hebrews

Jesus is the pioneer of our faith. He didn’t just lead the way but he made the way. He is also the perfecter of our faith who finished the work of redemption on the cross.

Richard Owen | Sunday May 13, 2018 | Hebrews

We need to get rid of sin, but also of anything else that hinders us running the race. We are not to focus on the cloud of witness, or their faith, but on the object of their faith.

Living by Faith

Hebrews 11:32-40

Richard Owen | Sunday April 15, 2018 | Hebrews

Richard Owen | Sunday March 4, 2018 | Hebrews

It is easy to focus on ourselves rather than on Jesus, and make excuses why we can’t trust him. But it’s not about us, it’s about him, and we are called to trust and obey him.

Abraham and Isaac

Taking one step of faith

Hebrews 11:8-16

Richard Owen | Sunday November 12, 2017 | Hebrews

Abraham had faith to go where God told him to go even though he wasn’t told initially all that God would do for him. We like to see what God’s plans are for our future, but God wants us to take a small step of faith even when we don’t know what will happen.

Richard Owen | Sunday September 3, 2017 | Hebrews

Faith helps us not only to look forward to our hope, but also to look back at what God has done. We can be creative with what we already have but only God creates the world out of nothing. Faith is not blind but is based on God’s revelation through his Word and through his Son.
