The Withered Fig Tree

Mark 11:12-25

Richard Owen | Sunday October 23, 2016 | The Way of the Cross

What Jesus sees in the temple does not please Him. His actions there as well as the fate of the fig tree tells us of the judgement that was coming for the temple and the old covenant system, now that the King has come.

The Sacrifice of Christ

Hebrews 9:11-28

Richard Owen | Sunday September 18, 2016 | Hebrews

As high priest, Jesus had a sacrifice to offer; himself. His sacrifice was essential for our salvation, and it was exquisite, enduring and effective. How can we respond but to love and serve the Lord?

The Tabernacle

Hebrews 9:1-12

Richard Owen | Sunday August 14, 2016 | Hebrews

God is holy and so it is inappropriate for sinful people to see his glory. Under the old covenant, even though God was dwelling with his people, they could not come into his presence, but now because of Christ’s sacrifice his Spirit dwells within us.

Richard Owen | Sunday June 26, 2016 | Hebrews

There was a big problem with the old covenant - it couldn’t deal with sin or make us perfect. But there were better promises of a new covenant which deals with our hearts. Because of this it is blatantly pointless to fall back on our own efforts or put our trust in things that can be shaken. Only Jesus is secure and that’s where our hope must be.

The Main Point

Hebrews 7:26-8:2

Richard Owen | Sunday May 22, 2016 | Hebrews

The main point of what is being said in Hebrews is that we do have a high priest who meets our needs. Jesus is the one who is pointed to throughout Scripture. He has come to earth, lived a perfect life, offered the sacrifice of himself once and for all, and meets all our needs, so that we can now come to God.

Richard Owen | Sunday April 24, 2016 | Hebrews

Jesus is a priest like Melchizedek, one who is not only a priest but also a king, one who is greater even than Abraham. His priesthood does not depend on the Law of Moses, but he comes as a new type of priest to introduce a new hope by which we draw close to God.

God's Promise

Hebrews 6:9-20

Richard Owen | Sunday March 6, 2016 | Hebrews

We can learn from a person (Abraham) who patiently persevered and believed the promise from a powerful promise maker. This promise is an anchor for our soul, and we can press on because we have a picture of Jesus our perfect priest.

Richard Owen | Sunday January 31, 2016 | Hebrews

The writer to the Hebrews challenges our attitudes. Becoming a Christian is not simply something we sign up for so that we can have a ticket to heaven, but it is about being brought into something completely new.

Moving on to Maturity

Hebrews 5:11-6:3

Richard Owen | Sunday December 6, 2015 | Hebrews

Having heard the basics of the gospel, we need to move on to maturity, not relying on milk but on solid food. It is a sign a spiritual maturity that we know the truth, that we are convinced of it, and are able to teach others.

Richard Owen | Sunday October 18, 2015 | Hebrews

The Jewish High Priest was appointed by God to be a representative of men to God. Similarly, Jesus was appointed by God to be High Priest for ever, to represent us to God. Jesus knows what real life is like - he is one of us.

Richard Owen | Sunday September 13, 2015 | Hebrews

We can enter God’s rest today - we don’t have to wait till we get to heaven. We can choose, in every situation we face to avoid unbelief and dwell in his rest.

Richard Owen | Sunday August 2, 2015 | Hebrews

Don’t be dissuaded by fear or sin and turn back to your old way of living. Remember & encourage each other what an amazing secure hope we have been brought into that is greater by far.

Richard Owen | Sunday June 28, 2015 | Hebrews

Moses interceded for the people and represented them to God, and because God was pleased with Moses he promised to be with the people of Israel. Jesus is greater than Moses. God is pleased with Jesus and so God is with us. Let’s fix our eyes on Jesus.

Jesus Our Brother

Hebrews 2:5-18

Richard Owen | Sunday April 12, 2015 | Hebrews

Jesus is our brother who saves us, he is our brother who understands and helps us in our temptations and he is our brother who is an example for us and whom we can follow.

Richard Owen | Sunday March 22, 2015 | Hebrews

Although Jesus was always the perfect Son of God, God saw fit to make him a perfect sacrifice through suffering, so that could pay the wages of sin. God saw fit to show grace to us, and it’s fitting for us to show grace to one another.

In spite of what we see around us, Jesus our brother is risen and reigning, has restored and redeemed us, and is our rock-solid hope.

Richard Owen | Sunday January 25, 2015 | Hebrews

We are lost without Jesus but with him are life, hope, and a future. So let’s pay attention and get rid of anything that might cause us to drift away.

Richard Owen | Sunday December 14, 2014 | Hebrews

God has spoken through Jesus - something new has happened, a new covenant and a new kingdom, but also a continuation of the past.

After All This

2 Chronicles 35:20-27

Richard Owen | Sunday October 12, 2014 | King Josiah

After all Josiah has done, he now fails to hear what God says through Neco. Fear, discouragement or self-sufficiency can cause us to fail to hear God.

Richard Owen | Sunday September 7, 2014 | King Josiah

Although Josiah turned wholeheartedly to God, when we look under the surface we see that the people were just going through the motions.
