Three Hats of Jesus
TEXT: Hebrews 10:21-31
PROPOSITION: We must follow Jesus.
KEY WORD: Positions
READING: Hebrews 10:21-25
Hats represent jobs.
At one time I wore a fire hat (volunteer) and a coach hat (little league soccer).
Out text describes three of the hats that Jesus wears.
I. Jesus the Priest 21-24
He is of the tribe of Levi (through Mary).
He is after the order of Melchisedek.
We follow by: (22-24)
1. Draw near in full assurance
2. Heart and body cleansed.
3. Holding the profession of our faith.
4. Consider one another -
Provoke to love
Provoke to good works
II. Jesus the Captain 25-26 (See also Hebrews 2:10)
Jesus calls the assembly together.
Donít go AWOL.
Many have fallen into this habit.
Rather, exhort and encourage each other-
To be present at "roll call".
Get more excited.
Do not sin "willfully".
NOT: "Missing" church
BUT: "Abandonment" "Desertion" "AWOL"
III. Jesus the Judge 27-31
A. Judgment is:
B. Under the law of Moses
Two or three witnesses
All 10 Commandments = death penalty
C. Sorer punishment
Trampled on the Son of God- dirt on the floor
Made the blood of Christ "unholy"- pig blood
Despised the Holy Spirit
D. Vengeance belongs to God
Not our job to "get even" or "pay back"
God will settle all accounts
We will be in God's hands- fearful thing.
