Why Jesus is Better

Hebrews 7:11-28

Full Service

The Big Question

Why should I leave my present worldview (way of seeing / doing life) to embrace the worldview of Jesus Christ?

Do you know how relational God is?

Do you know how much better Jesus is than anything else you have going on?

Do you know how precarious your state of being before Almighty God really is?

The Paradigm Shift on how to be right with God…


Everything is made better by Jesus because he is better—than anyone and anything …

“The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless (for the law (or works) made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God.” (7:18-19)

How do you make your way to God?

1.  Jesus brings you close to God
  • The need of priests
  • The power of an indestructible life

“Therefore, he (Jesus) is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.” (7:25)

How do you plan to handle the matter of justice and the way you have lived?

2. Jesus alone saves you completely from God’s final judgment on all wickedness.
  • Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant
  • Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood
  • Jesus is able to save completely because he always lives to intercede for us
  • Jesus alone meets our need because he sacrificed himself for our sins once for all and has been made permanently perfect.

“They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead – Jesus, who RESCUES US FROM THE COMING WRATH.”
(1 Thes. 1:9, 10)
