When you need help you want someone who is capable of providing the help you need, who wants to able to give that help, and who knows what you’re going through in the situation you’re enduring.
The writer to the Hebrews reminds Christians of all eras that there is only one being who meets all (and for that matter, any) of these qualifications to bring us into lives of reconciliation with God.
That person is Jesus.

Preparing for worship we’ll start to learn a new song, All I Have Is Christ, and a much older hymn All Who Would Valiant Be.
After singing Jesus Is Lord, our prayer of adoration and confession will recall the blessing it is to draw close to God in worship through Christ. Our song of assurance will be Stop! Go! Watch!, followed by The Apostles’ Creed and Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow.
Jeremiah 40 will bring the account of Jeremiah’s remaining in Judah and not going into exile. In response we’ll sing This Earth Belongs To God.
After hearing Hebrews 2:5-18 we’ll focus on verses 10-18 where the all sufficiency and all supremacy of Jesus is held forth as we see he is the able, willing, and understanding Saviour.
We’ll be led in pastoral prayer, give our tithes and offerings, then conclude worship singing Your Glorious Cause, O God (Let Your Kingdom Come).

After morning tea everyone who’s still left in town is welcome to stay for a shared lunch.

    I am looking forward to listening to the Sermon on Monday or Tuesday.
