In this final edition from the Greater Than sermon series, Pastor Greg takes us to Hebrews 13 to one seemingly out of place scripture which concretely sums up the entire message of Jesus being greater than all other things.  As Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, we can always stand in hope, presently serve with dedication, and forever sing in adoration.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, September 11, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

Perhaps there is no better juxtaposition between the rule of law and the reign of grace than the latter part of Hebrews 12.  It is there the Hebrew writer compares the kingdom of Mt. Sinai with the kingdom of Mt. Zion.  In this sermon from the Greater Than series, Pastor Whaley explores the difference between the two and sets forth truth that the greater kingdom of Christ speaks better than Sinai, cannot be shaken, and is expressed in thankful, adoring imitation of the author and perfecter, Jesus Christ!  This teaching was presented on Sunday, August 28, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

Hebrews 11 is often referenced as the hall of faith.  Hebrews 12 makes the transition to a greater faith through Jesus Christ.  In this sermon from the Greater Than series, Pastor Whaley considers Jesus Himself as the greater faith.  He is the faith which receives the promise of sure salvation unknown to the prophets, the faith which can do its complete work, and the faith which can only be learned through obedience.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, August 21, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

Judgement is a terrifying thing.  In this sermon from the Greater Than series, Pastor Greg returns to Hebrews 10 to examine the judgement of God.  There we find willful disobedience tramples underfoot the cross of Christ, regarding as unclean the blood of the new covenant with God.  It is an insult to God's grace. Yet, judgement has been given to Jesus and His is a greater judgement.  What we learn that it is indeed terrifying to fall into the hands of God, but it is an altogether wondrous thing to rest ourselves there.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, August 14, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

Sacrifice and faith go hand in hand.  In this sermon from the Greater Than Series, we look to Hebrews 8 where we see that the former sacrifices of the Old Testament are not sufficient to make us perfect with God because they must be continually offered and always serve as a reminder of sin's power.  But Jesus is the greater sacrifice because His sacrifice is once for all, is effectual for perfection, and promotes love and good works in the heart of the redeemed.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, August 7, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

God is a maker of covenants.  In this sermon, we turn to Hebrews 8 to hear how the new covenant relationship between God and man is based on Jesus Christ and not on any other person or thing.  This new covenant in Christ results in God's word being birthed into our hearts and minds, God's people being grafted into His family, God's spirit being the only teacher we need, and God's mercy and forgiveness being available freely and completely.  All of this because of Jesus is the greater covenant of God!  This teaching was presented on Sunday, July 31, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

We make lots of promises. Sometimes we keep them, sometimes not.  However, God in Christ is a promise keeper!  In the sermon from the Greater Than series, we turn our attention to Hebrews 6.  There we find God's promise is backed by His nature, and shown to us through Jesus Christ.  Because of this, God's promise is unshakeable and always trustworthy.  Those who take refuge in Christ have strong encouragement in hope and do not panic in a world full of worry.  Jesus, Himself, is God's best promise!  This teaching was presented on Sunday, July 24, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

The high priest was arguably the most important person in Jewish society.  In this sermon from the Greater Than series in Hebrews, Pastor Greg examines Hebrews 4 to explore how Jesus is the greater high priest.  Here we learn Jesus is the greater high priest because alone has the power to forgive so we can hold fast to our confession, He shares our humanity so we can draw near to the throne of grace with confidence, and through Him we receive mercy and grace in our hour of need.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, July 17, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

In this teaching from the Greater Than series, Pastor Whaley turns to Hebrews 4 to speak on the rest of Christ.  In a world where everyone is seeking to rest themselves in something, the writer of Hebrews reminds us a perfect rest remains for those who know the Christ.  In His rest, we walk in righteousness rather than weariness, we are sensitive to His leading rather than suspicious, and we can let go of our labor and take His light and easy yoke upon us.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, July 10, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Lousiana.  Thank you for listening!

As we continue to make our way through the book of Hebrews, Pastor Greg takes us to Hebrews 3 in this teaching entitled, Jesus: Greater Than Moses.  As revered as Moses is in the Jewish faith, the writer of Hebrews speaks to Jesus as being greater than Moses in the Christian faith.  Because Jesus is greater, there is no condemnation from God, we have the eternal faithfulness of God in Christ, and we can trust Him with our most whole and sacred selves.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, June 26, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!
