Welcome to Faith Family Christian Center

A place where you can truly come as you are and be loved.

Whether you are investigating the claims of Christianity or you already have a strong and vital relationship with Jesus Christ, Faith Family is a place you can call home. We welcome a casual atmosphere where people are at home in a T-shirt and jeans or wearing their "Sunday go to meeting" best.

We believe that Jesus Christ has provided a way for people to live with peace and hope, even in a world where there seems to be neither . . . We would love to help you experience the hope that only He can give.

Suggested Readings To Read The Bible Through In A Year

Thursday     February 25, 2010    Leviticus 16-18 and Hebrews 5

Hebrews 5:8-9

Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered [9] and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him


    Hebrews 5 is about what it takes to be a high priest who can mediate between God and man. The author identifies at least four requirements for the high priest. 1. He must be a human - “selected from among men”. 2. His ministry is to offer “gifts and sacrifices for sins”. 3. He deals gently with people’s weaknesses because he understands them. 4. He is appointed by God - no one can make himself a priest.

   The author then shows how Jesus met each of these requirements, starting with the fact that God had appointed him. The author points out that Jesus was both God and human – and as such would be the priest forever. He also points out how Jesus became familiar with our feelings. . .

   Verse 9 always catches my attention when it says, “once made perfect”. What does he mean by that statement? Wasn’t Jesus perfect when he was born? Didn’t he live a perfect life? Wasn’t that the requirement for the Lamb of God – that he be sinless? In the context the perfection is not about Jesus sinlessness, it is about him living through the same temptations that we do and understanding how we feel. It was about living through the process of being tempted to make a choice to disobey the Father – to take the convenient way out instead of the right way. Jesus was made the perfect high priest for you and me because of what he experienced when he faced the impending crucifixion. He knew that he was going to die - but he also knew that he was going to rise again in three days. So what caused the anguish that he experienced - the anguish that produced sweat drops of blood? Jesus, the Son of God, got a taste of the emotional misery that sin causes in our lives . . . the shame, the guilt, the despair. . . Somehow he got a feel of the enslaving power of sin over human beings – he felt the sense of hopelessness, discouragement and utter defeat as he approached those hours on the cross when he would be separated from the Father. In his days as a man, Jesus came to fully understand what it means to live in a world where there is sin and it effects all around – yet he did it without ever giving in to temptation to do less than obey the Father. It was his life experience that made him the “perfect candidate” to be our high priest forever. It was not a matter of his nature being changed - it was a matter of being fully equipped to understand what we go through. Jesus is able to “deal gently” with those of us who are “ignorant and going astray”. He understands our weaknesses. He does not condemn us. He saves us. And . . . Jesus cares!
