Jesus, Our Great High Priest
Hebrews 4:14-16
Jesus is our Great High Priest. Because of him we can approach God's throne of grace with boldness. Great news! However, it does raise some big questions- why couldn't we approach God's throne with boldness anyway? Why do we need a great High Priest at all? And why is this whole subject so important both in the letter to the Hebrews and to us today?

Luke 24:36

Joy Blockers
Acts Acts 8:4-25
When the gospel lands in a life, it’s meant to result in much joy! But, like Simon in Acts 8, we often fall for two classic joy-blockers that hold us back on the journey to joy. Here, Rich highlights those joy-blockers and points to the truths that obliterate them!

Don't Be Deluded!
Colossians 1:24-2:5
Believing things that aren’t true has real implications in your life. That’s why Paul longs for the Colossians not to be deluded! We explore two themes that even the most fruitful and faithful Christians can be off-track on and hear God, through Paul, calling us back to clarity and confidence.

Contentment
Philippians 4:11-13
Contentment is a hugely attractive thing but it's also elusive. Looking at some of Paul's words from prison, we see how to take hold of an indestructible contentment that can be ours whatever the circumstance.
