The Hebrews series by Aaron Budjen

Wanting to learn more about the New Covenant? Listen to Aaron’s series of 63 messages in the book of Hebrews. Feeling like you don’t know your God very well? Listen to this series. Desiring a deeper understanding of your identity in Christ? Listen to this series.

You can find them in the Radio Archive section of his website LivingGodMinistries.net by scrolling all the way down to the bottom of the page. Or, you can just click here.

I’m currently on Message #12, although I have listened to the series at least twice before. The first time I heard these messages was back in 2008, and I remember that I would often immediately listen again to some of them; I still have a little piece of paper with notes telling me which messages needed to be listened to again.

I would take such notes because there was just something that I was not fully grasping. Aaron has a maturity in the Lord and a depth of understanding that is extremely rare; I wanted to understand what he understands. I wanted to know the Lord as well as he knows the Lord. I could tell that he was 100% sincere in sharing his heart, and I could tell that he was closer to the Lord than I was. Basically, Aaron was pointing me to a closer and more intimate relationship with my Jesus.

My heart swelled with excitement as I began to grow in grace and in the knowledge of my Lord Jesus Christ!

Here it is, five years later and as I listen to the Hebrews series again, I am astonished that I do know the Lord better! I HAVE drawn closer to my amazing heavenly Father! And doubt I will feel that “prompting” from Him to re-listen to any of these messages, because the Lord has been able to teach me so much already through Aaron.

As a citizen of Heaven, I am here asking my brothers and sisters to check out Aaron Budjen’s website, his Radio Archive . . . and, by the way, Aaron also conducts live Q&A sessions on Saturday evenings via his YouTube channel “Aaron Budjen Live,” and additionally a live Sunday morning message (currently in the Gospel of John.) He also has many archived videos worth listening to at his YT channel, “Aaron Budjen.”

God has given Aaron a ministry similar to that of the Apostle Paul. Let’s avail ourselves of his ministry and the many marvelous (free!) resources that our brother Aaron has so lovingly and so painstakingly created.

How can we draw near to God?

You will begin drawing near to Him after you realize that He is totally pleased with you. Once you realize that you are a completely forgiven person.  You will draw near to Him because He is your Savior, and your friend, and your life.

“Let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.” (Hebrews 10:22)

Believers in Jesus Christ:  God has no expectations of you.  He has already done all of the work Himself; there is nothing left to do; He is not only the Lord of the Sabbath, He is the fulfillment of the Sabbath:  He is the Sabbath Day rest.

You have believed in the gospel, you have been born again of the Spirit, you have been made into a new creation in Christ… now rest!  Rest in Jesus the Sabbath; rest and relax in the Promised Land of peace.

Draw near to God knowing that He does not hold your sins against you.  He really is “love.”  We all know that 1 John says that “God is love.”  Draw near to Him who is love, and you will find that ‘He’ is what has been missing from your life.  And He is not second-best.

He is not “the consolation prize,” as Aaron Budjen says.

Aaron has a radio teaching ministry, and a website from which you can download all of his broadcasts for free.  Scroll down to the bottom section of his radio archive page to find his excellent series on the book of Hebrews.

This 27-minute message from that series will help you to grasp the complete forgiveness of sins that is yours in Christ.  You must grasp this basic, fundamental issue of your relationship with Jesus Christ in order to grow in grace and in the knowledge of your Lord.

And as you grow in grace and in the knowledge of your Lord Jesus Christ, you will draw near to Him.

God eagerly desires your fellowship and your friendship.  And what an amazing thing to look up at the sky and the mountains, to “consider the lilies and how they grow”, and to realize that the God who created all things, the everlasting God of the universe, is the One who dwells inside of you because of your faith in His gospel.

Draw near to Him today — your Creator, your God, and your friend.
