March 15 – Hebrews 10
LOOK: We continue to look at the superiority of Christ over the old system of sacrifices by human priests. The author continues to show how that old system could not satisfy a Holy God. “Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, and since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool. For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.”
LISTEN: The only payment that could be made that would fit the bill was a perfect sacrifice, one that only Jesus could offer. Next we are challenged to continue in the faith and not give up. Perseverance was a theme that this author insisted on. Those that give up and leave the faith show that they never received forgiveness and need to be saved.
LEARN: Are you remaining faithful? Abide in Christ…apart from Him there is no life.
