Hebrews 10:1-10 Click on link to read passage. You may select your own version of the Bible after the link opens. 

    The book of Hebrews continues to remind us that we only see a shadow of the good things in store for us. These reminders are intriguing to those who stop and consider them.

    The sacrifices of the Old Testament brought temporary forgiveness but not a change of heart. What God really wants is the kind of repentance that brings a change of heart. With Jesus’ sacrifice and the Holy Spirit coming to live in our hearts, this kind of change is possible.

    Jesus had to die to become our sacrifice to make this happen, but he only had to die one time.

    Lord give me a willing heart to be yielded to serve you.

Hebrews 9:25-28 Click on link to read passage. You may select your own version of the Bible after the link opens.

In the old covenant the high priest had to offer sarifices again and again for the people’s sins. But Jesus only had to pay the price once for all the sins of mankind.

We too will die once and face judgement. Praise God, Jesus has already borne the penalty for our sins! He will come again, but his second coming is to gather those who have accepted his sacrifice, and to take them to live with him forever.

Have you accepted Jesus’ sacrifice for your sins, or have you shown contempt for the price he paid for your eternal salvation? He paid the price for you. Don’t throw it away.

Father God, incline our hearts to accept your sacrifice. Give us a passion for sharing your message of salvation with the lost around us.

Hebrews 9:16-24  Click on link to read passage. You may select your own version of the Bible after the link opens.       

    Why did Jesus have to die? In his death he became our perfet sacrifice for our sins. As in a will, his death also made our inheritance available to us.

    In the Old Testament, the blood was sprinkled in the tabernacle and on everything used in its ceremonies. The shedding of blood was a requirement for forgiveness.

    The tabernacle and everything associated with it is only a copy or representation of the greater and more glorious sanctuary in the heavenlies.

    The new covenant has been established in the heavenly tabernacle with Jesus’ own blood. Jesus is our high priest and he is interceding for us in the true tabernacle in heaven.

    Take time now to thank him for the sacrifice he made so he could be there to intercede on your behalf. Share your heart with him with the confidence that he understands your needs and cares for you.

How blessed we are to live under the new covenant! The sacrifices of the old covenant were temporary. They could only make people outwardly clean.

But Jesus became both our sacrificial lamb and our high priest. Because of Jesus’ sinless life, he could be our perfect sacrifice.

Only Jesus can cleanse our hearts and change us from the inside out. Only through Jesus’ cleansing are we able to serve the living God. Jesus became our mediator and high priest. Only Jesus can offer us eternal life through the blood he shed for our atonement. Let us thank him for his priceless gift.
