October 27/Hebrews 10

Verse 1 > Remember only the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin.

Verse 2 > The cool thing about Jesus’ sacrifice is that we now never have to feel condemned! Our sins are all forgiven with his one sacrifice.

Romans 8:1 (NLT) — 1 So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.

Verse 3 > God is not into reminding us of our faults and mistakes. We shouldn’t remind ourselves either.

Verse 4 > The good things we do don’t make up for the bad things we do. They are as useless as the blood of animals. There is no heavenly balance sheet.

Verses 5-10 > Christ did all the good for us and credited it to our account. Now in God’s eyes we are good to go!

Verses 11-12 > The old testament priests never sat down in the sanctuary because their work was never finished. They were always sacrificing for the sins of the people. Jesus sat down because his work was finished. One sacrifice for all and for all time!

Verses 13-18 > Again the work of Jesus allows us to stand before God unblemished by sin!

Verses 19-23 > We have access to our heavenly Father anytime night or day and we are never a bother to him!

Verses 24-25 > because we are so grateful to Jesus for what he has done for us these verses are our response.

Verses 26-31 > Jesus has done everything for my salvation. There is nothing else to do but to receive it and live for him. I can’t lose my salvation but I can walk away from it. According to these verses that would not be a good choice. If I walk away from God what other choice is he left with concerning my future.

Verses 32-34> life with the Lord may not be easy in fact it may be down right dangerous. But I must remember that this isn’t the only life I will live. An eternity in heaven will be worth what ever I have to go through down here.

Verses 35-37 > Keep going, keep living for heaven. Story: A certain sheik in Saudi Arabia wanted to give his stockbroker a gift above and beyond her commission. “I can’t take anything from you,” she protested. But finally after much badgering and pressure, she relented, saying, “I’m kind of getting into golf. If you want to get me a couple clubs, that would be fine.”
  The sheik came back a few months later, saying, “I got you five golf clubs—but only four of them have pools and tennis courts. I hope that’s okay.”

I am sure God will out do anything that man can do when we get to heaven!

1 Corinthians 2:9 (NLT) — 9 That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”

Verses 38-39 > Hilltop we are the faithful ones!

Be Inspired Hilltop!

    In verse 31 we are warned about falling in the hand of the living God. To fall into his hand means that at judgement day you have never turned to Jesus and will be judged on your own actions. This has the eternal consequence of separation from God and eternal torment. It is much better to be held in the hand as opposed to falling into the hand.
