Hebrews 10:1-17

To grow in grace, we have to understand grace - God's forgiveness and acceptance in Christ Jesus.

We cannot enjoy a personal relationship when guilt stands in the way.

Without resting in the finality of the cross, we will not experience the reality of the resurrection.

Nowhere in the Law of Moses do you find a sacrifice that offers cleansing for tomorrow's sins.

God reaches through Jesus' death, where no ritual can.

Failing to finalize the forgiveness issue creates a total concentration on self.

As we grow in the grace of God, and in the knowledge of what Jesus has done for us, it becomes clear: the most natural and reasonable thing is to give ourselves to the Lord for His own purposes.
