NT reading for week of September Fourth.

This week I’ll be practicing studying the scriptures by encapsulating it with a verse that speaks the loudest to me and a sentence why. I call it One Verse One Sentence. So as I go through each chapter this week I am looking for one verse that the Lord is impressing on me. Then I write a sentence telling why it is particularly important.

So this week on Monday the 5th start on Hebrews 10, Tuesday do Hebrews 11, Wednesday read Hebrews 12, Thursday meditate on Hebrews, and on Friday start 1 John 1

    God took away the past sacrifices of animals and replaced with the sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus. The old plan did not take away the urges for sin (10:2); but if we believe in Jesus and are living holy (10:14); we have access to the throne where Jesus is sitting at God’s right hand.

    OneVerse OneSentence:
    Hebrews 10:36 “You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.”

    I like the plead to struggle and fight in our life in Christ and the reminder that it pays off in eternity.

    Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”

    Our faith in God has two parts: a future hope and a present reality.

    I am reminded of how purely different and holy God is by the way the Israelites could approach him at the Tabernacle in the Old Covenant.
    The Message makes Hebrews 9:6-10 easy to understand.

    6 After this was set up, the priests went about their duties in the large tent.7 Only the high priest entered the smaller, inside tent, and then only once a year, offering a blood sacrifice for his own sins and the people’s accumulated sins.8 This was the Holy Spirit’s way of showing with a visible parable that as long as the large tent stands, people can’t just walk in on God.

      Thanks Ben. It is so good that the Lord provided an even better way for forgiveness. I love the comparison of the earthly tabernacle and the real heavenly one.
      Keep reading and listening to the Lord. We need it.

    1John 1:7 But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

    Choosing to walk as Jesus did has huge implications we gain connection with others and we are cleansed of our evil deeds.
