Jesus Is Greater: A Better Sacrifice
Read Hebrews 10:1-18
“Anyone can give without sacrifice, but not everyone will sacrifice just to give.” ~Unknown
Jesus brought a better sacrifice because…
1. A better sacrifice was needed. (1-4)
The law was only a shadow of reality.
The law was not able to clear our conscience.
The law was a constant reminder of sin.
2. A better sacrifice was provided. (5-9)
It was provided by Christ.
It was provided willingly.
It was provided freely.
3. A better sacrifice was all-sufficient. (10-18)
Remember a time when what you had to accomplish something wasn’t enough. What did you do?
Read 2 Cor.5:20,21. What did Christ do for us and how did we benefit?
Read Romans 5:6-8. What further insight is gained from these passages?
Read Romans 12:1,2. What does it mean to offer yourself as a living sacrifice? What about not conforming to the patterns of this world?
How are you sacrificing yourself to God? Would the world think you are sacrificing?
