May 11, 2014 - Mother's Day

Sunday School
Hebrews 8 and 9

  • Jesus paid it all and is now in heaven interceding on our behalf.
  • v1/2  - Now the main point of what is being said is this: We have this kind of high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a minister of the sanctuary and the true tabernacle that was set up by the Lord and not man.
  • v6 - But Jesus has now obtained a superior ministry, and to that degree He is the mediator of a better covenant, which has been legally enacted on better promises.
  • v13 - By saying, a new covenant, He has declared that the first is old. And what is old and aging is about to disappear.
  • Hebrews Chapter 9 v1-5 - The tabernacle was a movable temple, made by man but instructions came from God.
  • v6-10 - Christ is our unblemished sacrifice.
  • Christ, having undertaken to be our High Priest, could not enter into heaven until He had shed His blood on the cross for us.
  • None of us can enter, either into God's gracious presence here, or in heaven but by the blood of Jesus.
  • v11-14 - Our High Priest entered into heaven one and for all, obtaining eternal redemption.
  • The Holy Spirit signifies and shows us that the Old Testament sacrifices only freed the outward man from ceremonial uncleanness and fitted him for some outward privileges. 
  • What gave such power to the blood of Christ:? It was Christ's offering Himself without any sinful stain in His nature or life (unblemished).
  • v15-22 - All, by sin, were become guilty before God, had forfeited everything that is good; but God, willing to show the greatness of His mercy, proclaimed a covenant of grace.
  • v22-28 - Evidence shows that the sacrifices of Christ are infinitely better than those of the law, which could neither procure pardon for sin, nor impart power against it.
  •  Jesus the Christ, by one sacrifice, has destroyed the works of Satan, so that believers may be made righteous, holy and be at peace.
Matthew 15:28 - Then Jesus replied to her, "Woman, your faith is great. Let it be done for you as you want." And from that moment her daughter was cured.
Subject: Woman of Faith
Note: Read verses 21-28 to fully understand this passage.

  • This woman was a Gentile coming to Jesus who is headed to Calvary and needed some private time for Himself.
  • This woman came pleading with Him to aid her daughter.
  • Even the disciples wanted to leave Jesus alone.
  • The woman's daughter was demon possessed but she was determined to get help from Jesus.
  • The mother did not become discouraged when Jesus said not a word.
  • She was persistent in the right way by saying, "Lord help me."
  • Jess is faithful and just to hear our pleas.
  • The woman accepted what Jesus said.
