Hebrews 10:1-39
Christ's Sacrifice Once for All

  • Jesus came by grace and truth.
  • We know that grace and law do not walk together.
  • Jesus shed His blood for the remission of our sins. This sacrifice is permanent.
  • Jesus paid it all!
  • Speaking and living the Word of God allows us to work out our salvation. (Philippians 2:12)
  • Jesus took away our sin-nature.
  • vs16-17 - "This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds." Then He adds: "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more."  This is the new covenant.
  • Christians are to encourage, lift up and love one another. They are to come together as one in the Lord.
  • vs 35-36 - You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised.  For, "In just a little while, He who is coming will come and will not delay."
  • v 38 - And, "But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back."

Mark 2:3-4 - Some men came, bringing to Him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them.  Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on.
Subject: Friendship

In Christ Jesus we have some one who is closer than a friend. (Proverbs 18:24)
In this time period homes were opened to the streets. Jesus was in town and a crowd had formed at a home. Four men brought their afflicted friend to Jesus.
They asked nothing in the way of a payment to deliver him.

Wrong Reasons to Come to the House of the Lord
What can Jesus do for me
To see what others are wearing or doing
Always wanting daily and physical needs to be met by Jesus
To get noticed for a better position or office

Right Reasons to Come to the House of the Lord

We should come to worship God in Spirit and in truth. (John 4:24)
To help others instead of focusing on ones self.
Where two or more gather in His name...... (Matthew 18:20)

Three Kinds of Friends

1. Helpless one - cannot help himself and dependent on others.
2. Helping one - provides true friendship
       a. Motive - unselfish, compassionate and caring.
       b. Method - joint effort, each man had a corner to bear.
       c. Manner - persistent, can overcome obstacles and doesn't give up.
3. Healing one - Jesus, who first loved us, sacrificed Himself for us.
       John 15:13 - There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for his friends.
