Throughout Hebrews, but especially in chapter 9, we see that the superiority in Jesus Christ; the New Covenant is compared to the Old Covenant, the Book of Law. The author highlights that Jesus’ sacrifice was once and done unlike the weekly sacrifices that the Aaronic priest were making. It’s also significance to recognize that the New Covenant is faultless due to the fact that it was dependent on God not man. The Old Covenant depended on man’s obedience to the law. If he obeyed, he was blessed. If he disobeyed, he was killed. Jesus’ sacrifice was beyond this concept.

Hebrews 9:22 “Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness of sins.” With sin comes, a need for blood. When Adam and Eve sinned, God had animals killed so that Adam and Eve could be clothed. There are consequences for our actions. But what does God want? In summary of Hebrews 10: 5-7, I think God is saying, your purpose is not to apologize for your mistakes but to do the will of God.

Hebrews 10:25 “Let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of his coming back again is drawing near.”  If you’re not spending time with God, going to church, reading your bible, blogging about scripture or fellowshipping with other Christians, you might consider this a challenge to you. I pray for you now and ask that God direct each of you closer to Him.

Amen.
