Scripture Union Daily Guide 17 May 2021 Monday – Superior And Perfect Sacrifice
Read Today’s Scripture Union SU Daily Guide for Monday 17th May 2021.
TOPIC: SUPERIOR AND PERFECT SACRIFICE
Opening Prayer: Grant me grace dear Lord to apply what you will teach me today as I read this passage.
Scripture: Hebrews 9:23-28
23 Therefore it was necessary that the copies of the things in the heavens should be [a]purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are [b]copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us;
25 not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another— 26 He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.
27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, 28 so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.
Question(s) for Reflection
• What is God revealing to me in this passage?
TODAY’S OUTLINE: Though we may not fully understand why and how things in the heavenly Sanctuary were purified by the sacrifice which Christ offered, one thing that we can understand is that His sacrifice is superior to those offered by human priesthood and accomplished that which the earthly sacrifices could not (vs.23-24).
Read vs.25- 28 again and take note of some ways Christ’s sacrifice is superior to the old sacrifices. These include the following: ? It is heavenly. ? It is by the blood of Christ Himself, not the blood of animals. ? Its blessings are eternal, not temporary. ? It is perfect, never to be repeated. ? It removes sins permanently. ?
It is for all mankind. What can we learn from vs.27-28 about the coming judgment? Many people today do not want to hear about Christ as Saviour of the world, not to talk of Him as Judge. But as sure as death, so is judgment for all men. His sacrifice qualifies Him to be the Saviour and the Judge of the world (cf. 2 Corinthians 5:10; Acts17:30-31).
• What Next? Ensure to amend the areas of your life that make you uncomfortable about Christ’s return to judge the world.
• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for your perfect sacrifice which purchased my redemption. Help me never to take it for granted. • Pray for CAPRO, CMF and other missionary organizations for provisions and fruitful missions.
