Aha Moments: The Complete Covering

Aha Moments: The Complete Covering

Hebrews 10:13-25

Much of Hebrews deals with the Jewish sacrificial system; much of that system deals with blood and sacrifice. Why should we care about it now?

Because we STILL try, in our own power, to live lives according to a scale: if we do more good than bad, we’re “good” people (in most moral systems). But does God weigh our goodness against our badness?

How Is Our Covering Complete?

Salvation is Settled ~ Hebrews 10:13-18

  • 13/14 Our salvation is COMPLETE; God has done what was intended
  • 15/16 the intent is God IN us (not just knowing ABOUT God)
  • 17/18 God doesn’t forget/un-know about our sin; rather, God doesn’t grasp/dwell on our sin – He dwells IN US

Presence is Present ~ Hebrews 10:19-25

  • 19/20 we’re intended to be in God’s presence
  • 21/22 we encourage each other to draw closer to God: no more smoke screen!
  • 23 we HOLD, we HOPE, we PROFESS
  • 24 we THINK
  • 25 it’s pretty tough for us to encourage each other if we’re not around each other: Congregationalism for the WIN!

God doesn’t weigh our goodness against our badness; He weighs ALL of our deeds against ALL of His righteousness. Therefore, we’re completely LOST without Him!

Thanks be to God for the promise in Isaiah 26:12: “LORD, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us.” Our lives are lived IN RESPONSE to God’s Completed work!
