Wow, we’re getting to the good part. There are so many beautiful verses in this section of Hebrews. How about …
“For since the law has but a shadow of the good things to come instead of the true form of these realities, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered every year, make perfect those who draw near.” Hebrews 10:1
I love that phrase … “the law has but a shadow of the good things to come.” Think about that. The best things of this life are only a shadow of the joy we will feel when we meet Christ face to face.
And how about this one:
“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25
It’s telling us, don’t waste time! Enjoy the fellowship of other Christians! Encourage them! Spread the good news, so that others do not miss out on eternity with Jesus.
“Therefore do not throw away your confidence which has a great reward.” Hebrews 10:35
All of Hebrews up to this point has been telling us that we can rest assured of our salvation because Jesus is the perfect fulfillment of the law. We are reconciled with the father through His blood. He was the perfect and final sacrifice, and we no longer need to live up to God’s standards on our own.
This is a truly inspiring chapter– what do you think? What stands out for you?
