Questions for Littles: What kind of sacrifices does every priest repeatedly offer (v11)? What can they never do? How many sacrifices did this one offer (v12)? For how long is it good? Where did He sit down? What is He waiting for (v13)? What has He done forever to those who are being sanctified (v14)?In the sermon this week, we came to the conclusion of the major point of the book of Hebrews.
First, we see the greatness of the glory of the Lord Jesus. He is not like other priests who continually offer. He offered only once. He is not like the other priests whose sacrifices were never enough. His sacrifice was more than enough forever.
But there is a greater glory still, and one that we saw in the first two chapters of the book: Jesus is the living God. He is the One who sits at the right hand of the Majesty on high.
We’ve been focusing so much upon the value of His work these last couple months that we’re due for a good reminder of the value of His Person.
He is worthy of the throne. He is the One before whom every knee will bow and every tongue confess. Dear Christian, how often do you fall on your face before Christ and just worship Him as the Living God?
To do so is a joy all by itself, but it is also a preparation for when you will need great comfort from Him. Whether you are facing other trials, or whether it is the greatest trial for a true Christian (consciousness of your own sin), you will want to enter it prepared.
If the greatness of the worthiness of Christ has made little impression upon you, then it will impress you rather little that He is the One who gave Himself for you, and that He is the One who is making you holy, and that He is the One who is preserving You forever.
But, if your heart is in the habit of adoring His worth, then that comfort will be ready for you in your time of need. Adore Him!
When do you adore Christ as God? What does it look like to do so?Suggested Songs: ARP24 “The Earth and the Riches” or HB132 “All Hail the Power of Jesus’s Name”
