The Perfect Sacrifice!

Scripture reading for February 18th:  Leviticus 1-3, Psalm 27, Hebrews 2

Key Scriptures:  Hebrews 2:9-10, 14-15 “But we see Him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.” . . .”Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death He might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.”   

The writer of Hebrews was sharing about how God sent Jesus to earth as the perfect and final sacrifice for our sins and to deliver us from the fear of death.  Sin brings death and fear of punishment.  Jesus came in a human body to experience death for us and destroy the devil who is enslaving us.  But death did not hold Jesus, now crowned with glory and honor, at God’s right hand as our High Priest, made perfect through suffering.

Faith Confession and prayer:  Thank You Jesus for sending Jesus as the perfect sacrifice.  Help me to share the good news of Jesus suffering and death that all men might be delivered from the fear of death.

Leviticus 3:7-8 “If he offers a lamb for his offering, then he shall offer it before the Lord, lay his hand on the head of his offering and kill it in front of the tent of meeting; and Aaron’s sons shall throw its blood against the sides of the altar.”  

Psalm 27:13  “I believe that I shall look on the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”

The Founder of Salvation

Scripture reading for October 15th:  Hebrews 2, Psalm 56, Proverbs 21

Key Scriptures: Hebrews 2:9-10 “But we see Him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.  For it was fitting that He, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering.”

The writer of Hebrews shared how God the Father sent His Son from heaven to earth, to take a position lower than the angels.  Jesus willingly suffered death, taking the penalty for our sins upon His own body and suffering that taste of death for each one who would believe on Him.  God then crowned His own Son with glory and honor, declaring Him perfect through His obedient life,  by raising Him from death.   Jesus is the founder of all salvation!

Faith Confession:  I believe in Jesus Christ, Son of God and Son of Man, who is the source of all creation and the founder of all salvation.  I am a son destined for glory through His suffering on my behalf.

Proverbs 21:21 “Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness, and honor.”
