Daily Fountain 2017 - Jesus The Final And Absolute Sacrifice

Saturday January 21st

Bible Reading:     Heb. 10: 1 - 18

Topic:         Jesus The Final And Absolute Sacrifice

Today's text teaches the Superiority of Christianity over Judaism, Grace over Law, New Testament over the Old Testament, the Blood of Jesus over the blood of animals and the mystery of a permanent atonement over daily sacrifice.

Jesus liberates us (Jews and Gentiles alike) from rituals of Judaism through the shedding of His Precious Blood.

Thus He offers total salvation atonement for sin

A Believer's salvation is eternally secure because of the finished work of Christ on the Cross.

This however should not be misunderstood to mean that we can live anyhow we like just because we claim that we are saved.

Though Christ offers free and full salvation, we still have a responsibility to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling (humility) as Paul commands us in Phil. 2: 12

Jesus' proclamation - "it is finished" (John 9: 30) - puts nullity to other demands for or means of salvation.

Jesus shed His Blood once for all for your salvation and that settles every controversy that might be going on around your life right now.

No other ransom or ritual is necessary.

Believe the Word of God; Jesus has set you free (John 8: 36). There is no need to live with guilt, fear or hopelessness any longer.

Lord Your Word is true. Please help my unbelief, Amen

Memory verse:   Heb. 10: 4
"For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sin."
