  12. 12. NOTE n enot on scre Hebrews 4:14-1614 Therefore, since we have a great high priest whohas ascended into heaven,[f] Jesus the Son of God, letus hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do nothave a high priest who is unable to empathize with ourweaknesses, but we have one who has been temptedin every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16 Letus then approach God’s throne of grace withconfidence, so that we may receive mercy and findgrace to help us in our time of need. 12
  13. 13. 1 Hebrews 10:1-14 The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—notthe realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the samesacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect thosewho draw near to worship. 2 Otherwise, would they not have stoppedbeing offered? For the worshipers would have been cleansed once for all,and would no longer have felt guilty for their sins. 3 But those sacrificesare an annual reminder of sins. 4 It is impossible for the blood of bulls andgoats to take away sins. 5 Therefore, when Christ came into the world, hesaid: “Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you preparedfor me; 6 with burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased. 7Then I said, ‘Here I am—it is written about me in the scroll I have come todo your will, my God.’” 8 First he said, “Sacrifices and offerings, burntofferings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased withthem”—though they were offered in accordance with the law. 9 Then hesaid, “Here I am, I have come to do your will.” He sets aside the first toestablish the second. 10 And by that will, we have been made holythrough the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11 Dayafter day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; againand again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take awaysins. 12 But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice forsins, he sat down at the right hand of God, 13 and since that time hewaits for his enemies to be made his footstool. 14 For by one sacrifice hehas made perfect forever those who are being made holy. 13

  16. 16. Hebrews 10:19-2519 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we haveconfidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood ofJesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us throughthe curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a greatpriest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to Godwith a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faithbrings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from aguilty conscience and having our bodies washed with purewater. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess,for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider howwe may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habitof doing, but encouraging one another—and all the moreas you see the Day approaching. 16
  17. 17. Story: At a comparative religions conference, the wise and the scholarly were in aspirited debate about what is unique about Christianity. Someone suggested what setChristianity apart from other religions was the concept of incarnation, the idea that Godtook human form in Jesus. But someone quickly said, “Well, actually, other faithsbelieve that God appears in human form.” Another suggestion was offered: what aboutresurrection? The belief that death is not the final word. That the tomb was foundempty. Someone slowly shook his head. Other religions have accounts of peoplereturning from the dead. Then, as the story is told, C.S. Lewis walked into the room,tweed jacket, pipe, arm full of papers, a little early for his presentation. He sat downand took in the conversation, which had by now evolved into a fierce debate. Finallyduring a lull, he spoke saying, “what’s all this rumpus about?” Everyone turned in hisdirection. Trying to explain themselves they said, “We’re debating what’s unique aboutChristianity.” “Oh, that’s easy,” answered Lewis. “It’s grace.” The room fell silent.Lewis continued that Christianity uniquely claims God’s love comes free of charge,no strings attached. No other religion makes that claim. After a moment someonecommented that Lewis had a point, Buddhists, for example, follow an eight-fold pathto enlightenment. It’s not a free ride. Hindus believe in karma, that your actionscontinually affect the way the world will treat you; that there is nothing that comes toyou not set in motion by your actions. Someone else observed the Jewish code of thelaw implies God has requirements for people to be acceptable to him and in Islam Godis a God of Judgement not a God of love. You live to appease him At the end of thediscussion everyone concluded Lewis had a point. Only Christianity dares toproclaim God’s love is unconditional. An unconditional love that we call grace.Christians boldly proclaim that grace really has precious little to do with us, ourinner resolve, or our lack of inner resolve. Rather, grace is all about God and Godfreely giving to us the gifts of forgiveness, mercy, and love. 17
