This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Study 10 From The Book of
Hebrews Is: Hebrews 8
1.Verses 1-6. Jews were used to seeing Levitical priests
fulfil their ministry in an earthly sanctuary.
As Christian they needed to appreciate that Christ’s ministry in
different and ‘much more excellent’ (verse 6). In what ways is this true? What
is the significance of His being already seated at the right hand of God’s
throne (verse 1)? Cf. 10:10-14; 4:14-16;
2.Verses 7-13. Why did the first covenant fail? Was there
anything wrong with it? In contrast to it, in what ways does the new covenant
meet our need, give us ‘better promises’ (verse 6), and make success certain?
Note. Verse 10-12.
Experimental progress into the enjoyment of the blessings of the new
covenant is best appreciated from the bottom to the top as (a) forgiveness of
sins, (b) personal knowledge of the Lord, (C) covenant relation to Him, (d) the
indwelling Spirit turning the external restraint of the law into an internal
constraint to do God’s will.
