Hebrews 9

(1-10) There are two emphases in these verses: (1) the need for the priests to continually offer sacrifices, and (2) the inability of those sacrifices to permanently take care of sin.

(11-14) In contrast, Christ entered the heavenly sanctuary and offered a single sacrifice for eternal redemption! His sacrifice can “purify our consciences from dead works to worship the living God.

(15-28) Sin is deadly and demands a serious consequence. That’s why “without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” It was true in the old covenant, and it’s true in the new. Christ died to initiate the new covenant, and presented His blood in the heavenly sanctuary so that we could have an eternal inheritance. It only needed to be done once, which should give us pause when certain denominations claim to be perpetuating His sacrifice through the Lord’s Supper. His sacrifice took care of our sin, and with His return we’ll enter into our eternal reward!
