Glenn Kaiser, an elder in the church, is our guest speaker today. He spoke on Hebrews 10:19-25 as Part 7 in our series on Hebrews. Glenn looks deep into what it means to boldly enter the Holy Place of God and the important aspects of walking that out. He also encourages and reminds everyone of the freedom and promise of the new covenant.
Under the old covenant, everyone obeyed out of fear. Under the new covenant, we obey out of love.
“Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
We can enter the Holies with boldness because…
There is nothing we have or can do to receive salvation or redemption. He did it all!
