Easter - The Veil is Torn!

"But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself."

Questions for Prayer:

  • Kenny talked about the example of having his wife's picture on his desk, and as an example saying how absurd it would be to stop loving his wife and only loving the picture of her. In Hebrews, the author details how people were being tempted to love the sacrifices and the picture of the Old Testament instead of Christ Himself. In what ways do you see yourself in love with religion instead of Christ?

  • The Holy of Holies was the area of the temple that God dwelled in. Unlike the other areas, the High Priest could only enter once a year after he made the sacrifice to sprinkle blood upon the Holy of Holies. When Jesus cried out and died, God ripped the veil open from top to bottom signifying there is nothing separating us from God now. No longer do we need to offer temporary sacrifices for each instance of our sin. Jesus was the once and eternal sacrifice that bought our redemption and eternal life by His blood. HE IS RISEN!
