THE SAVIOUR’S SACRIFICE
TEXT: HEBREWS 10:5-14
MEMORY VERSE: “But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God” (HEBREWS 10:12).
On February 3, 1943, a ship was attacked and it began to sink in the waters of the North Atlantic. Four chaplains on the ship began distributing life jackets. When there were no more lifejackets, they removed theirs and gave them to four young men.
Eventually, the chaplains linked their arms together and went down with the ship. The chaplains sacrificed their lives for the young men. One of the survivors said, “It was the finest thing I have seen or hope to see this side of heaven.”
This situation gives us a picture of the sacrifice Jesus made for humanity to be reconciled with God and have access to His mercy and unmerited favour and love.
Christ sacrificed Himself for us to save us from our sins. Christ has made the ultimate sacrifice, but we need to confess and forsake our sins to have access to His forgiveness and the lost glory.
Youths who trivialize the sacrifice of Christ are bound to face the eternal judgment of God, who is also a consuming fire. The door of His mercy is still open for all sinners today.
QUOTE: Christ has made the ultimate sacrifice.
CHALLENGE: Make Christ your Lord.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to live for You all the days of my life.
