Righteousness Is Ours Through FaithHebrews 8:7-13
Main Point:Righteousness can be ours before God through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ, to all who will believe in Him!
1. The Need â€“ We all have sinned and fallen short of Godâ€™s glory (requirements). (verse 23)
Verses 10-12 > Psalm 14:1-3; 53:1-3
2. The Cure â€“ God presented Him as a sacrifice of atonement for our sin to fulfill His justice. (verse 25)
Atonement = a sacrifice that appeases Godâ€™s wrath; covers or turns away His wrath from us.(the life is in the blood Lev. 17:11)
It is also our redemptionâ€¦ (verse 24)
3. Grace â€“ We are all justified freely through this grace of Jesus Christ â€“ through faith in His blood. (verses 24-25)
Grace (â€˜charisâ€™) = the unearned, undeserved favor, mercy and love of God towards us.
