Hebrews 6, 10 (American Revised Version)   1 comment

Snapshot_20130928

Above:  Part of the Original Text

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

EDITOR’S COMMENT:

The American Standard Version (1901) was one of the most influential of recent translations of the Bible.  I can think of two direct revisions (the Revised Standard Version and the New American Standard Bible) of it and one revision of the NASB and several of the RSV.  Also, The Living Bible was a paraphrase of the ASV.  This 1901 milestone of Bible translation also had an alternative title:  American Revised Version, for it was the U.S. counterpart to the British Revised Version of the 1880s.

Here ends the history lesson.

THE FEAST OF SAINT WENCESLAUS I, DUKE OF BOHEMIA

THE FEAST OF JOHN PAUL I, BISHOP OF ROME

THE FEAST OF SAINT LORENZO RUIZ, ROMAN CATHOLIC MARTYR

THE FEAST OF RICHARD ROLLE, WALTER HILTON, AND MARGERY KEMPE, ENGLISH MYSTICS

I.  Man cannot by works merit salvation.  It can be experienced only through Jesus Christ.  When ye have done all, say:  We are unprofitable servants.

II.  Yet good works are enjoined upon us as a Christian duty, expressive of our love.

(1)  Good works spring from faith in His goodness and love.  He will accept our service.

(2)  Love is the motive that prompts our good endeavors.  The Christian wants to do good.  When good deeds are not, is not love lacking?  Motive gives character to the deed.

III.  God is not indifferent to our good deeds.  “He that giveth a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple shall not fail of a disciple’s reward.”

IV.  What an encouragement is here to noble deeds of service!  What more need He say to assure us?  Let us be faithful in well-doing even as “he went about doing good.”

Jesus, Our High Priest   2 comments

Hebrews 4, 14-16

I.  Jesus is the High Priest of the Christian church.  Heb. 4, 14 & 7, 17

II.  His equipment as Priest

1.  Priest must have sympathy–hence Christ was human and knew our lot.

2.  Must have divine authority that his mediation be acceptable.  Christ is the Son & has authority–Chapters 3:6 and 6:20

3.  The sacrifice must be without spot or blemish.  Hence he kept the law and is the Lamb of God without spot.  “Redeemed by his blood,” not by his obedience

III.  

1.  As Priest he offered himself for all men, a full, sufficient sacrifice.  No need of further sacrifice.  He is become the only salvation, as he has ever been.

2.  His work ceases not with his death.  With his blood he entered the holy of holies–heaven–to intercede for us.  As Priest he is our Advocate before the throne.  He “is passed into the heavens.”

IV.  

Then let us join our prayers with his, approach boldly a throne of grace.  In his name call upon God and trust for mercy and help in every time of need.
