In our study of Hebrews, we are constantly being reminded about the greatness of Christ in the New Covenant: He offers a better priestly service, a better sacrifice, a better sanctuary, and a better end result for all who trust in Him alone by faith. The Old Covenant was but a shadow of things to come, and now Jesus has come we no longer need to look to the shadow! At the cross Christ did for us what we could not do for ourselves - He completely satisfied the Father’s will by offering Himself as the only perfect sacrifice for sin. He has given us everything we need to live lives that are pleasing to Him. These verses in chapter 10 encourage us that we can serve Christ in this world and thrive, not just survive - living lives of eternal purpose that will bring God much glory.
