Day 1 - Approach with reverant boldness.

Leviticus 8-11; Psalm 110; Hebrews 4

In the old testament book of Leviticus, there is a seriousness to what is clean and unclean. In the new testament book of Hebrews, we can read how Jesus is now as if our high priest before God, interceding on our behalf.

  • 4:1 Let us fear therefore, lest perhaps anyone of you should seem to have come short of a promise of entering into his rest.
  • 4:2 For indeed we have had good news preached to us, even as they also did, but the word they heard didn't profit them, because it wasn't mixed with faith by those who heard.
  • 4:12 For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
  • 4:16 Let us therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and may find grace for help in time of need.
  • Retention/Recall
    • When we hear and read the good news of God's word throughout the Bible, the truths, the lessons, all wisdom and promises therein; if we don't have _____ it profits us little.

      Hebrews 4:1-2 OK

    • Is the word of God just a stale and stagnant collection of stories passed up through the generations over time? Can it's truths, wisdom, and instruction be applied intelligently to our lives today?

      Hebrews 4:12 OK

    • With Jesus as our high priest before God, how are we to draw near to the throne of Grace? Does boldly mean bravely but with great reverence or casually, with inadvertent insolence?

      Hebrews 4:16 OK

    • Grace is mentioned often in the Bible. Contemplate the weight of what that means. Bookmark in your mind the topic "grace" that we can add to our understanding of it accurately, maturely as we study.

      Hebrews 4:16 OK

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obedience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
