See You At Community Group!

These are the questions that we'll be discussing together in this week's Community Group. We'll be meeting at the Caylor’s house in St. Peters tomorrow night--(more info here). Community Group begins at 6:25, and ends at 8:00. Childcare is provided--we'll see you there!

This week's passage:  Hebrews 9:23-28

Explore (Digging in to understand the passage)
  • What are the copies of the heavenly things that the writer speaks about in verse 23?
  • Is verse 23 saying that the heavenly things needed to be purified by a better sacrifice? If so, why? If not, what is the writer saying?
  • What is the central point of verses 25 & 26?
  • Why is it significant that Christ's sacrifice was done once, and not repeated? How does this do away with sin?
  • How does the last analogy in verses 27 and 28 bring home the point that we need a once for all sacrifice?
  • Does the end of verse 28 mean that we have to wait for salvation? In what sense does the writer use the term "salvation?"
Connect (Applying the passage to our lives)
  • What response do you have to the words, "Christ died to take away your sin?" What response do others have?
  • What do you look forward to the most about your (ultimate) salvation?
