This week's lesson (April 28 - May 4): Christ in the Heavenly Sanctuary

Back in the day, you needed three things to meet with God:
  • You needed a special place (i.e. a temple).
  • You needed a special gift (i.e. a sacrifice).
  • And you needed a special person to act as go-between (i.e. a priest).
And yes, you still need them all -- but in Christ, we have all three. 
  • Yes, Jesus is our temple ((John 2:15-21).
  • Jesus is our priest (Hebrews 8:1-6).
  • And Jesus is our sacrifice (Romans 3:25).
You don't need anything (or anyone) else to meet with God, in other words.

No, Jesus does everything we need.

That's because Jesus is everything we need.
