For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. (Hebrews 10:1-2)
Today's Morsel: I think that we all go through those periods of time that we are looking for something better. Whether it be a new home, a new car, new clothes, a new job, or even a mighty outpouring of God's Spirit, we find ourselves looking for something better. There is something about us humans that we aren't content forl on. I have heard people say, "There just has got to be something better than this." They are looking for something better. People go to school, work many jobs, travel to foreign countries, trying to find something better to satisfy their soul. The writer of Hebrews says that the law foreshadowed something good to come. To the children of Israel, it was something hard and something that they couldn't follow. But Paul let us know that the law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ. "Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith" (Galatians 3:24). So we can see that that good thing to come that the law foreshadowed was Christ. Even the governor of the feast told the bridegroom, "You've keep the good wine until now" (John 2:10); And the writer of Hebrews said that God has made some better thing for us (Hebrews 11:40). It's called the Holy Ghost. If you are looking for something better, why not try Jesus. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
Sing:Something beautiful! Something good! All of my confusions, Jesus understood, all I had to offer him was brokenness and strife, but he made something, beautiful, out of my life.
