EXPLORING GOD’S WORD 52c


ATONEMENT CONTINUED:    *His atonement was voluntary.   Psalms 40:Sacrifice and offering You did not desire;My ears You have opened.Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require.Then I said, “Behold, I come;In the scroll of the book it is written of me.I delight to do Your will, O my God,And Your law is within my heart.”

Christ’s Death Fulfills God’s Will

Hebrews 10: 5 Therefore, when He came into the world, He said:“Sacrifice and offering You did not desire,But a body You have prepared for Me.In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sinYou had no pleasure.Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come—In the volume of the book it is written of Me—To do Your will, O God.’”Previously saying, “Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the law), then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.” He takes away the first that He may establish the second.John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. 15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
