Hebrews 10:12, Hebrews 3:14
"But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for
sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God."
"For we are made partakers of Christ if we hold the
beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end."
Here we have a CONTRAST. In Hebrews 10:12 we have,
"This man." Then in Hebrews 3:14, "We." There is a

CHRIST, the GREATEST ONE IN ALL THE WORLD.
It is wonderful to think about HIM. There is one thing
dead sure, that I have determined about my own
ministry: it is going to have more "JESUS" in it than
it has ever had before! THIS MAN is going to be the
theme of my preaching, more than ever before, because
JESUS CHRIST is the Only Answer to human need! "THIS
What about THIS MAN?
