All Things Are Made New (Hebrews 8)

If you could restore something in your house to it's "new" state, what would you choose? Why?

If you could have a new start for today, what would you do differently?

What is an activity you once loved, but no longer do? Why did you stop?

Read Hebrews 8:6-9.

What are your first thoughts when you hear the word "covenant?"

How would you describe the "old covenant" God once made with Israel? How many of the laws and promises of the old covenant can you name?

Perhaps the most well known portion of the old covenant is the 10 commandments. What is the value of the 10 commandments?

Can someone earn eternal life by following the 10 commandments? Why or why not?

Read Hebrews 8:10-12.

Which part of these verses do you most like? What questions do you have about these verses?

In your own words, describe the "new covenant" God is making?

What is the main point of verse 12? Why is this good news?

How have you experienced God's mercy in your life?

When you think about and focus on what God has done for you, what are you inspired to do about it?

What parts of your life is God making "new" right now? Are you allowing Him to renew you or are you fighting the process? How?

What is the next step in your spiritual life?
