Did all sacrifices cease after Jesus offered up his own life as a one time atonement for our sins, or are there any sacrifices still relevant today in the Christian faith? Based on Hebrews 13:15-16 not only are they relevant, but they have been prescribed for us to continue to offer up, and according to verse 16, "God is well pleased by them."

Under a Covenant of Grace are we still bound by a 10% tithe or did that become obsolete with the fading away of the first Covenant under the Law? And what about church buildings? Are they really to be considered as being the same for us under a Covenant of Grace as the "store house" in Malachi 10 that the tithes, under the first Covenant, were to be brought into?

In Matthew 5:13 Jesus says “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. The lines between the law and grace, not unlike 2000 years ago when Paul addressed this in his letter to the Galatians, may be equally as blurred, if not more so, for much of the church today, thus creating a hybrid Christian faith, if you will, that has become dangerously close to losing its saltiness.

In Philippians 3:20 Paul tells us "Our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ..." Clearly, if our citizenship is in heaven then why do we try and make our earthly citizenships' the greater priority for bringing the kingdom of God to bear? Is this Biblical?

The text for this episode is John 4:3-42, Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan woman at the well. This passage reveals so much to us, especially about worship, and what it actually looks likes and means to worship God in "the spirit and in truth," and why this has nothing to do with a worship service and everything to do with what we do outside of a worship service.
