“Because by one sacrifice He has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.” – Hebrews 10:14
“It was a perfect sacrifice by a perfect person to perfect some very imperfect people. By that single offering, He did everything that needed to be done for everyone who takes part in the purifying process.” (The Message)
The sacrifice of our Savior covered all sin, for all time, for those submitted to our Source. By His Spirit, we have the solution that subtracts the scorn of all our sin, when we choose to stand strong and accept the sacrifice that was made on our behalf.
As we learn to allow God to be Lord of our lives, the desire to do His will and the understanding of just how significant was His sacrifice, grow exponentially.
Each and every day, as I rise and seek Him, He sheds new light on the depth of His love, and reveals more of His remarkable character as my Redeemer. Not only was He faithful to walk the long, hard road on our behalf, but He longs to lead and love us into eternal life. His mercy and grace are given as a gift, and are meant to be ours to receive. As we learn to receive, remarkable revelations become regular in our routine with our Redeemer.
Again, I stand in awe, as I look to He who hung on that cross, and willingly, lovingly, did so that I might choose Him, and walk in relationship with Him all of my days.
Though we are imperfect, we are seen as perfect through the covering of Christ in the eyes of our Eternal Father.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You is not nearly sufficient to express my gratitude for Your great gifts, given freely, to each of us. Forgive us Father, for not always being aware of the significance of the sacrifice that was made on our behalf, and the greatness of the gifts that each one of us have been given. Teach us to trust You with our everything, and to step out courageously and use our voices to tell the story of Your great love in our lives. May Your loving light shine brightly into the dark places that surround us. Amen.
