This morning I am resting in (and relishing) the “ONCE FOR ALL” sacrifice of Jesus on our behalf!

This morning I am resting in (and relishing) the “ONCE FOR ALL” sacrifice of Jesus on our behalf! (I’ve included the words from Hebrews 9:23-28 that prompted my reflection this morning…

“Christ has entered, not into holy places made with hands (a temple constructed by humans), which are copies of the true things, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf! Nor was it to offer himself repeatedly, as the high priest enters the holy places every year with blood not his own, for then He would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared ONCE FOR ALL at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself… so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.” (from Hebrews 9:23–28 ESV)

“Once for all” (a decisive and final sacrifice)… Not for His own sin (for He had none)… It was for MY sin He suffered and died! And one day He’ll return, having dealt decisively with the sin issue with His own sacrifice on our behalf, and take us to be with Him forever in Heaven! Thank you Jesus for offering yourself “once for all” for our sin on the cross!
