READ HEBREWS 10:5–14
In the Old Testament, God ordained sacrifices to atone for the sins of His people. The priests offered the sacrifices repeatedly because the blood of animals was not enough to take away sin and make people whole. But God had a perfect plan.
For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy (Hebrews 10:14).
The one sacrifice Jesus made on the cross is enough to wash away the sin of anyone who trusts in Him for salvation. He erases sin and makes believers clean. Does this mean that Christians never sin? No. While believers must avoid willful sin (Hebrews 10:26), by His grace, God sees people who are made whole by Christ’s death on the cross.
God sees you clothed in Christ’s perfection. It is the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit that makes believers become more like Jesus. He will reveal your sin and give you grace to overcome. This is a lifelong process that prepares people to be in God’s presence forever.
Challenge for Today: Allow the Holy Spirit to do His sanctifying work in you today.
