I know that some of us have worse past than others. Did you know that this does not matter to God? It doesn’t matter how horrific a persons sin is, it still is nothing in comparison to Jesus’ redemptive work on the cross!
Jesus obliterated sin!
The way religion has emphasized sin and place it at such a high level diminishes the atoning work of Jesus.
By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
The word translated “sanctified” means “to make holy” or “to set apart”. We were sanctified by the blood of Jesus “once for all time”. There are some who say that this means “once for all people”. Let’s look at the context to determine the correct meaning.
And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; from henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
We see that Jesus offered “one sacrifice for sins for ever”. This is the reason that verse 10 must be referring to all time.
Jesus offered one sacrifice that covered all sin forever and then He sat down at the right hand of God. He finished His work and sat down!
Jesus dealt with sin! Sin is not our issue anymore. This is what the Bible tells us and it goes against the grain of religious traditions.
Religion tells us that it is all about how we overcome sin. God tells us that Jesus overcame sin once for all time!
Are we willing to trust and believe God’s Word?
Are we willing to trust that Jesus took care of the sin problem?
Are we will to believe that Jesus opened the door for us to enter into relationship with our heavenly Father?
The things we are talking about are a matter of faith. Are we going to trust God’s Word and rest in His promises or are we going to continue to try and earn His favor through our works?
