Good morning! “That is why the Tabernacle and everything in it, which were copies of things in heaven, had to be purified by the blood of animals. But the real things in heaven had to be purified with far better sacrifices than the blood of animals. For Christ did not enter into a holy place made with human hands, which was only a copy of the true one in heaven. He entered into heaven itself to appear now before God on our behalf. And he did not enter heaven to offer himself again and again, like the high priest here on earth who enters the Most Holy Place year after year with the blood of an animal. If that had been necessary, Christ would have had to die again and again, ever since the world began. But now, once for all time, he has appeared at the end of the age to remove sin by his own death as a sacrifice.” Hebrews 9:23-26 NLT
Do you have a sibling or a friend who comes to your rescue when you are in trouble or need help? Do you have that one person you can depend on no matter what? Who is that person?
Well friend, Jesus Christ is greater than that one person, sibling or friend. He gave his life to stand before God on our behalf so that we can be forgiven of our sins and reconciled to God. Don’t forget to show Him your gratitude. Take time today and thank God for his Son who died on the cross for our sins so that we can enter into heaven.
Father God, we thank you today for the people you have put in our lives to encourage us and support us in life. Lord, we also want to thank you for your promises and words of truth that strengthen, comfort and renew our souls. Lord there is no one greater than you. There is no one more sovereign than you. No one more gracious and merciful as you. We thank you Lord for all that you have done and continue to do. Please continue to strengthen our families, friends and believers in the faith. Keep us steadfast, completely trusting in you. In Jesus name, Amen.
Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!
