Good morning! “The old system under the law of Moses was only a shadow, a dim preview of the good things to come, not the good things themselves. The sacrifices under that system were repeated again and again, year after year, but they were never able to provide perfect cleansing for those who came to worship. If they could have provided perfect cleansing, the sacrifices would have stopped, for the worshipers would have been purified once for all time, and their feelings of guilt would have disappeared. But instead, those sacrifices actually reminded them of their sins year after year.” Hebrews 10:1-3 NLT.
Do you recall periods of time when you did something wrong and you couldn’t get it off your mind? Then for a few weeks, months or years later you recall the situation again and it stirs up an uneasy feeling.
The old system was similar. Annually, you recall your sins, you sacrifice an animal according to the Law, but it was never enough to perfect the worshippers or forgive sin.
Through Christ Jesus, if we repent of our sins, we are able to be forgiven of our sins once and for all. The beauty about Christ Jesus is that even when we recall our sin, He remembers our sins no more.
Father God, we thank you for your once and for all sacrifice for our sins. Lord, we ask you to forgive us of our sins today. We ask that you help us to turn away from the things that are causing us to sin and to purify our hearts and return to you. Lord continue to draw us closer to you. Help us to see you at work in our lives daily. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
Keep seeking. Keep trusting. Keep praying.
