My Bible reading took me to Hebrews 7 this morning. There, I was reminded that the former law and rule keeping system for living makes nothing and no one perfect. It doesn’t get any of us to a higher level of eternal living or points in heaven just because we faithfully kept the rules and did the right thing our whole lives. No…instead we have a hope that is better than rule keeping that only requires a belief on our part and a confession with our mouth that Jesus is Lord.
Hebrews 7:27 says He sacrificed for their sins once for all when He offered himself.
Maybe you, like me, struggle with something that you can’t seem to overcome. Maybe you wonder if it will ever not have a hold on you. I want to remind us today that His grace is sufficient. It is sufficient for our mistakes. Our lack of rule keeping. Our guilt. Our sin. Our way. It is what Father God sees when He looks at us. It is Jesus and His precious blood covers us.
ALL of us.
