“…He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead!…” -Mark 16:6.
Thanks be to God for the Lamb, Jesus Christ! By his once and for all sacrifice, his blood has provided the perfect cleansing of my sins and the sins of the world!!! May the joy, hope and victory in His resurrection fill our hearts daily!
What does the bible say?
Animal Sacrifices Insufficient:
- Hebrews 10:1,4 – “… The sacrifices under the old system were repeated again and again, year after year, but they were never able to provide perfect cleansing for those who came to worship. For it is not possible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.”
Christ is the Perfect Sacrifice:
- Hebrew 9:12 – “Once for all time he took blood into that Most Holy Place, but not the blood of goats and calves. He took his own blood, and with it he secured our salvation forever.”
Our Joy, Hope and Victory:
- Hebrew 9:27-28 – “And just as it is destined that each person dies only once and after that comes judgement, so also Christ died only once as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again but not to deal with our sins again. This time he will bring salvation to all those who are eagerly waiting for him.”
- Hebrew 10:14 – “For by that one offering he perfected forever all those whom he is making holy.”
“… let us go right into the presence of God, with true hearts fully trusting him. For our evil consciences have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water. Without wavering, let us hold tightly to the hope we say we have, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.” -Hebrews 10:22-23
