What I read today
Joshua 7-8; Psalm 97; Jeremiah 31; Acts 8; Hebrews 10
“And it is by God’s will that we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”
“For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.”
Jesus mission on earth wasn’t to change us into perfect people. At least not in this lifetime. His purpose on earth was to give us his perfect life so that we might be made perfect.
In Jesus death, his perfect life was given for each one of us. In that single act, he gave each of us eternal life. In that single act, he set us apart as his children, and he made us holy. He made it possible for you and me to have communion with a holy God.
His love for us made that possible. Don’t take that for granted.
