“God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement through the shedding of his blood to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished.”
Romans 3:25 NIV
Read: Romans 3:21-16
Have you ever done something and said: “Once is enough!”? After one experience, you immediately decided there was no need to do it again.
JESUS told us this…over and over. For centuries, the Jewish people held the law of Moses close in truth and in ceremony. Bulls, goats and other small animals were sacrificed. The blood was evidence of an offering to GOD for the cleansing of sins they needed.
JESUS changed all that. HE knew HIS purpose. HE knew the sacrifice HE was to make. No longer would mankind need to routinely and repeatedly spill the blood of animals in asking for the forgiveness of their sins.
JESUS did it all. Once was enough! One sacrifice forever and ever. Once was enough for every believer. The price is paid in full. JESUS, OUR LORD, accepted all your sins; past sins and future sins.
All your sinful debts are stamped with the blood of JESUS: “PAID IN FULL!”…if you are a believer. Are you a believer? Are all your sins truly forgiven? They are if you have trusted JESUS to be your personal LORD and SAVIOUR.
If you have not accepted JESUS’ invitation, today is your day! Once is enough!
Today’s prayer: “LORD JESUS, Thank YOU for your greatest sacrifice. Thank YOU for taking on all my sins and giving me eternal life with YOU. Amen.”
