Hebrews 9:28 – so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.
I’m reading through Hebrews right now and I read this passage last night. There are two things I want to encourage you with today:
1. If you are saved, if you are in Christ, your sins are done away with! Your record is clean because of Jesus Christ’s life, death and resurrection. This is the good news and it’s the kind of thing we forget about far too often. If your sins have been paid; why should you continue living in them? They have been paid for, so now you can live a new life in Christ. You can kill the sins you have struggled with in your flesh because now you live by the Spirit.
Be encouraged, your sins are done away with and now you can live your new life in Jesus. Now, let us eagerly await the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
