Read Hebrews 9:24-28

Hebrews 9:24–28 (GNB): 24For Christ did not go into a Holy Place made by human hands, which was a copy of the real one. He went into heaven itself, where he now appears on our behalf in the presence of God. 25The Jewish High Priest goes into the Most Holy Place every year with the blood of an animal. But Christ did not go in to offer himself many times, 26for then he would have had to suffer many times ever since the creation of the world. Instead, now when all ages of time are nearing the end, he has appeared once and for all, to remove sin through the sacrifice of himself. 27Everyone must die once, and after that be judged by God. In the same manner Christ also was offered in sacrifice once to take away the sins of many. He will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to save those who are waiting for him.

Think

Jesus sacrifices is a once and for all offering that takes away the sin of the world.  In this offering he takes away the consequences of sin - all the pain of sins against you - and committed by you - are taken into Christ on the cross.  This opens the way for you to become the person God created you to be.

Pray

Lord - help me to receive the gift that you have given me - and know the true value of your sacrifice.
