“He offered himself once and for all.” Heb 9:26 CEV


There were many pieces of furniture in the tabernacle, and each served a different purpose. But there wasn’t a single seat. Do you know why? Because the priest’s work was never finished! The people sinned constantly, so lambs had to be constantly sacrificed to atone for their sins. However, when Jesus died, rose again and went back to heaven, the first thing He did was sit down (See Heb 10:12). That’s because the work of salvation was finished! The Bible says: “Christ did not have to offer himself many times. He wasn’t like a high priest who goes into the most holy place each year to offer the blood of an animal…instead…he offered himself once and for all, so that he could be a sacrifice that does away with sin” (Heb 9:25-26 CEV). And because of Christ’s “once and for all” sacrifice on the cross, you have direct access to God at any time. The moment you say, “Father, I come in the name of Jesus,” you’re made welcome and all your needs are met. There’s a story from Civil War days about a soldier sitting on a bench outside the White House looking depressed. A little boy passing by stopped and asked what was wrong. The soldier told him he needed to see President Lincoln but the guards wouldn’t let him in. Hearing this, the boy took him by the hand and led him directly into the president’s office. “Father,” he said, “this man really needs to speak with you.” That boy was the president’s son; he had direct and continuous access to his father. And because you belong to Jesus, you do too!
