Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God. Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool, because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
I like to think of myself as one of “those who are being made holy.” I hope to be one of those. Without Jesus, this could never ever happen for me. His sacrifice allows my journey to find its goal. Today I need to ask forgiveness of God for all of the sins I have committed, the ones I remember, and the ones I have forgotten. I need to repent, and then accept God’s forgiveness.
Holy One, you have given me everything, every hope and joy, and above all, forgiveness for all of my sins. I am so thankful. Amen
