"And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified." - Hebrews 10:11-14
The smartphone is an amazing development. In one hand you have a telephone, camera, calculator, audio player, video player, video game, GPS, flashlight and a basic all around computer. It's an all-in-one digital multitool. It meets just about every daily need for the busy professional. Owning one single device makes all the difference in the world.
This last week, we have read through very detailed chapters in Leviticus covering the sacrificial system of Israel. We were introduced to the Burnt Offering (1:1-17), Grain Offering (2:1-16), Peace Offering (3:1-17), Sin Offering (4:1-5:13) and Guilt Offering (5:14-6:7). Every spiritual condition of God's people was met through this complex series of offerings. Having one single offering would make all the difference in the world.
What a glorious day when Yahshua Hamashiach (Jesus the Messiah) arrived to be our single offering. In him alone, every spiritual condition was met by one single offering. We are perfected for all time as we are being sanctified. Our Saviour walked the Via Dolorosa (way of suffering) and was offered up as our sacrifice for sins. His single offering made all the difference in the world.
