Daily Scripture Redemption: Part 23

Because Jesus lives forever, He has a permanent priesthood.  Therefore He is also able to save completely those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to intercede for them.  (Hebrews 7:24-25)

Jesus as our high priest meets our needs: He is holy, blameless, undefiled, set apart from sinners, and exalted above the heavens.  Unlike the other high priests, He does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for His own sins, and then for the sins of the people, for He did this once for all when He offered up Himself.  (Hebrews 7:26-27)

When Christ came as high priest of the good things that have come, He went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not made with hands, that is to say, not a part of this creation.  Not through the blood of goats and calves but through His own blood, He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.  (Hebrews 9:11-12)

If the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God?  (Hebrews 9:13-14)

Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions committed under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.  (Hebrews 9:15)

Christ has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of Himself.  And as it is appointed for man to die once and after that to face judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many; and He will appear a second time, not to bear sin but to bring salvation to those who eagerly wait for Him.  (Hebrews 9:26-28)

By the will of God, I have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.  And every priest stands daily ministering and offering again and again 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, waiting from that time for His enemies to be made a footstool for His feet.  For by one offering, He has made perfect forever those who are being sanctified.  (Hebrews 10:10-14)

I have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God, to myriads of angels, and to the assembly and church of the firstborn, who are enrolled in heaven.  I have come to God, the Judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks better things than the blood of Abel.  (Hebrews 12:22-24)

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation, or shifting shadow.  Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.  (James 1:17-18)

As living stones, we are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.  We are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, that we may declare the praises of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.  (1 Peter 2:5, 9)
