One Sacrifice

There is a simple little verse that illustrates our accepting Jesus Christ as our Savior, in other words, our being born again. It goes like this; “Born once…die twice; born twice…die once.” This simply reveals that unless we are born again, we will die twice; once as a physical death and then a second spiritual death. To only die once all we must do is accept Christ. Jesus made it so simple for us when He made His one sacrifice on the cross for all of our sins.

In Hebrews 10:11 the Bible speaks about all those who go about doing what they believe are their good works, and making sacrifices for what they think will gain them forgiveness for their sins, but we learn as we read this scripture their efforts are all futile since there is only one way to receive God’s forgiveness and that is to accept His Son, Jesus. When we do we are then forgiven, and we are born again!

The Bible says in (Hebrews 10:14-18); Because by one sacrifice He has made perfect forever those who are being made holy. The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says: “This is the covenant I will make with them \ after that time, says the Lord. / I will put my laws into their hearts, / and I will write them on their minds.” Then He adds: “Their sins and lawless acts / I will remember no more.”

What a confidence we have as Christians! What joy we have in Christ Jesus! We are saved…we are saved…thanks be to JESUS, we are SAVED! We must now go and tell the world!
