“But instead he sacrificed himself once and for all, summing up all the other sacrifices in this sacrifice of himself, the final solution of sin.” Hebrews 9:26 The Message
How will your life be summed up…?
Once and for all … Sacrificed for … Rescued from dead-end alleys … Freed from dark dungeons … No longer doomed … Unstuck from a sin-filled repeating life … Son-loved … Forever changed by the Final Solution …? Your abilities cannot rescue you. Your efforts cannot “free” you. Your accomplishments cannot change you. God’s love for you is summed up in the once and for all life of His Son. His love for you means that you do not have to live your life out of Son-less pits and dungeons. His life got rid of the “sins” you would be doomed to keep repeating over and over and over! Your life becomes summed up as once and for all rescued –redeemed –and restored in Christ. You are accepted by the Father through the Son. You’ll make mistakes .. but … they won’t doom you. You are forever marked by the Final Solution. Jesus loves you. That fact and truth will mark your first steps today … and final steps one day. It only takes a moment …
“God rescued us from dead-end alleys and dark dungeons. He’s set us up in the kingdom of the Son he loves so much, the Son who got us out of the pit were in, got rid of the sins we were doomed to keep repeating.” Colossians 1:13-14 The Message
