Sacrifice

HEBREWS 10:26

26 For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins

Let us be real for a second, no one is perfect. But if you are a follower of Christ, there are certain tenets of faith that we all follow and know to be true. One is that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins. Now that said, if you have accepted the truth and the knowledge that comes with it and continue to sin then you have made the mistake of being a hypocrite, accepting the gift under the false pretenses of being a genuine Christian. Willfully sinning is the topic of this passage and is geared toward those who are aware of their sin and continue to profess their faith. Some turn away or lose interest in Christ, rather than grow in maturity during their walk. This person does not sin because they are oblivious to it or have a momentary lapse that he or she is too weak to resist. They are self-aware of the situation and tend to make the conscious decision to cling to their earthly desires.

Please understand that no other sacrifice will do. Only the blood of the one and only Son of God, Our God, can cleanse the sins of this world. That debt has been dissolved through the crucifixion. So do not let go of Jesus, for he wants us in his presence as stated in HEBREWS 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure. We should act as children would with their parents after a long absence. Filled with love, compassion, joy, and embrace our Father. Just know that if you do backslide, it is not over. He knows you and the choices that keep you a prisoner. There is redemption and power in the name of Jesus. You just need to get back to it, take responsibility for your actions, deal with the true consequences of your disobedience and renew the commitment to your faith. I too battle demons daily, Please pray for me as I will be praying for you.
