Thought for the Day by Chris Wilding (BH Member)
Having obtained for us the forgiveness of our sins and eternal redemption through his blood, Jesus sat down at the right-hand of the Majesty in heaven
The priests of the Old Covenant remained standing in the sanctuary because their work was never finished. Their sacrifices, offered again and again, could never, fully and finally take away sin. Hebrews 10:4 'because it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.'
But Jesus, after he had provided purification for sins by offering a sacrifice in his own blood by the giving of himself on the cross, obtained eternal redemption and fully, finally and forever made purification for our sins. And so He sat down at the right-hand of the Majesty on high.
Here is what this means for you today for you who have put your trust in Jesus Christ.
•It means that you need never again live in fear that your sins will bring you into eternal judgment.
•It means that you need never worry that anything or anyone can separate you from the love of God in Christ Jesus.
•It means that you need never again strive and strain and work and labour to win God’s favour and approval.
•It means you need never again wonder whether you will find acceptance with your Creator when you stand in God’s presence on the day of judgment,
This is what it means for us, that Jesus, the one who is the heir of all things, who is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact imprint of his nature, sat down at the right hand of God.
This is what it means for us, that Jesus, the one who upholds all things by his powerful word, after making purification for our sins by the shedding of His own blood, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high!
Behold, this is your God, 'the Lord, merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.'
This is our God. Let us bow down and worship Him.
