13-Mar-12:  Hebrews 9:23-28

23 Thus it was necessary for the sketches of the heavenly things to be purified with these rites, but the heavenly things themselves need better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ did not enter a sanctuary made by human hands, a mere copy of the true one, but he entered into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf. 25 Nor was it to offer himself again and again, as the high priest enters the Holy Place year after year with blood that is not his own; 26 for then he would have had to suffer again and again since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the age to remove sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27 And just as it is appointed for mortals to die once, and after that the judgment, 28 so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.

  1. I keyed in on “eager” also! I wonder what our spiritual lives would be like if we held the same eagerness that we do for vacations, Disneyland, special moments, every single moment of our lives? How would the people around us react to the gospel if we shimmered and shivered with eagerness? Hmm.

    1. Oh, just the thought of it, wouldn’t that be a marvelous world to live in rather than the dark one of our reality?! Thanks for the great comment! I am playing catch up with everyone on their journey posts and will be over to see you soon, so expect multiple comments 🙂 Thanks Terri!
