Hebrews 10:12

But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

Golf has a strange way of humbling the best of us. For one round, one week, or maybe a month each year, we feel like everything is clicking and we have mastered the game. We then wake up one day and can’t find a fairway, hit “clanky” wayward irons and miss three foot putts. We spend the rest of the season looking for that “magic move” that allowed us to play so great for a brief stretch. In Hebrews 10:11, the scripture speaks of those who continue to search for other means for the atonement of sin. “And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices which can never take away sins:” Thankfully, Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, was crucified on a cross and rose again on that third appointed day. He was the perfect sacrifice! Nothing more will be done and thankfully nothing more has to be done. If any of the four aspects mentioned above were not true, we would have had no hope of salvation. As perfect as we could try to live under the law and offer sacrifice after sacrifice, we would be be destined for a devil’s hell. Not only is his life, death and resurrection good enough to live by, they are good enough to die by! If we are sealed by His shed blood, we have been saved, are continuing to be saved daily, and will be ultimately redeemed at our time of departure. My prayer is to be as grateful today for eternal salvation as the day I accepted Christ as my personal Savior. Have you repented of your sins and came by way of faith to Jesus Christ? It isn’t about church membership or religion. It is about a relationship!
