I love it. Yesterday in our service the pastor was preaching on the holy communion. This is always the time I'm afraid that I'll be encouraged to remember my sin, but not so with this awesome man, whom I get to call my co-worker. No, this man always brings us back to in Jesus. And so he reads from Hebrews 10.
For by a single offering He has forever completely cleansed and perfected those who are consecrated and made holy. (Verse 14.)
Hah. There is not much arguing with "forever completely". Pretty strong words. And so he asks us, "Do you know how glorious you are?" And I see how uncomfortable it is to some, but I know this is the truth that sets people free to live a better, worthier kind of life. I know this is the truth that sets people free from the desire to visit our neighbors (the brothels). I know this is the truth that will help the people without a home upgrade their lives. I know this is the truth that will make people treat each other better - like kings and queens.
Not what we have thought of ourselves, but our true identity. I am perfect and glorious.
