Hope for Imperfect Christians

By a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified. (Hebrews 10:14)

This verse is full of encouragement for imperfect sinners such as us, and filled with motivation for holiness.

This means that you can have assurance that you stand researched and completed in the opinion of your heavenly Father not because you are perfect today, but precisely because you are not perfect today but are”being sanctified,””being made holy” — that, by faith in God’s promises, you are moving away from the lingering imperfection toward more and more holiness. That’s the point of Hebrews 10:14.

Does your faith make you eager to forsake sin and make progress in holiness? That’s the kind of faith that in the middle of imperfection can look to Christ and say,”You have already perfected me on your sight.”

However, I hate my sin. For you have written the law in my heart, and that I long to do it. And you are working in me what is pleasing in your sight (Hebrews 13:21). And therefore, I hate the sin that I still do; and that I hate the sinful ideas that I contemplate.”

This is the authentic and realistic faith that saves. This is the faith that can savor the words,”With a single offering he has perfected for all time individuals who are being sanctified.”

This really isn’t the boast of this powerful. It is the cry of those weak in need of a Savior.

I invite you, I urge you, to be weak enough to trust Christ in this way.
