Hunger for His Word

The sacrifice of Himself!

“But now He has appeared one time, at the end of the ages, to remove sin bythe sacrifice of Himself!” Hebrews 9:26

These rich words still amaze me.

That word “sin” feels weighty to a sensible sinner.

But oh! that word “Himself!” seems a million times more weighty!

“Himself!” the mighty God, the precious Man Christ Jesus!

“Himself!” by whom all things were created, and for whom they exist!

“Himself!” whose smile is heaven, whose frown is hell!

“Himself!” whom all angels worship, and all devils obey!

“Himself!” the sacrifice!

Another such sacrifice could not be found! Sins as deep as hell and as high as heaven cannot overmatch it–for it is infinite! Sins of scarlet and crimson dye cannot resist its power–for it makes them whiter than snow!

See as as much as you can of the vileness of self, and the demerit of sin–yet “Himself” a bleeding sacrifice, exceeds it all! Here is the sweet-smelling savor, both to the Lawgiver and the lawbreaker. The Lawgiver is honored–the lawbreaker is saved!

See how He stands most lovingly, as with open arms, saying to every laboring, weary, heavy-laden sinner, “Come! Come unto Me, and I will give you rest! I still receive sinners, to the uttermost I save them, and never am weary of healing their backslidings, forgiving all their iniquities, and multiplying pardons–as they multiply transgressions against Me. I blot all out with My blood, and love them freely and forever!”

Sinner, will not this suffice? It will, if the Spirit applies it–and opens in a little measure, Himself and His sacrifice–in contrast to yourself and your sins. It will take eternity to know it fully; but that your heart may find rest and refreshing in it now, is my affectionate prayer.

“But now He has appeared one time, at the end of the ages, to remove sin by the sacrifice of Himself!

“Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets,  but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.” – Hebrews 1:1-4 ESV

Hallelujah! What a great and magnificent savior Jesus is!
