Sin, sin, sin; this seems to be what the body of Christ wants to talk about all the time.
We are told it is what is holding back the blessings of God from being made manifest in our lives, it is what we need to think about during communion, and on and on I could go.
But this verse, in a passage contrasting the old and new covenants, is telling us that we, as new covenant believers, should not be thinking about sin any more.
We should have no more conscience of sin (Hebrews 10 v 2).
Under the old covenant the sacrifices had to be made again and again, and in this context the worshippers had to be aware of their sin.
Under the new covenant Jesus has paid for ALL the sin of ALL people for ALL time (Hebrews 10 v 12 and 14).
Under the old covenant sin had to be dealt with again and again and again.
Under the new covenant sin has already been dealt with.
So with regards to the payment for sin we do not need to give it a second thought.
Instead of being focussed on sin (as most of us in the church seem to be) we should retune our focus onto the Son, the man (and God) who has brought about our reconciliation and our forgiveness through His finished work.
Think about the Son, be Son conscious and as you focus on Jesus you will see your life change.
Your life will not improve if you are always thinking about sin; remember what we focus on in our mind is enlarged in our life.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus and thank you that all my sins have been forgiven through the blood of Jesus”.
Hebrews 10 v 2…..For then would they not have ceased to be offered? Because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sin
