As I’m writing this, it’s still Yom Kippur. The day of atonement. Praise God we can know Him because of what Jesus did for us on the cross.
9 We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. 10 For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. 11 So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
26 For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens. 27 He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of the people, since he did this once for all when he offered up himself. Hebrews 7:26-27
12 he entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.
English Standard Version, Romans 6:9-11; Hebrews 7:26-27; Hebrews 9:12
That’s it. That’s the best news ever.
On a side note, next year’s Yom Kippur will be in October. I looked it up. Because… ready? We’ll be IN ISRAEL next year!
This past week I secured our spot for a group trip to Israel, Oct 3 -12ish. Because we’re over a year out, we can’t secure all the details just yet, flights, schedules, etc. But, the good news is, you can NOW pencil in those dates and start saving! More details will come as we get closer, but please feel free to pass this on and make sure you save your spot! Can’t wait!
