Hebrews 10:14

“For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.” (NASB)


“For by one offering (prosphora: offering up, offered, a gift, a present, sacrifice) He has perfected (teleioo: make perfect, finish, fulfill, be perfect, consecrated, complete, to carry through completely, to accomplish, bring to an end; add what is yet wanting in order to render a thing full; bring to a close or fulfillment by event) for all time those who are sanctified (hagiazo: hallow, be holy; to separate from profane things and dedicate and consecrate things to God; free from the guilt of sin, to purify internally by renewing of the soul).”


For by one sacrifice, Jesus the Christ has fulfilled and made perfect for all time, those who are holy and separated, free from guilt, consecrated to God.


What a powerful verse this is! Christ’s one offering of Himself has perfected me forever! Now I live holy and purified - consecrated to God. Today, lay hold of this great Truth - hold your head up high and know who you are, for you have been perfected once and for all.
