Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

– Hebrews 9:27-28 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

The Bible tells us that we only have one chance in this life. All of us will stand before God at the great judgment. This is why we need a Savior, for without Christ we will stand before God with only our deeds and the intents of our heart. The good news tells us that, for those in Jesus Christ, God does not hold us to our deeds and intents, but Christ’s deeds and intents. This is what justified means. Christ’s record stands in place of ours.
