Hebrews 10:12,14 -- But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God....For by one offering He hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.
God sees us with no flaw, spot or imperfection, so we honor His Word and the finished work of Jesus by saying "Amen!"
To see ourselves as being far from perfect is not modesty, but a failure to understand the perfect sacrifice that Jesus has made for us.
The Bible tells us, "For by one offering He hath perfected forever them that are sanctified." We have not only been sanctified, that is, made holy; but by the same offering of His body, we have been perfected. We are both holy and perfect in God's eyes!
1. God sees us perfect without any spot of sin.
2. He sees us covered in the beautiful white robes of His own righteousness.
3. He treats us as a righteous person because that that us what He has made us.
Our sins have been purged perfectly. Today, Jesus is seated at His Father's right hand because His work of purging our sins is completely finished and perfect!
So instead of being conscious of our sins, which is to have an evil conscience (Hebrews 10:22), we can have a perfect conscience -- a conscience that is free from the guilt and condemnation of sins.
Holy Spirit, thank You for convicting me of righteousness, not my own, but God's righteousness given to me as a gift. Keep on convicting me in the days to come, reminding me especially when I fail that I am still the righteousness of God in Christ.
When I find myself conscious of my sins, I say, "Thank You, Lord Jesus, for Your wonderful work at the cross. It is a perfect work that has removed all my sins completely.
I expect good things to happen to me because blessings are on the head of the righteous! (Proverbs 10:6)
I don't doubt my perfection in Christ.
