Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.” Hebrews 9:15 (ESV).
The practice of offering a sacrifice to cover for our sins is not an obligation for those adopted by God. Through our faith in Jesus, God’s wonderful provision was made once by Jesus and is for all who belong to His family. Our Bible verse today reminds us of this provision. God has also promised that Jesus will be our go between, our arbitrator before God. Jesus is our perfect mediator. There’s also a promised inheritance for us who belong to His family. Normally inheritances are planned in advance and there is a document to specify what it will be. Well, that is the case with the promise we are considering here. This inheritance, is our salvation in its fullness, nothing lacking. God’s promise is the ‘document’ which seals forever our eternal inheritance. It will never run out, never decay, and never be taken away from us. It is an inheritance more precious than we are able to imagine. Friends, if you have believed in Jesus, you are God’s child. You are free from any condemnation and He is preparing to bring you to heaven where you will forever enjoy what our verse tells us about.
