Hebrews 10:14 – [With one sacrifice] He made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
Hebrews 10:17 – Their sins and the evil things they do, I will not remember anymore.
Underline the word perfect. Note that word is not better…not improving…not on the upswing. God doesn’t merely improve, He perfects! He doesn’t enhance, He completes!
Now, I realize that there’s a sense in which we’re imperfect. We still make mistakes or make the wrong choices…we still stumble. We still do exactly what we don’t want to do (Romans 7: 7-25)! And that part us is, according to Hebrews 10:14, ‘being made holy’.
People with myopia see nearby objects clearly but distant objects appear blurred. With myopia, the images are focused on the inside the eye rather than on the retina at the back of the eye. Optometrists normally correct myopia through the use of glasses or contact lenses.
When it comes to our position before God, we’re perfect. When He looks upon each of us whom He has called, He sees us as one who has been made perfect through the perfecting ‘lens’…through the only one who CAN perfectly correct the ‘sin vision’ of our heavenly Father…Jesus Christ!
