Good News for Me

I’m on a new schedule where I get up stupidly early to run, then come in reasonably early to work and spend some time in the Word before everything comes to life. This morning I had a really good run (approaching 3 miles, if you’re interested), but that meant that by the time I hit the Bible I was in that euphoric-but-very-tired place that comes about an hour later. Due to my probably-sinful dependance on coffee in the mornings, my brain also wasn’t quite working yet. All that resulted in a shiftless, half-asleep, mind-wandering time of attempted Bible reading and prayer.

Imagine my delight, then, to read the following:

But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God,  waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet.  For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified. (Hebrews 10:12-14)

Thank God my standing with him depends on the finished work of Jesus. If it depended on mine I’d be in a bad way.
