And it is by God’s will that we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. Hebrews 10:4-10 What does it mean to be made holy because Christ offered his body as a sacrifice? God has given us the gift to create and we have no doubt taken full advantage of that ability. So much so, that the amount of stimuli in the world easily attracts our attention. God has not asked us to stop creating but rather to create for the fullness of life for one another. I believe life in the resurrection means that we are called out of the bondage of the world’s stimuli. There is no relationship with things or people that can take the place of the relationship God has with us. If we don’t have a relationship with God as a priority in our life, there is no sacrifice of stimuli (things or people) that will make a difference. We are encouraged to think Christ first, live in the resurrection and never stop believing. Nothing is impossible for God.
For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said, ‘Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired, but a body you have prepared for me; in burnt-offerings and sin-offerings you have taken no pleasure. Hebrews 10:4-10
But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33
