The priests do their work each day, and they keep on offering sacrifices that can never take away sins. But Christ offered himself as a sacrifice that is good forever. Now he is sitting at God’s right side, and he will stay there until his enemies are put under his power. By his one sacrifice he has forever set free from sin the people he brings to God.
One of the best things about Heaven is the truth that we will be "forever set free from sin!" As followers of Jesus here on this earth we are not under the power of sin and we are free to live without sinning, but sin is still an option on this earth!
The Bible never says that in Heaven we will be tempted to sin as we are here on this earth. Satan will not be roaming around Heaven looking for someone to trip up and cause them to sin!
Every moment of the life of the most dedicated follower of Jesus here on this earth presents him or her with some way to sin! It is the burden that Adam and Eve passed down to everyone who has ever lived. The Sin Option will be gone for all of Eternity with Jesus! That is a truly glorious and totally peaceful prospect!
So as you wrestle with the temptations that lure your heart away from Jesus, never forget that they are temporary and will not plague you forever! The possibility of sinning will be gone in Heaven!
"Lord Jesus, help me to stand strong against every attempt of the Enemy to draw me away from You on this earth. I long for the day when the Sin Option will be gone from my life, forever! Praise Your Holy Name. Amen."
