“But when Christ appeared as a high priest ... he entered once for all into the holy places, ... by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.” (Hebrews 9:11–12, ESV)
Under the old system, a priest entered the holy places as required regularly. This priest entered these sacred places by carrying the blood of goats and bulls. That blood gave him temporary access to the presence of God. And his priestly duty had to be repeated again.
But thanks be to God! Look at what He did. He sent His Son as the better priest, the better sacrifice, and the better blood! Therefore...“Once for all!”
What Jesus did never needs to be done again. Final! Case closed! No one needs to question this again: He has secured eternal redemption through His own blood for us.
Jesus secured for us eternal redemption! He did what no other priest could do. As our great high priest, he entered into the holy place not made with human hands and sprinkled His own blood on the altar of heaven, thus procuring our eternal redemption forever. “Once for all!”
The cup you receive today is to remind you that it is the cup of the New Covenant, His blood shed for you. It is for all people! It covers all sin! And it is secured by Christ alone, “once for all.”
