Nothing else is required to pay for our salvation. It has been completed by Jesus.
To be saved, all we must do is believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for our sins.
If you have questions, there is more about Jesus and our salvation here
Commentary from the In Touch devotional by Charles Stanley, May 18, 2020.
Salvation is not an end in itself. The believer has been freed from sin to serve God, saved to serve.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Hebrews 9:14.
This verse is filled with the language of substitution. The Servant suffered not for His own sin, since He was sinless (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26), but as the substitute for sinners. The emphasis here is on Christ being the substitute recipient of God’s wrath on sinners (2 Corin 5:21; Galatians 1:3,4; Hebrews 10:9,10). He suffered the chastisement of God in order to procure our peace with God. The stripe that caused His death has brought salvation to those for whose sins He died. Peter confirms this in 1 Peter 2:24.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Isaiah 53:5.
As seen throughout the book of Hebrews, sacrifices were extremely important under the Old Covenant. Under the New Covenant, God desires the praise and thanksgiving of His people rather than offerings of animals or grain. Since New Testament believers are priests (1 Peter 2:5,9), they have offerings of praise and thanks to God (Romans 12:1).
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Hebrews 13:15.
The praise and thanks from the lips of God’s people must be followed by loving action.
Have a wonderful weekend!
If all that we can do is remember the sacrifice of others, and be grateful, we should. Spilled blood is much too great a sacrifice to be indifferent about. This is no mediocre sacrifice-really, there is no greater sacrifice.
“His humility is our salvation. His salvation is our humility.” Andrew Murray
There is only one way to be pardoned from the dues owed from sinning, be made acceptable to God, and finally reconciled to the One who created you-to be set free-it is only through Jesus.
Jesus told him, “I am the way,
and the life.
No one comes to the Father
except through Me.”
