I’ve heard people say that if you join this and that organization or religion you will be saved; or, if you follow this or that person, you will go to heaven. But, can any person or any religion really save us?
Hebrews 7 says that Jesus is the perfect High Priest forever. He intercedes with God on our behalf. We have confidence in a better hope with Him, more than what we have for the priests here on earth. Why? Because the law appointed the priests; yet, the law never made anything perfect.
Unlike the priests who offered sacrifices for their sins and then the sins of other people, Jesus didn’t and still doesn’t have to offer sacrifices everyday. He did it once and for all at the Cross when He sacrificed Himself for everybody’s sins. “Therefore He is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through Him” ( Hebrews 7: 25).
No person or religion can save us and make us right with God. Our Lord Jesus alone can do it!
