But One Sacrifice and No Other

So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation. – Hebrews 9:28

Jesus died to finish transgression and make an end of sin. Our Lord made atonement for sin when He died- the just for the unjust: He made peace for us when the chastisement of our peace was upon Him. When the LORD had laid upon Him the iniquity of us all, divine wrath fell upon Him on account of our sins, until He cried, “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” Then sin was put away. There, but never anywhere else, was full atonement presented, and iniquity was blotted out. There is no other place of expiation for sin but the place of our Lord’s sacrifice of Himself. Believing in Him that died on the cross, our sins are put away; but without faith in Him there is no remission of sin. Beyond our Lord’s, other sacrifice there is none; other sacrifice there will never be. If any of you here are entertaining some “larger hope”, I would say to you, Hope what you please; but remember, that hope without truth at the bottom of it, is an anchor without a holdfast. A groundless hope is a mere delusion. Wish what you will; but wishes without promises from God to back them, are vain imaginings. Why should you imagine or wish for another method of salvation? Rest you assured that the Lord God thinks so highly of the one sacrifice for sin, that for you to desire another is evil in His sight. If you reject the one sacrifice of the Son of God, there remains no hope for you; nor ought there to be. Our Lord’s way of putting away sin is so just to God, so honoring to the law, and so safe for you, that if you reject it your blood must be on your own head…Blessed be the name of the Lord, the sin of the world, which kept God from dealing with men at all, was put away by our Lord’s death! ~ C.H. Spurgeon
