What a Day That Will Be

“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)

Allow the depth of this verse to sink in. Jesus died, not for his own sins, but for yours and mine. His punishment was unearned by him, but yet he stood in our place and received the very thing that was meant for us. He became sin so that we could have life. And as if that wasn’t enough, he died one time for all of us. His sacrifice never had to be repeated; it was more than sufficient to atone for the sins of all mankind. No more blood of bulls and lambs. The blood of the Spotless Lamb was sacrificed once and for all. Our Great High Priest sprinkled the altar once and for all with the blood of the pure sacrifice. “It is finished!” The work of atonement is done.

Now, we have hope—we have a glorious hope to see him return once again in all his majesty to take His people, those who look for His return, unto Himself.

This song by Jim Hill puts everything in perspective this morning! Take a moment out of your busy morning and consider just What a Day That Will Be:

What a Day That Will Be
Jim Hill

There is coming a day when no heartaches shall come
No more clouds in the sky, no more tears to dim the eye
All is peace forevermore on that happy golden shore,
What a day, glorious day that will be.

Chorus:
What a day that will be
When my Jesus I shall see,
And I look upon His face,
The One who saved me by His grace;
When He takes me by the hand
And leads me through the Promised Land,
What a day, glorious day that will be.

There’ll be no sorrow there, no more burdens to bear,
No more sickness, no pain, no more parting over there;
And forever I will be with the One who died for me,
What a day, glorious day that will be.

Chorus:
What a day that will be
When my Jesus I shall see,
And I look upon His face,
The One who saved me by His grace;
When He takes me by the hand
And leads me through the Promised Land,
What a day, glorious day that will be
What a day, glorious day that will be.

Father, as I consider your unselfish sacrifice of love, all I can say is thank you! Thank You for sprinkling me with the atoning blood of the Sacrifice Lamb, for Your ministry of reconciliation wherewith I have been reconciled to You by the blood of the Perfect and Spotless Lamb. Oh Lord, I anticipate your return more every day. As I look and yearn for your coming, I can only imagine what a glorious day that will be. My soul thirsts after you. I need You. I want to see You. I want to be with you forever and ever and ever, amen!
