But after Christ offered one sacrifice for sins, forever, he sat down at the right side of God.
And now Christ waits there for his enemies to be put under his power.
With one sacrifice he made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
The Holy Spirit also tells us about this. First he says:
"This is the agreementn I will make with them at that time, says the Lord. I will put my teachings in their hearts and write them on their minds."
Then he says: "Their sins and the evil things they do -- I will not remember anymore."
Now when these have been forgiven, there is no more need for a sacrifice for sins.
So, brothers and sisters, we are completely free to enter the Most Holy Place without fear because of the blood of Jesus' death.
We can enter through a new and living way that Jesus opened for us. It leads through the curtain -- Christ's body.
And since we have a great priest over God's house,
let us come near to God with a sincere heart and a sure faith, because we have been made free from a guilty conscience, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.
