“Y luego añade: «Y nunca más me acordaré de sus pecados y transgresiones.”
Hebreos 10:17

“Él, por medio de una sola ofrenda, hizo perfectos para siempre a los santificados.”
Hebreos 10.14

Es algo curioso de parte de nuestro Padre celestial, no nos ve como somos en este momento, El nos ve como seremos al final y sin embargo ya nos aprecia de esa forma.

Nota que la palabra no es mejor.  No es mejorando.  No es en alza.  Dios no mejora: perfecciona.  No amplía: completa.

Comprendo que hay un sentido en el cual somos imperfectos.  Todavía cometemos errores.  Todavía tropezamos. Todavía hacemos exactamente lo que no queremos hacer.  Y esa parte de nosotros es, de acuerdo con este pasaje, lo «a los santificados».

Pero cuando se refiere a nuestra posición delante de Dios, somos perfectos.  Cuando nos ve a cada uno de nosotros, ve a uno que ha sido hecho perfecto mediante Uno que es perfecto: Jesucristo. ¡Vívelo!

“Then he adds: ‘Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.’”
(Hebrews 10:17)

“’. . .because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.’”
(Hebrews 10:14)

It’s very interesting that our Heavenly Father doesn’t see us how we actually are at this moment.  He sees us as we will be at the end of our life on this earth.  And yet, He appreciates us as we are now.

Note the word “perfect” that describes us in Hebrews 10:14.  Not better nor getting better.  It does not mean we are rising to perfection.  God doesn’t improve; He is perfect.  He doesn’t grow; He is complete.

As we view ourselves, we see that we are imperfect.  We still make mistakes.  We still stumble and fall flat on our faces.  It’s not what we want to do, but we do.  According to Hebrews 10:14, that part of us is “holy” or “sanctified.”  In the Webster’s New World Dictionary, sanctified means “to set apart as holy; consecrate; to make free from sin.”  In the Bible Dictionary, it says that sanctification is a process that begins when one becomes a Christian and concludes when Jesus returns or when we go to be with Him; all Christians are sanctified; it is part of God’s plan; it is God’s cleansing process to make a person whole and like Jesus; it affects both character and conduct.

When it comes to our position before God, we are perfect.  When He sees each one of us, He sees us as one who has been perfected by One who is perfect--Jesus Christ.  Live it!!
