every priest goes to work
at the alter each day
offers the same old sacrifices
year in
year out
and never makes a dent in the sin problem

as a priest
Christ made a single sacrifice for sins
and that was it!

then he sat down right beside God
and waited for his enemies to cave in

it was a perfect sacrifice
by a perfect person
to perfect some very imperfect people

by that single offering
he did everything that needed to be done
for everyone who takes part
in the purifying process

“this new plan i’m making with israel
isn’t going to be written on paper
isn’t going to be chiseled in stone
this time i’m writing out the plan
in them
carving it on the lining of their hearts

i will forever wipe the slate clean
of their sins”
