Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,

If someone were to take this scripture out of context, they may assume there’s no sacrifice or forgiveness for a person if they knowingly and intentionally do what’s wrong. They may conclude there’s no forgiveness for the homosexual, adulterer, or the habitual liar because they knowingly live a life contrary to God’s will. That’s NOT TRUE because every sin we commit is knowingly and intentionally.

This scripture is referring to the sin of unbelief. If a person has heard the genuine Gospel of Jesus Christ and still chooses not to believe in Him as Lord, there remains no sacrifice for their sins. There’s no sacrifice/forgiveness for their sins because they rejected the payment (Jesus) for sins.

When we accept the payment of Jesus as Lord, we receive full coverage for sins (Rom. 6:10). Every sin that we’ll ever commit has been covered by this payment. There’s not one thing we can do that’s not covered. This is not a license to sin but, this is an assurance that if we sin, forgiveness has already been made available for us.

Don’t allow condemnation to set in your hearts. God’s forgiveness encompasses all.

Romans 6:10 The death He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life He lives, He lives to God. 11 So you too must count yourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
