The goal of the Father for believers concerning sanctification is that they would have “no more conscience of sins” (Heb 10:2). Saints need not to contemplate their sins since they have been completely and permanently cleared of all the guilt of all their sins—“once for all” (Heb 10:10, 12, 14; 9:12, 28)!

“Because the worshippers, once purged, would have had no more conscience of sins” intends the design that we are not to allow a guilty conscience because of our sins (unless one thinks Christ’s expiation was insufficient to procure all sin), to manifest the impact of being always forgiven, and thus never needing to wallow in the mire of guilt! We can be aware of our sins only enough to identify them and remember the Lord’s expiation for them. There can be a short season of guilt in a babe-in-Christ, but maturity affords the believer growth in Christ (Eph 4:15); and if we maintain any guilt concerning anything at all, we have yet to learn fully God’s forgiveness in Christ.

It is not humility that may keep one thoughtful of one’s sins, but ignorance of the truth that the believer in Christ is in unbroken forgiveness with God when living a life of confession and repentance of sins; and know, it isn’t our obedience, which shows our love for God (Jhn 14:21, 23) that forgiveness is secured, but forgiveness is established by faith in the expiation of Christ’s Cross.

This answers to the fact that we are to “lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us” in order that we might not be “troubled” and “overtaken” in much sadness of heart (Gen 4:13; Gal 6:1; Jhn 14:1, 27). Our sins be as they may, God has provided—through faith in Christ, confession and repentance—“a way of escape, that we may be able to bear it” (1Co 10:13); and all is accounted for concerning all our sins and His all-forging love.

“Because the worshippers, once purged, would have had no more conscience of sins”; there are external and internal worshippers; the latter are such who worship God in Spirit and in truth: but here ceremonial worshippers are meant, who, if they had been really purged from sin by legal sacrifices, and purifications, would have had no more conscience of sins, and so have had no need to have repeated them; as such spiritual worshippers, who are once purged from sin by the Blood and sacrifice of Christ; not that they have no sin, or no sense of sin, or that their consciences are seared, or that they never accuse for sin, or that they are to make no confession and acknowledgment of sin; but that they are discharged from the guilt of sin, and are not liable to condemnation for it; and through the application of the Blood of Christ to them, have peace with God, and joy in the Holy Ghost.”

The Christian life is not our living a life like Christ, or our trying to be Christ-like, nor is it Christ giving us the power to live a life like His; but it is Christ Himself living His own life through us; 'no longer I, but Christ.’” -MJS
