If it works you only need to do it once. God forgives you only ONCE but that ONE TIME is forever!
Hebrews 10:11-15 (New International Version)
11 Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12 But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God. 13 Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool, 14 because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
We know that Jesus intercedes for us. However, I thought that He prays for our forgiveness every time we sin. I was wrong.
If He does, He would get up and sit down repeatedly because of my repeated sins. Hebrews 10 tells us He sat down and is still sitting down. He intercedes by being seated. This means the work is done. By this finished work, He continues to remind God of our forgiveness. God forgave us because Jesus’ work is complete. He forgave us at the cross once for all, not every time we sin.
He forgave us and that forgiveness is everlasting. Jesus sat down and is still sitting down. He finished the work. His work lasts forever. The Father’s forgiveness is given once: forever! Be blessed and fall in worship to your seated Saviour.
Jesus sat down when He offered himself that once. When it is perfect you only need to do it once. I realize that God’s forgiveness is not given out every time we sin. Similarly, the Father’s oath to forgive although made once, lasts forever. He forgave once but for all time. We in Christ have been forgiven ONCE for ALL. Your forgiveness is forever because it is perfect. Forgive yourself and be free!

The forgiveness of your sins is a DONE DEAL!
