Todd’s sermon was “Atonement”.  
How do we make up for our sin?  How do we make it right? 
The Old Testament celebrated a Day of Atonement, once a year.  Leviticus 23:26-32 and 16:34.
We are no longer under the Old Covenant.  We have a New Covenant.
How does that work?  Hebrews 10:1-10
Jesus!
The day He was crucified, died, and was buried, is our Day of Atonement.
Jesus was our sacrifice.  His sacrifice was sufficient for all the sins of all WHO WOULD BELIEVE IN HIM and claim Him as Lord and Savior.  Hebrews 10:11-18
He did not need to be cleansed because He was Perfect.  Hebrews 7:27

So, God provided the way to Him.  What is our part?  We must be in obedience to Him otherwise the atonement does not apply to us.  1 John 2:3-6. 
Jesus us our great High Priest and his blood…once and for all…atones for our sin.  So, Claim Him, Be obedient to Him, and live the life He has called you to.
