Hebrews 9:14–How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our conscience from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
People have been trying all kinds of ways to be made right with God. Throughout the years, multiple efforts and works have been tried to see what would make the “gods” happy. God gave the people of Israel a plan of sacrifice, but even that was insufficient as it had to be continually repeated. Now, God is explaining that Jesus Christ perfected the sacrificial system. He offered Himself as the perfect and pure sacrifice and so, through Him, we are able to receive forgiveness from our sins that would otherwise lead to death. Through Jesus, we have a clear conscience and are able to serve and worship a living and holy God. Are we serving and living out our devotion to the living God?
Father, I know that You are able to do all things and I praise You for creating a way for me to be cleansed from the sins that I have done. I will seek You first and I will strive to serve You more and more every day.
