July 25

This is how good God is, He doesn’t want you to suffer from a guilty conscience. I’ve been doing a lite study of Hebrews, and the writer is trying to make it clear that the temple and the sacrificial offerings that were required of Israel, were all symbolic. It was a living example of what was to come. One of the points that He stresses is that they were all human based and that the only way to truly clear your conscience is through the sacrificial offering of Jesus. Though He was of human flesh, He is God, and there was no purer blood. Only His blood can completely wash away your sin. If you are still feeling guilty over an action you took, it’s time for you to give it over to Jesus, once and for all. Stop carrying it around! He wants you to be free of it. There are too many people out there who don’t know Jesus and are suffering from guilt, and they need to know that it’s possible to live without it. If you, who know Jesus, are still carrying around your past, how are you going to convince anyone to trust Jesus?

(which is symbolic for the present age). According to this arrangement, gifts and sacrifices are offered that cannot perfect the conscience of the worshiper, Hebrews 9:9

how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God. Hebrews 9:14
