Completely Cleansed

Text: The blood of Christ, who had no defect, does even more. Through the eternal Spirit he offered himself to God and cleansed our consciences from the useless things we had done. Now we can serve the living God. Hebrews 9:14 (GWT)

 

I was at a friend’s home recently and a drink spilled on the floor. She hurriedly put a cloth on it to cover it up without actually cleaning it so her husband, who was entering into the kitchen, wouldn’t notice the stain.

We often err in thinking that this is what the blood of Christ does to our sins. The blood didn’t cover our sins, as anything covered can be easily uncovered. The blood cleansed us completely from every sin and its consequence. Yet as authentic as this truth is, it is not automatic. We have to intentionally bring our guilt-ridden lives to Christ, confess our inability to clean up our own conscience by our own efforts, and then receive and thank Him for His total deliverance.

When we completely abandon the futility of sinful deeds and allow the blood of Christ to sanctify our conscience, this is when we begin to rise as one who lives a life that is rich, full and successful.

LEARN and APPLY: Christ can completely heal your conscience and deliver you from the frustration of trying to earn God’s favour. Let Him have the right of way in all of your life today.

Pray: Precious Jesus, I thank You for your blood and the unlimited access it gives me into God’s presence. I ask that the eternal life of Christ in me be visible in every area of my life. Amen!
