Hebrews 10:14 – Purified to Serve

Today’s Reading: Ezekiel 20:1‐49, Hebrews 9:11‐28, Psalm 107:1‐43, Proverbs 27:11

Context: The author of Hebrews has been telling the story of how much greater Christ is – sacrifice, priest, covenant, etc.  He argues that if the blood of goats, bulls and heifers help purify, then…

Hebrews 9:14 “…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.”

Observations

  • Christ’s blood will purify our conscience from dead works
    • To serve the living God.

God’s work in us is about him.  His work in our purification which will produce works of his glorification.

Apply: “Father, I know that anything good that is my past, present and future is from you, through you, and for you (Romans 11:36).  Purify me through your blood to enable me to serve.”

Are you trying to serve God apart from the purifying work of Christ’s blood?
