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.”


  • 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?
