“Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus … let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.” Hebrews 10:19,22
Christ has forever purged our sins by Himself: “For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified” (Hebrews 10:14). To this sprinkling of the blood of Christ, all believers, even the weakest, are to come, in order to receive the forgiveness of sins. The blood is said to be sprinkled to show the need of its application to the conscience by the Holy Spirit. In this purple fountain the believer daily washes. It is the fountain wherein he is purified from sin and from uncleanness; it is his element and life. Thus he “lives by faith in the Son of God,” who also loved him, always pleading His merits before his heavenly Father, Thus he keeps his conscience pure and easy.
My soul, draw near to God through Jesus; stand not at a distance, as the poor publican did. You have liberty given you through the blood of Jesus to draw near. Your God and Father invites you near and loves to see you draw near unto Him. Draw near and confess your sin. Obtain a pardon, and find grace to help you in every time of need.
Precious blood of Jesus, I will rejoice in your merit and efficacy in life, in death, and forever!
