Access to God and Clean Consciencesâ€” Only Through the Blood of Christ!
Main Idea: The blood of Christ gives us access to God and clean consciences!
â€¢ God sent Christ to give us access to God (11-12) ïƒž Christ appeared as our High Priest (11-12) ïƒž Came through the greater and more perfect tent (11b) ïƒž He entered once for all into the holy places (12a) ïƒž He entered by means of His own blood (12b) ïƒž He secured our eternal redemption (12c)
â€¢ Christ purifies our conscience to serve the living God (13-14)
ïƒž The Old Covenant (13) ïƒ Blood of goats and bulls (Day of Atonement) ïƒ Sprinkling of defiled people with red heifer ashes (occasional sacrifices)
ïƒž The New Covenant (14) ïƒ The blood of Christ ïƒ Through the eternal Spirit ïƒ Offered Himself to God ïƒ Without blemish ïƒ To purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God
We can be free of guilt though the blood of Christ! We can have access to God through the blood of Christ! Will we trust in Christâ€™s completed, once-for-all sacrifice?
