A daily Devotion for Tuesday, May 2

Hebrews 10:19-22

Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.

This (very long) sentence is so perfect and so complete. Jesus gave up his body which tore the curtain separating us from God. We are the recipients of this gift of grace. It is not a ticket to a life of sin with no consequences. It is the assurance of forgiveness, when we live as Christian believers. When we go to God and repent of our sins, we will be forgiven. Knowing this, we can live boldly as God's people. We will know when there is more to do, because we are living our lives loving one another. When we hurt someone, they deserve an apology and we should make amends the best we can. But in the end, we are forgiven by God.

Holy Lord, thank you for your abundant grace. I do try to live up to Jesus' teachings, but I know I fail. You know my heart, and what I long for. Forgive me for my sins, I pray. Amen

Becky, transforming
