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. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
This morning’s devotion points us to the cross. The writer of Hebrews encourages his readers to “hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful”.
As I am writing this devotion it is snowing outside and we are worried about the state of the roads as we have to go on a journey in the car. If we start swerving down the road it is dangerous and we could easily go off course.
We have been washed clean from all of our sin by the blood of Jesus – He died on the cross and rose again so we could have forgiveness and life. This morning, hold on to the hope you have. Don’t swerve off course, because it is dangerous and you will miss God’s best.
