Scripture.  How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the Eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the Living God?  Hebrews 9:14  KJV
 
The author of Hebrews is deemed to be unknown by scholars although most have a preferential choice, many naming Paul.  But there is no known proof to date.
 
The Book of Hebrews is one that we should hold in great reverence as it sets out  proof through using the old testament scriptures, to prove the fulfillment of God's Law by Jesus, thereby acknowledging that He is the Messiah.
 
God, The Word, gave to holy men of ancient times, the prophecy that the Messiah was to come, and they recorded these Holy words and they were fulfilled by Jesus.
 
Nothing compares with what God has done for us in Jesus's birth, death and resurrection.
 
We are sinners. 
 
We lie, cheat, steal, and kill and blaspheme Almighty God.  We have no good in us God says, except we have Christ in us, then it is His Goodness which we wear.
 
God tells us that the Blood of Christ will purge us of our sins.  We are made clean before God by the shedding of blood by the ultimate sacrificial Lamb, God's Son, Jesus.
 
Many will not accept this. 
 
Why? 
 
Intellectual arrogance - smarter than God, feigned ignorance - the world is not the handiwork of God, rebelliousness - not wanting any authority, cunning - scheming to slide in the door of heaven on a technicality, coveteousness of riches, these are some reasons mentioned in God's Word.
 
God is aware of it all.  It is written (recorded) to your account, what your thoughts and actions have been regarding the Son who came to save you.
 
Now is the acceptable time to make it right. Accept the gift of Salvation and live a life pleasing to God.
 
Prayer
Lord, thank You for the Blood of Christ that covers my sin and makes me clean before You. Help me to grow into the person You would have me to be, and forgive my sins. Help me to see life and creation through the eyes of Jesus, so I may grow in spiritual knowledge. Help me to see your hand at work for me in the little blessings that you bestow on me for belief in the Son who came to save me from the workers of iniquity and the punishment that is just.
