Happy Monday! Today’s message covers the process of the first covenant. “Now when someone leaves a will, it is necessary to prove that the person who made it is dead. The will goes into effect only after the person’s death. While the person who made it is still alive, the will cannot be put into effect. That is why even the first covenant was put into effect with the blood of an animal. For after Moses had read each of God’s commandments to all the people, he took the blood of calves and goats, along with water, and sprinkled both the book of God’s law and all the people, using hyssop branches and scarlet wool. Then he said, “This blood confirms the covenant God has made with you.” And in the same way, he sprinkled blood on the Tabernacle and on everything used for worship. In fact, according to the law of Moses, nearly everything was purified with blood. For without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness.” Hebrews 9:16-22 NLT
Lord, thank you for shedding your blood on the cross and dying for our sins. Your blood is the only sacrifice that ensures, if we confess with our mouths that you are Lord, and believe in heart that you died and rose from the grave, and accept Christ as our personal savior, our sins will be forgiven. Thank you for your willingness to die in our place. Lord, be with us today as some go to work, school, etc. Help us to recognize your presence in our lives, and give you the praise and glory you deserve. Encourage our hearts, strengthen our faith, and direct our steps. In Jesus name, Amen!
Keep seeking! Keep praying! Keep trusting!
