Arrow The Only Conscience-Cleanser

The Only Conscience-Cleanser
How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God. (Hebrews 9:14)
Here we are in the modern age — the age of the Internet, smartphones, space travel, and heart transplants — and our problem is fundamentally the same as always: Our consciences condemn us and make us feel unacceptable to God. We are alienated from God. And our consciences bear witness.
We can cut ourselves, or throw our children in the sacred river, or give a million dollars to charity, or serve in a soup kitchen, or a hundred forms of penance or self-injury, and the result will be the same: The stain remains and death terrifies.
We know that our conscience is defiled — not with external things like touching a corpse, a dirty diaper, or a piece of pork. Jesus said it is what comes out of a man that defiles, not what goes in (Mark 7:15–23). We are defiled by attitudes like pride and self-pity and bitterness and lust and envy and jealousy and covetousness and apathy and fear.
The only answer in this modern age, as in every other age, is the blood of Christ. When your conscience rises up and condemns you, where will you turn? Hebrews 9:14 gives you the answer: “How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.”
The answer is: Turn to the blood of Christ. Turn to the only cleansing agent in the universe that can give you relief in life, and peace in death.

There is no question that the blood of Christ is the most precious, valuable gift there is. Many of us fail to understand the value and virtue. There is great power in the blood if we access it. It cleanses our sins, removes the guilt of sin, and restores us to a right relationship with God. There is power in the blood of Jesus to turn every situation into good for those who love Him and who are called according to His purposes.
Found this as I was studying Communion.

Ecclesiastes tells us there is nothing new under the sun. All things, even through the ages of change, remain the same. Men sin and bear witness to their own sinful conscience. The only hope we ever had, still remains today. The blood of Jesus, poured out on the cross to make us clean and deliver us from our own demise. Even in this time when our nation seems to be in the worse state it has ever been and many people appears to be going down very dark and evil paths never seen before, nothing has really changed. Evil exists, and the only solution that ever existed, still exists today. Jesus
Thanks Bro.Bill for the reminder of our only hope!
