Good morning, Father!
Thank you for this awesome Monday morning, and thank you for the enthusiasm in my heart this morning, excited about art and even a bit about some other things in life right now — like the wonderful weather lately! 😀 Lord, I ask you to be with my husband today as he starts work for a new boss. Give him favor and wisdom and strength of mind and body. Help him to remember to reach out to you and include you in his work, and bless him with your stabilizing presence, Father. Be near him and hear him, Lord. Amen!
Hebrews 10:15-25 ERV
The Holy Spirit also tells us about this. First he says,
“This is the agreement I will make with my people in the future, says the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts. I will write my laws in their minds.”
Then he says, “I will forget their sins and never again remember the evil they have done.”
And after everything is forgiven, there is no more need for a sacrifice to pay for sins.
And so, brothers and sisters, we are completely free to enter the Most Holy Place. We can do this without fear because of the blood sacrifice of Jesus.
We enter through a new way that Jesus opened for us. It is a living way that leads through the curtain–Christ’s body.
And we have a great priest who rules the house of God.
Sprinkled with the blood of Christ, our hearts have been made free from a guilty conscience, and our bodies have been washed with pure water. So come near to God with a sincere heart, full of confidence because of our faith in Christ.
We must hold on to the hope we have, never hesitating to tell people about it. We can trust God to do what he promised.
We should think about each other to see how we can encourage each other to show love and do good works.
We must not quit meeting together, as some are doing. No, we need to keep on encouraging each other. This becomes more and more important as you see the Day getting closer.
Lord, I lift my dear friend in New York up to you, and I ask you to let your Holy Spirit assure her of your Son’s redemptive blood on her heart, and the love and acceptance you have toward her because of THAT — independent of anything she may or may not do or be, herself. Draw her close and cleanse her deeply, Oh Lord. Remind her of who she is in YOU, and set her free from the enemy’s devices that threaten to rob her of your peace and joy. Lead her to your restorative waters of HOPE, Lord. Help her hold on to what she KNOWS about you and your love, and encourage her to continue to share your love with others she meets, so that both she and they may be comforted and encouraged by your Holy Spirit at work. Amen, thank you Lord! Truly you are Faithful! 😀
