Light on The Daily Path

The sprinkled blood that speaks of something better than Abel’s does.

[Heb 12:24 NET]

“Look, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” The Lamb who was killed. For the blood of bulls and goats cannot take away sins. So when he came into the world, he said, “Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me. By his will we have been made holy through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

But Abel brought some of the firstborn of his flock – even the fattest of them. And the Lord was pleased with Abel and his offering. Christ also loved us and gave himself for us, a sacrificial and fragrant offering to God.

Let us draw near with a sincere heart in the assurance that faith brings, because we have had our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed in pure water. Therefore, brothers and sisters, … we have confidence to enter the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus.

[John 1:29, Rev 13:8, Heb 10:4-5, Heb 10:10, Gen 4:4, Eph 5:2, Heb 10:22, Heb 10:19]
