THE CLEANSING OF OUR CONSCIENCE
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.
Many of us carry our past with us after we come to Christ. Our past sins, disappointments, offenses, and trauma can haunt us for the rest of our lives. The blood of Jesus is not only settling a legal debt that mankind owes, it also effects our conscience in a dramatic way. When we come into the Lord’s presence, which is made possible by His blood, there is a powerful healing and cleansing that takes place. It is as if our whole emotional being is washed clean from all of the effects the world has had upon throughout our lives. The power that our past had on us is broken. We are no longer carrying the past guilt, shame, fear, hurt, anger, and pain. Those things that dominated our thoughts for so long are no longer an issue. We have come to the cross and left our pains there. Our conscience is clean because of the precious blood of Our Savior Jesus Christ.
