Hebrews 9:11-15
But when Christ came as the high priest of the good things we now have, he entered the greater and more perfect tent. It is not made by humans and does not belong to this world. Christ entered the Most Holy Place only once—and for all time. He did not take with him the blood of goats and calves. His sacrifice was his own blood, and by it he set us free from sin forever. The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a cow are sprinkled on the people who are unclean, and this makes their bodies clean again. How much more is done by the blood of Christ. He offered himself through the eternal Spirit as a perfect sacrifice to God. His blood will make our consciences pure from useless acts so we may serve the living God.

For this reason Christ brings a new agreement from God to his people. Those who are called by God can now receive the blessings he has promised, blessings that will last forever. They can have those things because Christ died so that the people who lived under the first agreement could be set free from sin.
(New Century Version (NCV))

Loving Divine Family,

We enter your sacred prayer space to hear your voice and feel your peace. You have gone before us to prepare everything in advance. We have all we need because you know us so intimately. You have removed the old religious ways, the man-made requirements for pleasing God. You show us your new way.

Thank you, Jesus Christ, our Redeemer, for entering the Most Holy Place and being the ultimate sacrifice for us. Thank you that you set us free from sin forever. Your blood makes our consciences pure. You won the battle of our minds. Praise to you.

I seek you and your ways today, LORD, and thank you for…

You are the way, the truth, and the life. We long to stay in your holy tent with you, to hear your wisdom and dialogue with you and each other. Your ways are perfect peace. Your love surrounds us. We follow your new ways and are blessed.

With joy, we praise you!

Amen!

Cherie and Donovan Mutschler
