Bible: Hebrews 10:11-22

10:11 And every priest stands day after day 1  serving and offering the same sacrifices again and again – sacrifices that can never take away sins. 10:12 But when this priest 2  had offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, he sat down at the right hand 3  of God, 10:13 where he is now waiting 4  until his enemies are made a footstool for his feet. 5  10:14 For by one offering he has perfected for all time those who are made holy. 10:15 And the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us, for after saying, 6  10:16 This is the covenant that I will establish with them after those days, says the Lord. I will put 7  my laws on their hearts and I will inscribe them on their minds,” 8  10:17 then he says, 9 Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no longer.” 10  10:18 Now where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin.

Drawing Near to God in Enduring Faith

10:19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, 11  since we have confidence to enter the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus, 10:20 by the fresh and living way that he inaugurated for us 12  through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, 13  10:21 and since we have a great priest 14  over the house of God, 10:22 let us draw near with a sincere heart in the assurance that faith brings, 15  because we have had our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience 16  and our bodies washed in pure water.
