in full assurance of faith

Hebrews 10:21-22 (ESV)

21 … and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

As believers we can approach the throne of God secure not in our own “righteousness” but in the “righteousness” that comes from through “faith in Christ” (Philippians 3:9).

For His blood has made us “new”. We are “created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness” (Ephesians 4:24).

His blood has removed any stain or “blemish” of sin, making our hearts “clean” in the sight of God (Philippians 2:15).

His blood has “washed” us and cleansed us.

Thus we can rest assured upon God’s “promise” to us: the “promise [that rests] on grace” (Galatians 3:22, Romans 4:16).

prayer : thank you for the gift of faith

action : “draw near” to God every day, thanking Him and asking Him to do His “will” (Matthew 6:10)
