19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings..
Thank you, Jesus, for opening the pathway to God’s mercy and grace. I affirm my sincere intention to embrace God’s will over my own.
This passage includes quotes from the Book of Jeremiah nearly 700 years prior. Jesus’ life, death and resurrection were the expression of God’s mercy and grace that Jeremiah predicted. Standing between us and our God, Jesus opened the pathway for all of us to enter God’s holy presence, be reconciled with our Creator and restored to everlasting life. All that is required of us is a sincere intention to embrace God’s will over our own.
