Scripture - Hebrews 9

Observation - Only Christ’s blood can truly cleanse us from our sins, only his work on the cross can bring true salvation.

Application - Do you sometimes feel like you need to earn God’s grace and forgiveness? Do you confuse your response of right Living for God as a way to earn his love and salvation? Allow yourself to realize that NOTHING you do can earn forgiveness or salvation. Trust Christ’s work to be our salvation. Live according to his word simply as a response of love towards our savior. He has given his grace so freely to us.

Prayer - God, I know that I am a sinner and have no potential of earning salvation. Instead, I surrender my life and attempts to you- I look to you alone for forgiveness and salvation. Thank you God for making a way for me to be saved. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
