From a Park Bench - Hebrews 10 v 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” – Hebrews 10 v 22.

We have been made clean, our old evil conscious has been washed with the pure water of God and we are holy before God. This cleansing is eternal; an everlasting stream of holy water that has made us anew.

We can draw near to God because his righteousness is now our righteousness and if and when we sin we still remain clothed in the righteousness of God.

To continue to sin and not to enjoy the wonderful lavish grace of God is silly. Sin does have consequences in our lives; it dulls us to the whisper of God, hardens our hearts so we find it difficult to hear from God, opens a door to the Devil’s lies and makes us more sensitive to sin than to our new creation spirit.

I can be lead away by temptation, but temptation‘s comes in when I let the door of my thinking open to the wrong influences. What I mediate on and fill my mind with is what I treasure.  I am eternal accepted, forgiven and holy in Christ, nothing can alter God’s acceptance of me, but I can dull myself with listening to worldly wisdom, negative news, carnal ideas, all theses cause in me worry and fear.

The truth is found in the spirit that awakens inside of me and the word of God that is God’s love letter of truth to guide me.

The glorious triune God dances and reigns inside every believer and his goodness and grace are fountains of eternal water that overflow towards me. I am the joy and delight of my eternal father.

  1. paragraph four...where you talk about the consequences of sin...the not hearing gods voice...very poignant, as these are things we dont think about in the moment of temptation or when we start out on that slippery slope...
