Friday

Read Hebrews 10:16-25

16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them
   in the days to come, says the Lord:
I will put my laws in their hearts
   and write them on their minds.”

17 And then he says, “I will not remember their sins and evil deeds any longer.” 18 So when these have been forgiven, an offering to take away sins is no longer needed.

19 We have, then, my friends, complete freedom to go into the Most Holy Place by means of the death of Jesus. 20 He opened for us a new way, a living way, through the curtain—that is, through his own body. 21 We have a great priest in charge of the house of God. 22 So let us come near to God with a sincere heart and a sure faith, with hearts that have been purified from a guilty conscience and with bodies washed with clean water. 23 Let us hold on firmly to the hope we profess, because we can trust God to keep his promise. 24 Let us be concerned for one another, to help one another to show love and to do good. 25 Let us not give up the habit of meeting together, as some are doing. Instead, let us encourage one another all the more, since you see that the Day of the Lord is coming nearer.

Think

You are invited to live in a close relationship with God; this never depends on who you are, how good you are, how holy you are; it depends on God's choosing you:
"...come near to God with a sincere heart and a sure faith..."
- Hebrews 10:22

Pray

Help me to draw closer and closer to you O Lord.
