Hebrews 9:11-15 Click on link to read passage. You may select your own version of the Bible after the link opens.

How blessed we are to live under the new covenant! The sacrifices of the old covenant were temporary. They could only make people outwardly clean.

But Jesus became both our sacrificial lamb and our high priest. Because of Jesus’ sinless life, he could be our perfect sacrifice.

Only Jesus can cleanse our hearts and change us from the inside out. Only through Jesus’ cleansing are we able to serve the living God. Jesus became our mediator and high priest. Only Jesus can offer us eternal life through the blood he shed for our atonement. Let us thank him for his priceless gift.
