THE NEW AND LIVING WAY
19 Therefore, brothers,* since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, 20 by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 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.
The Blood of Jesus opened up heaven for man. Jesus entered heaven with His precious blood as the representative of the human race. He became the first “man” with access into heaven. This is what Hebrews calls the ” new and living way”. We now have access into the presence of the Lord by the blood of Jesus. This is a new way to live our lives. When we first call on His Name we are born again, and become aware of the spiritual world. Now our life really starts. Because of His blood we, are no longer separated from God, but we have come near. Today you can come into the Presence of the Lord. You can taste His heavenly joy reserved only for His sons and daughters. Why not take some time right now to come before the Lord? He has opened up heaven for you. He is calling you to live this new kind of life, life in the Presence of the Lord, the “new and living way”.
