Many people are sin conscious, because they do not know what the blood of Jesus does. It takes faith to believe that the blood cleanses you from all sin.
11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. (Heb 9:11-12 KJV)
1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. (Heb 10:1-2 KJV)
If God said He gave you eternal redemption, you have to believe it. “But I don’t feel like that!” It has nothing to do with reality. You need to get rid of the conscientiousness of sin (I’m just a sinner saved by grace) and start seeing yourself in victory.
16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; (Heb 10:16 KJV)
I want you to notice: the law is in your heart and in your mind.
19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, (Heb 10:19 KJV)
You are no longer hoping you prayers will be heard, but you have relationships with the Lord and have direct understanding. Men have tendency to go by feelings. But you are saved by His blood, not if you feel it or not. We need to walk by faith in the blood.
Today we will talk about understanding the communion service. What do we have communion for? What are we expecting to accomplish? We will never understand communion until we understand why Jesus wants us to eat Hid flesh and drink His blood.
We were born with sinful nature. There is no one righteous. It took something to get us broke loose from sin. I need to appeal my case before God. We are reconciled to God through the atonement.
10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. (Rom 5:10-11 KJV)
