Hebrews 12:24

“…and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. “

The Hebrew Christians have come to God via Mount Zion, not Mount Sinai. They have come to God’s Holy City, the heavenly Jerusalem, not to an earthly place. They have come to celebrating angels rather than eagles’ wings. They have come to the assembly of the saints where there is rejoicing, not fear, and trembling. They have come to God, the judge of all humanity, and they have done so with confidence, not dread. They have come to God’s people who have been made perfect in the blood of Jesus, not to an earthly tribe who rebelled and lived in their sins.

They have come to Jesus, who brought a new (and better) covenant, not to Moses, whose covenant was the means of death. They have come to the sprinkled blood that brings salvation, forgiveness, and reconciliation, not to a sprinkling of animal blood that could not bring salvation. They have come to the blood that brings a word of cleansing and peace, not to the blood that cries for vindication against murder.

Task for Today: Come to Jesus! Live under the blood of forgiveness, where access to the city of God is found. Today, while it is still called today, come to the assembly of the firstborn. Let that blood make you perfect in the Lamb.
