Daily devotional: Saved to serve the living God

Scripture
How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
Hebrews 9:14 NIV

Observation
Jesus' sacrifice of His own life for us was perfect. His sacrifice not only removes our sins, but cleanses our consciences--sometimes we need to remember that! And we are saved not just from death, but saved to now serve the living God.

Application
Praise God for salvation through Jesus Christ's death on the cross for me. Remember that my conscience is cleansed by His sacrifice, and remember that I now belong to God and serve Him.

Prayer
Thank you, Jesus, for saving me through Your precious and perfect sacrifice. Thank you for submitting to the Father's will and enduring that tremendous suffering for me. Thank you for not only taking away my sins, but for cleansing my conscience and giving me new life. I choose to serve You. Please use me for Your glory. I love you!
