Passage: Hebrews 10:11-25 (RSV)

Hebrews 10

11And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.
12But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God,
13then to wait until his enemies should be made a stool for his feet.
14For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.
15And the Holy Spirit also bears witness to us; for after saying,
16"This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds,"
17then he adds, "I will remember their sins and their misdeeds no more."
18Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin.
19Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus,
20by the new and living way which he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh,
21and since we have a great priest over the house of God,
22let 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.
23Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful;
24and let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,
25not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
