"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Hebrews 8 & 9
For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with the ashes of a heifer, sanctify for the purification of the flesh, 14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.

Understanding the significance of the cross can be difficult at times. It's about freedom from sin and death but I get that, but why do I still struggle and why is my conscious at times still so guilty and frail? What does Christ do for us through creating a New Covenant that the Old Covenant could not do? If you are struggling with what the covenants, the sacrifices, the priests, the lambs, and the blood of Christ and what that is all about, please make it a point to join us as we worship together through Hebrews 8 and 9. This passage is so beautiful and has a promise that not only gets to our heart but also our mental health.
