16: Christ suffered and died to give us a clear conscience

This is part 16 of 50 in a series based on the book ‘Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die’. Read the introductory post or view all the posts in the series.

Ref: Heb 9:14

No animal blood could cleanse the conscience. They knew it (see Isaiah 53 and Psalm 51). And we know it. So a new high priest comes—Jesus the Son of God—with a better sacrifice: himself. (Page 50)

According to this chapter’s Bible verse, Hebrews 9:14, our consciences have been cleansed in order that we may serve the living God.  Not that so we may live better with ourselves or with others, or any other such reason.That is something I’d never considered.
