because he perfected the people who are being made holy with one offering for all time.
The Holy Spirit affirms this when saying,
16This is the covenant that I will make with them. After these days, says the Lord, I will place my laws in their hearts and write them on their minds. 17And I won't remember their sins and their lawless behavior anymore.a18
When there is forgiveness for these things, there is no longer an offering for sin.
Brothers and sisters, we have confidence that we can enter the holy of holies by means of Jesus' blood,
through a new and living way that he opened up for us through the curtain, which is his body,
and we have a great high priest over God's house.
Therefore, let's draw near with a genuine heart with the certainty that our faith gives us, since our hearts are sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies are washed with pure water.
Let's hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, because the one who made the promises is reliable.
Let's also think about how to motivate each other to show love and to do good works.
