Hebrews 9:14 – Just think how much more the blood of Christ will purify our consciences from sinful deeds so that we can worship the living God. [NLT]
In Luke 22:34, Jesus predicted that Peter would deny Him three times before the rooster crowed, and despite his heartfelt allegiance, Peter made good on Jesus’s bet just a few verses later. From that day forward, I have to think he was reminded of his betrayal every time he heard a bird squawk.
Perhaps there are certain triggers that cause the painful memory of your past sin to come charging back to your remembrance. You may have a flock of crowing roosters that serenades you daily, but you can fry those chickens in the blood of Jesus.
You don’t have to learn to cope with the regrets of what you did outside of Christ. God wants to give you selective amnesia—a type of amnesia in which the victim loses certain parts of his or her memory. Jesus’s blood will purify your conscience from every sinful deed you have ever committed. Then you can worship Him with a clean mind.
