Cleansing rituals

For the gifts and sacrifices that the priests offer are not able to cleanse the consciences of the people who bring them. For that old system deals only with food and drink and various cleansing ceremonies—physical regulations that were in effect only until a better system could be established.  Heb. 9:9-10a

We clean, weed, purge, delete, eliminate, reformat, or visit the spa. Our cleansing rituals require doing on our part. To clean our souls Jesus did the doing part. Any good we do is because He  made us clean, not so we can get clean.

Jesus, without ritual or ceremony,  just be the “because”  in my life.
