Then he said, “This blood confirms the covenant God has made with you.” And in the same way, he sprinkled blood on the Tabernacle and on everything used for worship.
Heb 9:20-21 NLT
In the Old Testament, blood sacrifices were the custom to honor God and demonstrate obedience/worship. In the New Testament, Jesus became the perfect eternal sacrifice for us all.
With both, blood was shed to signify letting go. A release. The sacrifice took the premium or best choice item and gave it up. Plus you had to be willing to get dirty.
Today we aren't always willing to get dirty. To separate from what we think we still want.
Wrapping our mind around the concept of pushing away what we emotionally want to pull in can seem counterintuitive.
Yet, when the right song comes on, supposedly there are a ton of savages out here taking no prisoners.
We're holding the worst things hostage. Stuff we value, but no one is coming or checking for.
If it isn't serving us and we aren't serving it, more than likely the time has come to get dirty and let it go.
Cut it and bleed it out. Be blessed.
