Take some time each day, over the next three days (Thursday, Friday, & Saturday)  and read the text for this week from the 1662 lectionary.  Ask the Lord to prepare your heart for what He has for you / us at Christ Church, and to have an open heart, mind, and will to receive. 

Hebrews 9:11 – 15    “Jesus, the Great High Priest”  

[11] But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come, then through the greater and more perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation) [12] he entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption. [13] For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with the ashes of a heifer, sanctify for the purification of the flesh, [14] how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.

[15] Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.

(ebrews 9:11-15
