How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!

Salvation is a Trinitarian experience. Note how each member of the Godhead is mentioned in this verse. We see God, Christ and the Spirit working in co-operation to make our cleansing possible.

If we ever wonder how Jesus could have gone through all the physical, mental and spiritual anguish of the Cross, the answer is that it was ”through the eternal Spirit”.

This same Spirit lives in every believer and will strengthen us to face each lesser trial. We will never have to go through anything that comes close to what Jesus suffered, but we do walk the way of the Cross. How good to know we are not alone.

 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you (John 14:18).
