Powerful words from Elizabeth Elliot

In the conscience of all of us sinners there is deadness from our former ways. This has its effect on our present behavior, in ways we little realize, and hinders our fitness for service to God. But there is a remedy: the power of the blood of Christ.

'His blood will cleanse our conscience from the deadness of our former ways and fit us for the service of the living God' (Heb 9:14).

This morning I was troubled about what seemed to be a blockage deep down where I could not get at it. I was glad it was not too deep or too strong for the power of the blood to reach and cleanse. Satan would try to convince me daily that I am full of 'hang-ups' which unfit me for God's service. The blood of Christ is my answer to his challenge. It will never lose its power." - Elliot
