Our Good Samaritan

His job, as our High Priest, is to gird Himself and actually put our feet in the water and wash us. For us, this looks like coming to Him in “full assurance of faith, having our heart sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our body washed with pure water.” 

"Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water." Heb 10:22

We’re not under condemnation. 

We know that we’re in the holy of holies where nothing is expected of us. We are dead. We offer ourselves to God, and we offer our body to Him and say, “Lord fill me.” You present yourself to Him as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable. This is your reasonable service of worship. 

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." Rom 12:1-2

As a living sacrifice, you are on the altar.

That altar is an “operating table” where our Physician is working, and He’s very gentle about it. He’s healing and satisfying you with living water. He’s not interested in a dramatic outward display. He’s interested in healing and satisfying you within. He’s giving you oil and wine. He’s the Good Samaritan, and you’re the guy lying on the road beaten and bleeding, and He brings you to the “inn” to minister to you. You become strong, not in yourself, but in Him.  Christ eventually is manifested in you.
