The Earthly and the Heavenly

Trace with the sacred writer the comparison between the old and new covenants, the earthly, and the heavenly. What is of earth is external, bound to time and repetition, as the example given of the once-a-year entry into the Holy of Holies of the Jewish priest. The heavenly is beyond time and space. What happens in heaven happens once and for all. So it is that Jesus, clothed with humanity and divinity as well, blends both priest and victim, offering his own blood in the heavenly sanctuary. At once, he gathers all of us with him in permanent and perpetual atonement.

Live this day more conscious of the heavenly realm where God calls you to live right now—not only when you die. Moments of silence will help you be aware of the present and perpetual shower of God’s healing grace upon you.
