1. The blood gives us entrance to the Most Holy Place, halleluia! This refers of course to the central sanctuary, the place accessed only once a year, only by the High Priest, and only after the shedding of much blood. The Old Covenant practice communicates to us the seriousness of sin and the majesty of God. How much greater then, our appreciation of what the blood of Christ does for us. 2. This new access by the blood of Jesus was consecrated for us by his body. In other words, he has inaugarated and set apart this new approach to God. 3. Verse 21 reminds us that we have not only the great work of Christ in the past, but his on-going priestly ministry. He is still making intercession for us. 4. The central inference is that we can and should draw near to God. The manner in which we draw near to God is with a "true," that is, sincere, heart and full assurance of faith. So this is great news, but not news to be taken lightly. With that full assurance, surely the sincere will draw near to God! Grace makes a way; the sincere seeker will not squander this great grace! 5. The temporal (or perhaps simply circumstantial) clause describes the conditions under which we draw near to the Holy One: after having our hearts cleansed from an evil conscience. We need not only forgiveness to enjoy God, but cleansing. Forgiveness grants pardon, but cleansing removes the defilement that corrupts our hearts and inhibits our perception and enjoyment of God. This is the central experience of the Christian life that leads to actual enjoyment of God.
