“How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”
Dead works are works which we do without being purified by the blood. The works we do for God can bless people, advance His Kingdom, bring glory to His name, and yet, not be acceptable or recorded before God because it was not carried out in the Holy Ghost and the sanctification of the blood of Jesus. Such services do not make it into the heavenly record.
Dead works also refer to the works of self-righteousness. They are referred to as “dead” because they ultimately result in death. More so, all of our own works and labor are worthless and considered dead, if they do not point to the worship of God. They include Lip service of every kind, Eyes service of every kind, Man worship, Mammon worship, joining hands of falsehood, and serving and worshipping with wrong intentions and motive.
So, think and meditate on every way you have traded with dead works. Think about it and be sorry for it. Repent and ask the Lord to forgive and cleanse you with the blood of Jesus.
