God poured out His blood for You. - Bro. T. Stephen
We read in 1 Peter 1:18-19, “For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors. but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect”. It was the blood of Jesus Christ that paid for the sins of the whole world.His blood washes away our sins that has painted our lives, and that has separated us from God. This separation only leads us to a path of destruction but Jesus came for us, He died on the cross for us, shed His precious blood for us, and paid the price so that we will be saved and to reach eternal life. For us to receive a bright future and to be called the children of God, God cleansed us with His precious blood.
He poured out His blood, “Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.”(Mathew 26:27,28).
“The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7). Jesus shed the last drop of His blood for us on the cross. Blood was oozing from each of His wounds.
In the old testament the sons of Aaron after sacrificing the goats and bull would bring the blood of these sacrificed animals to Aaron in a vessel. Aaron dipped his finger in the blood, put it on the horns of the altar, and poured the blood at the base of the altar (Leviticus 9:9). In the same way when you apply the blood of Jesus on the windows and doorposts of your house, the angel of death, sickness, poverty, and witchcraft cannot enter your homes. Then people will exclaim at us saying, “Who are these who stand so victoriously.” And others will reply, “They are those who are washed in the blood of the lamb.” Let us gratefully remember the struggles and sacrifices of our Lord our entire life and acknowledge the power in His blood that was shed for us. Let us pray.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, you shed your blood on the cross for us and died and rose again on the third day – for this we thank you. Lord, you poured out your love, tears, and blood on your children who are reading this message. We are saved because you shed until the last drop of your blood. Your holy blood delivered us from all sin and curse. We surrender ourselves into thy Hands.
