TOPIC: SAVED BY THE BLOOD
“In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” Hebrews 9:22, NIV
A man did not appreciate the Christian witness until he visited a traditional priest who asked him to bring a ram to make a sacrifice for his problems to be solved. He then reasoned; if the blood of a ram could be used to solve a problem in his life, it is far more reasonable to think the blood of a righteous One could remit sins. The man gave his life to Christ.
By divine order, it is required that blood must be shed for the remission of sins. This was practiced in the Old Testament. More so traditional believers all over the world still follow this doctrine till date. However, God proffered permanent solution to incessant sacrifices by offering the blood of His only Son for the remission of the sin of the world. Praise the Lord, no other blood or sacrifice is needed. Jesus has paid the price of forgiveness of sins once for all (Hebrews 10:10). We have access to the grace of salvation made possible through the shedding of the blood of Jesus Christ. It is a dangerous thing to toil with this great opportunity. Hold firmly to your faith.
Insight: Appreciate the redemptive grace brought to us, through the precious blood of Jesus Christ and live a life worthy of the kingdom of God.
Prayer: My Father, forgive me however I have taken my salvation for granted and help me to cherish it throughout my life.
