The Power of Jesus’ Blood
The precious powerful blood of Christ purifies us from all sin, opens the founts of God’s forging love & enables us to live in the power & freedom of forgiveness. Incredibly it does even more than these wonderful things for us.
There is nothing else like it in all creation!!! It is the ultimate, eternal sacrifice of love (Hebrews 9:12-15).
In addition, the blood of Jesus brings peace & reconciliation with God.
Today we will focus upon these two great benefits for believers.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more,
having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God
through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
…and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. Colossians 1:20
Through the precious blood of Christ we have peace with God.
We who were alienated from Him & enemies of God are reconciled & brought near through Christ’s great sacrifice.
We are united & live in harmony once again with our heavenly Father.
The relationship we were created for is fully restored. Hallelujah!!!
O what a Saviour & o what peace we have through Christ.
Through the precious blood of Christ we are reconciled to live in a relationship of peace & harmony with God.
Friendly relations are restored with God through the sacrifice of Christ.
There is no longer anything to separate from His love & deny us access to God’s presence.
We are freely welcomed to the throne of grace & into God’s presence & peace (Hebrews 4:14-16).
The sin offering & sacrifice has been made eternally through Christ’s shed blood.
We stand by faith in grace because the power of the blood of Jesus removes every barrier & obstacle.
O what a marvellous & mighty salvation. Praise the Lord.
We are reconciled to God to be ministers of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:19).
Reconciled to be reconcilers. Brought near to God so that we can bring others near to Him too.
Receiving His peace so we can release His peace to others. May we truly be who the Lord intends us to be.
Missional disciples & ministers of reconciliation through Jesus’ blood.
How wonderful, how marvellous that Jesus willingly shed His precious blood for you & me!
How amazing that we have free access into God’s presence through Jesus’ precious blood!
- Am I experiencing the peace & harmony with God that Jesus blood has made available to me?
- Having been reconciled to God am I active in being a minister of reconciliation?
- Meditate upon the peace & reconciliation that is ours through the blood of Jesus.
A song related to this theme:
Thank you for the reconciliation that has been made available in Christ Your Son & my Saviour,
That I can live in peace & harmony with You through His sacrifice.
Jesus thank you for that there is nothing to separate me from the love of God,
Because of Your shed blood.
Holy Spirit keep me boldly & confidently approaching the throne of grace with deep conviction,
To freely enter the presence & peace of God.
This I ask In Jesus mighty Name.
