The Power of Jesus’ Blood

The precious powerful blood of Christ purifies us from all sin, enables us to live in the power & freedom of forgiveness & brings peace & reconciliation with God. God is the God of abundance & therefore the blood of Christ works abundantly & extravagantly on our behalf.
Another benefit of the precious blood of Jesus is that it draws us near to God.
We have free access to His presence (Romans 5:1-3) & we can approach him with confidence & boldness (Hebrews 4:16).


But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. Ephesians 2:13

Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus,
by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh,
and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full
assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies
washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering,
for He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:19-23


Through the precious blood of Christ we have free access to God’s presence.
We are brought near – up close & personal – through Jesus’s sacrifice.
Jesus has opened up a new living way through giving His body upon Calvary’s cross.
Dead & lost in sin we were alienated from God but we are brought close through Jesus’ blood.
Invited into the most intimate place – the Holy of Holies – through the power of Christ’s shed blood.
Nothing to separate us from the presence of God because of Jesus’s blood & sacrifice.
O what a wondrous Saviour.

We have been washed, cleansed & purified through the blood of Christ.
We must approach the Lord with confidence & assurance with genuine trusting hearts.
Full of faith & with strong conviction in the saving work of our Saviour.
Trusting the power of Jesus’ blood fully we hold fast (seize & grip tightly) to the hope we have ‘In Christ’.
As we do so we will find an abundance of grace & mercy to meet our every need.
O what a marvelous & mighty salvation. Praise the Lord.

Christ blood enables & frees us to draw near to God. As we do so the Lord draws near to us.
In God’s presence is fulness of joy (Psalm 16:11) & there is no greater place to be.
O what a mighty privilege we have been granted through the blood of Jesus our Saviour.
How wonderful, how marvelous that Jesus willingly shed His precious blood for you & me!!
How amazing that we are freely invited & forever welcomed into God’s presence through Jesus’ precious blood!

For Reflection

  • Am I confident & bold to draw near to God & enter His presence?
  • How close to God do I feel right now?
  • Meditate upon our privilege of drawing near to God anytime, anyplace through Christ our Saviour.

A song related to this theme:


Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Thank you that through Christ I can draw near to You,
And as I do so You draw near to me.
Jesus thank you that You have opened a new & living way,
That I can boldly & with confidence enter the presence of God.
Holy Spirit keep me boldly & confidently entering & accessing the presence of God,
Approaching the Holy Of Holies with deep conviction, & holding fast the great hope I have ‘In Christ’.
This I ask In Jesus mighty Name.
Amen
