1 John 1:7 “But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”
Beloved, the life of a creature is in the blood, the word of God declares this in Leviticus 17:11. Blood as we know is essential to human life and the Bible tells us the most powerful cleansing agent in the world is the blood.
In fact, God created blood to be a cleansing agent. In your body blood takes oxygen and other supplies to cells and removes waste and impurities from those cells. Blood literally cleans out the filth from your body. There is no other cleansing agent known to man that can purify our bodily system as well as the blood that courses through our veins.
So also, there is no other cleansing agent known to man that can rid your soul of its filth and shame than the blood of Jesus. We need to be cleansed from our sins because of our nature. The prophet Isaiah writes that “…there are none that doeth good…” and the apostle writes “there are none righteous, no not one…” and that “…all have sinned and come short of the glory of God…”
Without Christ’s ongoing cleansing, enduring fellowship would be impossible, for the guilt resulting from sin destroys fellowship. We clean a lot of things regularly. We need to clean our lives through the precious blood of Christ regularly. Sanctification is possible because of the blood of Christ; submit to the Holy Spirit to sanctify you.
God’s wrath will be poured upon the unbelievers but the blood of Jesus saves us from the wrath of God. It saves us from the eternal fire of hell. God has graciously granted us several blessings through the blood of our Jesus Christ.
I challenge you to put the Word of God into practice by ceasing to live a sinful life and begin to walk in the light of God through the obedience of His word. You are redeemed not to go back to your old, sinful lifestyle but to live a life which brings glory to God.
Let’s be grateful for the Lord’s awesome sacrifice. There is wonder-working power in the precious blood of the Lamb. If you are still not saved, repent and give your life to Jesus who has paid the highest price any one can pay and the gift is free, all you need to do is to accept it today.
You are welcome to the month of September and the blood of Jesus avail for us daily in Jesus mighty name.
