THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB
“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.”
1 Peter 1:18-21 KJV
Pastor Robert Lowry wrote the beautiful hymn “NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD”. Thank God for the precious cleansing blood of Jesus that He shed on the cross for our sins. Jesus shed His own blood so we can have our sins forgiven. What a Saviour, this Jesus of
! One day we will see Him face to face. Nazareth
I’ve read about people receiving blood transfusions that weren’t successful. Even if all transfusions are successful, if we haven’t received the blood of Jesus we will die. When we receive the blood of Jesus we will live forever. Elvina Mable Hall wrote one of my favorite hymns “Jesus Paid It All”.
I am so thankful that Jesus loves us so much that He died on the cross for our sins. I love these words in this beautiful and heart touching hymn. “Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe; Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow”. We owe Jesus everything, our life, our time and our devotion.
Heavenly Father, thank You for giving Jesus to us to die on the cross for our sins. Jesus, thank You for dying for us and for staying on the cross when You could have come down. I love You so much; precious Saviour and I appreciate all You have done for me. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
