“That at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ” Ephesians 2:12-13, NKJV.
Yesterday, we had a blood drive at work, and I gave a unit of blood. As I sat in the chair, as I was pricked with the needle and inserted into my vein, I realized my blood was going to literally help someone live. As I watched the blood flow from me, I was soberly touched because this is what Jesus did for me.
This is what Jesus did for you.
He hung on a cross and shed not just a unit of blood, but every ounce he had for our atonement and redemption. Sin made us far, but the blood of Jesus has made us near. We once were separated from God, but now we’ve been brought near having forgiveness, promises, and hope.
The life of the body is in the blood (see Leviticus 17:11). The blood has done everything you needed it to do for you. Whatever was behind you in your life, no matter what it is, the blood has settled it. You can literally live now. Live by faith in the power of the blood.
Prayer: Father, I give You the highest praise, hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus, for the power of your blood. Help me to put all my faith in its’ power. The blood has settled the promises and the hope I have with Christ in my life. Nothing can hold me down. I can live. Glory to God! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
