Life Application Truth-The Precious Blood of Jesus

April 4th, 2012

JOHN SHIRK – From First Peter 1:18.

“For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.”

The grace of God may be freely received, but it is certainly not cheap. The price for our spiritual freedom has been paid for in blood. Jesus shed His blood at the cross. Through faith in Jesus, we are set free from our sin that condemns us. No one can buy their way out of this kind of debt. That is why Jesus came-to do for us what we could not do for ourselves. His blood was the ransom payment to release us from being hostage to sin. That payment was enough.  No amount of money compares with the value of Jesus’ precious blood.

Lottery winners may have millions of dollars in their estate, but if they don’t know Jesus, the Christian in Africa who lives in a hut is much richer, because their fulfillment is found in lasting, heavenly treasure-the riches of God’s grace.

Freedom in Christ is a vital sign of a changed life in the Year of Transformation.

    I forget that God says that life is in the blood, and that Jesus blood means He gave up His Life. Unlike a sheep, Jesus did this willingly for us!!! There is power in this blood, it is God’s blood and is so much more than the blood shed for sin offerings. I like you thought about the Afircans and I know form African friends that they say with Jesus you now have life and without Jesus you don’t have life.
