I hope you are well and keeping safe. Happy Monday! Yesterday, I preached a sermon in church about the Blood of Jesus. It was a glorious service. Glory to be God! I would like to equip you with the truth of God's Word about the power in the Blood of Jesus Christ. Let me share 5 things the Blood of Jesus Christ has done for you.
1) The Blood of Jesus Christ has given you victory over the enemy (the devil). Regardless of any storm that you go through, rest assured that God's plan for you is to be victorious as the blood of Jesus Christ has paved the way for you. Did you know that the blood of Jesus was one of the things that granted angel Michael victory over the devil when war broke out in heaven? Read Revelation 12:7-11 for more information.
It's important to note that as you call upon the Blood of Jesus to work for you, you must give yourself completely to God. You must stand against the devil and its strategies so that he will flee from you (James 4:7). The seven sons of Sceva were overthrown and overpowered by the devil because they had not given themselves completely to Jesus Christ (Acts 19:11-16).
2) You have received the forgiveness of sin by the Blood of Jesus. Hebrews 12:24 (NLT) says "You have come to Jesus, the one who mediates the new covenant between God and people, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks of forgiveness instead of crying out for vengeance like the blood of Abel."
Matthew 26:28 (NLT) says "For this is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice to forgive the sins of many."
3) You have been made right in God's sight by the Blood of Jesus. Romans 5:9 says "And since we have been made right in God's sight by the blood of Christ, He will certainly save us from God's condemnation."
We had all fallen short of God's glorious standards (Romans 3:23). Colossians 1:21-22 (NLT) says "This includes you who were once far away from God. You were His enemies, separated from Him by your evil thoughts and actions. Yet now He has reconciled you to Himself through the death of Christ in His physical body. As a result, He has brought you into His own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before Him without a single fault.”
Thanks be to Jesus Christ for restoring our relationship with God.
4) By the Blood of Jesus, you have bold access to approach God in prayer and worship. Hebrews 10:19 (NLT) says "And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus."
Whenever you feel like staying away from God after you have made a mistake. Could I please encourage you to do the opposite of your feeling? Please go to God and ask Him for forgiveness, confess your sin and forsake your sin.
5) You have been saved from a life of sin by the Blood of Jesus.
1 Peter 1:18-19 (NLT) says "For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God."
You have been bought with a price, with the precious blood of Jesus. Only the precious blood of Jesus could pay for your redemption back to God's family. The Father purchased you back to Himself with the blood of His only Son. Therefore, please do not doubt the love God has for you and the incredible value and worth God places on you.
Jesus paid for all your sins by His precious blood. He paid it all. Since He paid for all your sins, He said you belong to Him. Psalm 100:3 says "Acknowledge that the Lord is God! He made us, and we are His. We are His people, the sheep of His pasture."
Do you believe you belong to God and you are no longer your own?
Do you allow God to be the Lord over everything that pertains to you?
