The blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin. – 1 John 1:7
When you work hard and you are covered in dirt, you can take a shower and clean yourself.
Corrupted by sin
There is something dirtier which pollutes human. Sin is not only a violation against God, but it also has a very negative effect: it pollutes you.
The blood of Jesus does more than forgiving and taking away your guilt. When you allow it, the blood of Jesus will thoroughly purify you through the power of the Holy Spirit. You will feel truly cleansed.
We read in the Old Testament that blood was shed to forgive sins. These were animal sacrifices. The blood of animals was an image of the blood of Jesus. The blood of animals merely covered the sin, while the blood of Jesus cleanses, frees, delivers and completely removes the burden of sin.
Some say: ‘David, don’t emphasize the blood too much. It is better to talk about baptism, prayer, singing, praise, etc.’ But – and this is important – the evil one can deceive and mislead us in this. God can only accept our prayers, praise and thanksgiving through one thing. It is because of the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ, which was shed on Calvary. There is no other way to the throne of God but through the blood of Jesus!
The only thing that can make the evil one powerless is the blood of Jesus! Today, there is power in Jesus’ blood. Jesus went through heaven with His own blood and showed it to His Father. Based on this, God has given Him all power in heaven and on earth.
Our faith in Jesus’ blood is the wall of separation between us and the evil one. When you acknowledge your sins and accept Jesus as your Savior and Redeemer, Jesus begins to cleanse you from all sins.
