“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 ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.”
BLOOD (def): The fluid consisting of plasma, blood cells, and platelets that is circulated by the heart through the vertebrate vascular system, carrying oxygen and nutrients to and waste materials away from all body tissues.
Without blood we could not exist. Without the blood of Christ we could not exist as well. It is a different type of existence by comparison, but each blood is equally important. When God created us he put blood in our veins to sustain our lives. In the OT His required the blood of an animal with no defect to receive forgiveness for their sins. When Christ came to earth to put into play God’s plan of salvation for sinful man, His perfect blood was required to completely eradicate our sin.
Blood plays such a big part in our society with all the vampire movies, war games and in general spilling of blood that goes on today. I think it may trivialize the significance of blood, especially to the believer.
Without the spilling of blood in a very specific sense by a very special individual, there is NO forgiveness for sin. No other blood will do. No other blood has that power. What does the blood of Christ mean to you?
WALK WITH THE KING TODAY AND BE A BLESSING!!
