THE IMPORTANCE OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS
The first thing God did to deal with Adam and Eve's sin was to cover them
with innocent blood: “The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his
wife and clothed them”(Genesis 3:21 ).God killed an animal of some kind,
probably a sheep,ram , or goat,took its bloody skin, and made garments for
Adam and Eve to wear. With this act, God revealed to them that the cost of
covering their sin was the shed blood of an innocent victim. Only blood can
cover sin. Adam and Eve tried to cover themselves with fig leaves, but that
was inadequate because no blood was involved. They were still in their sin.
An animal sacrifice was only a symbol of covered sin;the death of a lamb
could never truly take away the sin of man. Only a sacrifice equal in
stature to man would qualify. In other words, only the shed blood of a human
being would be sufficient to cleanse human sin.Not just any human would do;
it had to be a human without any sin of his own, a human who was already
pure and spotless and holy.Jesus Christ,the sinless Son of God, born of the
Virgin Mary,is the only person who met the requirment. God sent His only
begotten Son as a sacrifice to ransom us from sin because no one else
could. Christ alone was qualified.
The blood of Jesus is critical. No matter how often we go to church,no
matter how active we are,no matter how many times we receive communion,no
matter how much money we give in the offering,and no matter how much time
we spend helping the poor or the sick,unless we have confessed Jesus Christ
as our Savior and Lord and allowed His blood to cover and cleanse us, we are
still lost and are aliens from the Kingdom.Good works won't cut it. Sound
theology won't cut it. Correct doctrine won't cut it. Only the blood of
Jesus can cleanse us of sin and make us rightous and holy again. Good works,
sound theology,and correct doctrine are byproducts of a growing life in the
Spirit. But apart from the blood of Jesus they have no power.
Because of our sin, we were spiritually dead, slaves to our sin and hostage
to saten and his kingdom of darkness. By His death on the cross, Jesus paid
the ronsom to free us from satan's grip.He became our substitute so that we
could go free.Jesus became sin for us so that we could become the
righteousness of God (2 Cor.5 :21).
There is none like Him, nothing in this world can compare to Him.
