Covered by the Blood......

“In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:14

He did not enter by spilling the blood of goats and calves. He entered the Most Holy Room by spilling his own blood. He did it once and for all time. He paid the price to set us free from sin forever. Hebrews 9:12

It is good to remember how Jesus died for our salvation but it is vital to remember that Jesus died on the cross, was buried to confirm His death, and then ROSE victoriously a SHORT 3 days later. Christ is alive! He is RISEN! Thank you God for your mercy. Thank you Lord Jesus for paying for my many sins (past, present and future)with your precious blood. "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin." 1 John 1:7

Friend, we were redeemed with the blood of Christ and when we sin God takes a look and He does not see us. He sees Jesus. Christ already took our punishment. We are forgiven from (All) sins and not just some of them. The blood of Christ has power to take away all sins. And when you understand this simple truth, you will be able to live the abundant life that Jesus died to give you.

The blood of Christ is a big deal. We are not just making a big deal out of it. Jesus Christ reconciled us with the Father. When we accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, you and I were forever saved from eternal damnation. Our salvation is secured. We will live eternally with Christ. The blood not only washed away sin, it also provide healing of all disease. Listen, Jesus deserves glory and praises because He is our perfect Savior and only advocate/intercessor/mediator of God’s grace. Listen, Jesus willingly died for our sins, in our place, to pay the debt that we could never pay. “He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by His wounds you have been healed” (1 Pet. 2:24).

Friend listen, I just don"t understand why you would believe and would want to trust on anyone else other than Christ. Jesus Christ is sufficient for you and that is the absolute truth. So your spouse walks out, your life isn't over. You still have Christ. Your trust is in Christ and not in man. When you are walking out of the doctor's office with what seems to be a devastating diagnosis you are not worried one bit. You know whose you are and what He is able to do. You rest in His power and might. You know the blood of Jesus removed every yoke. Your faith is in God.

Friend, I pray that God will open everyone's eyes so that all can understand that Christ and Christ alone died for their salvation and not Mary, not the pope, or any other religious leader. My prayer is that you will focus on Christ. Only Him could have done what was done more than 2000 years ago. He alone was Holy and Blameless. Make Christ personal. He certainly made it personal on the cross. Jesus is your King, your Lord and your savior. He alone paid your sin debt in full. He alone offered you joy, peace, healing and salvation. He loves you unconditionally. He certainly has proven His love by paying your sin debt in full.

Friend go live your limitless life. Sickness, disease, lack, pain don't have any power over you. Victory is yours through the blood of Christ. Do not worry about your mortgage or that job situation. Do not worry about your broken heart. Do not worry about anything. You are covered by the blood of Christ. Start your week with joy and the hope of a secured future. Do not be moved no matter what you see and feel, no matter what you hear and no matter what the doctor and the bank say. The blood of Christ destroys every yoke. Have faith in God and be blessed!

Praise the Lord!
