Blood

Hebrews 9:22 And according to the Law, one may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.

Ever since the first sin in the garden, there’s never been forgiveness of sin without the shedding of blood.  Adam & Eve sinned and an animal’s blood was shed as God offered them forgiveness and clothes to wear.  As Moses received the law, animals blood was shed as a sacrifice for the peoples sins.  Blood was spread on the instruments of the temple, sanctifying them.  But no matter how much animal blood was shed, there was no permanent forgiveness of sin.  That was until, our Lord Jesus appeared.  He is the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29).

His blood was shed once, for all and because of that the penalty has been paid for our sins.  Death has no claim to those in Christ Jesus (1 Corinthians 15:55-57).  Praise to be Jesus, the Lamb of God!

If you have never applied Jesus’ blood to your sin, I invite you to cry out to Him to save you.  Confess your sins and ask that His blood was you make you whiter than snow (Psalm 51:7).  His blood is our only hope for salvation.
