The Power of the Blood

Medical science confirms that blood is the most important part of our body. Without healthy blood, we will die. It is blood that keeps the body going, fights diseases, and gives us life. In the same way that blood is essential to physical health, the blood of Jesus is essential for spiritual health.

I am reading through Exodus right now. The Passover was such an amazing event. All the Israelites had to do was put blood from the sacrificial Lamb on the doorposts of their home, and the angel of death would "pass over" their home. So simple. Such faith. Simple obedience.

The result? Saved from death, delivered from slavery, and set free!

The same is true for us - if we will follow God's instructions and apply the blood of Christ to our hearts, we will be forgiven, saved from sin, and set free to live as God would have us. So simple. So profound. Such faith.

One more thing about the blood of Jesus: We overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony (Rev. 12:10). You see, Christ's blood dealt Satan a fatal blow, and we enforce that victory through the word of personal testimony and faith in Christ.

Let's rejoice in the power of the blood of Jesus!
