1 Peter 1:18-19 - There Is Power In The Blood Of Jesus


1 Peter 1:18-19 -  For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. 19-It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God.

According to Romans 8:23 Everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Because we fall short, we cannot obtain salvation in and of our self. We need a Savior.  God offers Him to all of us on today. His name is Jesus Christ.

Jesus died as a substitute for us by paying the death penalty for our sins which we could not pay ourselves.

Scripture declares in Romans 5:6-8 -When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. 7 Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. 8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

Yes, it was and still is the power of the precious blood of Jesus Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God that redeemed, cleansed and atoned for our sins. The blood of Jesus did not just cover up our sins, but it removed them completely.

Once we have accepted God's free gift of salvation by faith through His Son Jesus, God removes our sins forever in this way, according to Psalm 103:10-12  He  (God) does not punish us for all our sins; He does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve. 11 For His unfailing love toward those who fear Him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth. 12 He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.

In other words, God has cast out sins into the sea of forgetfulness. That's love!

Through Jesus, God has done for us what we can never do for ourselves. He has made it possible for self-centered, prideful, and disobedient people to be forgiven and brought back into a loving and personal relationship with Him through the shed blood of His son Jesus Christ..

No, our salvation was not purchase with silver o gold, but it was the precious blood of Jesus that God accepted as the only payment for our redemption. Jesus died on the cross, shed his blood and was resurrected with all power. Yes, there is power in the blood of Jesus!

The power of the blood of Jesus still works! The blood of Jesus reaches to the highest mountain and it flows to the lowest valley. You are never out of God's reach!

Forgiveness of sins through the power of Jesus' shed blood is still available to all who would receive. It is a free gift from God. Regardless of how deep in sin you may have gone or may still be, the blood of Jesus is able to cleanse you from all sin and unrighteousness.

We are reminded of Jesus purpose for coming to earth in John 3:17 - God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through Him.

There is power in the blood of Jesus! Will you accept God's free gift on today? Without a doubt, the blood still works! There is power in the blood of Jesus!

What can was away my sins? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus has the power to break every chain.

God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for the "blood" that will NEVER loose it's power!

I love you all.
