The Cleansing Blood of Christ

by Kathleen Huebener in Inspiration

The shed blood of Christ Jesus on the cross is an awesome thing. His blood accomplishes much in the Christian and for the Christian.


The first blessing is that the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross for our sins cleanses us.
It is written in I John 1:7.


"If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another,
and the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanses us from all sin."


Think about it. Let this truth simmer in your brain, until the full flavor comes through.


We are sinners. We can’t help ourselves, even though some unbelievers have claimed the scripture found in Philippians 2: 12, “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”


This scripture does not say that we should work for salvation in order to obtain it. The scripture simply says that Christians are to manifest the gospel within their own lives.


We are truly new creatures when we accept Christ as our Savior. By accepting His sacrifice for our sins, we are cleansed by His blood. Now is the time to show our salvation through our lives, our works, our words, and our obedience to God’s word. Amen!
