Today's Daily Encounter

Why the Shedding of Blood?

"How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through
the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to
God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve
the living God? … And almost all things are by the law
purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no
remission [forgiveness of sins]."1

I can certainly identify with Dr. Paul Brand who said,
"I used to think it strange that the Bible keeps
talking about the cleansing power of the blood.2 It
seemed to me that blood was messy stuff. I needed to
wash my white lab coats if they became stained with
blood. Today, I love the analogy; it is so true of the
body. The blood is constantly cleansing every cell, and
washing away all the debris that accumulates all the
time. I like Paul's phrase in Hebrews.3 ‘How much more
shall the blood of Christ purge [cleanse] your
conscience from dead works?’"4

God's Word also says, "The life of the flesh is in the
blood."5 When Jesus died on the cross on Good Friday so
long ago, he gave his life and shed his blood so we
could be cleansed from every sin and stain and made
pure in God's sight--so we would be able to live with
him forever in Heaven.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, how can I ever thank you
enough for dying on the cross and shedding your blood
so I could be forgiven of every sin and stain and
[made]make pure in your sight and thereby qualified
for Heaven. Because you gave your life and died for
me, I give my life to live for you. So help me God to
do this. Thank you for hearing and answering my
prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."

Note: If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your
Savior and received God’s forgiveness, please read:
