Meditation Moment - THE BLOOD OF CHRIST

The Gilmer Free Press


We teach and sing about the precious blood of the Son of God.  Some of the songs we sing are “There is Power in the Blood,” “Are You Washed in the Blood” and “There is a Fountain Filled With Blood.”  It is so generally understood that we are washed in the blood of Christ in order to be saved that only an infidel would dispute it.

When our Lord was instituting the Lord’s Supper, He said, “This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for remission of sins.” (Matt. 26:29)  In speaking of the dedication of the New Testament with the blood of Christ, Paul said: “And without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” ((Heb. 9:22)  “…Unto him that loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood.”  (Rev. 1:5)  These verses and many more teach us that if we ever stand redeemed at last in the presence of God it will be by the merit of Christs’ shed blood and because we have washed our robes in that blood.

Acts 20:28 says, “…to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.”  Jesus bought the church with his own blood and we are added to the church when we have been washed in the blood at the time we are baptized. (Acts 2:41-47)  We are saved by the grace and mercy of God. (Titus 2:11-15)  Titus 3:15 says,  “He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.  He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior.”  There is no power in the water, but the power is in the command to be baptized in water. (Acts 8:37-38 & Acts 10:47-48)  We daily 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. (I John 1:7)
