Track: Precious Is The Blood
Album: Joe Pace Presents: Sunday Morning Service
Lately I’ve found myself thinking more about Jesus and what it is that He did for me on Calvary.
What He did is the reason why I’m here, why you’re here; why we are here.
And while many will be filling their days in the run up to Christ’s resurrection deciding which eggs to buy and which bunnies look the cutest, I’ll personally be spending my time thinking about Him dying on that cross for my sins.
If it wasn’t for Christ’s sacrifice we’d be doomed but instead we are free. We are free because of the thorns they crowned Him with and the nails they pierced into His precious hands.
Philippians 2:7 tells us that “He made Himself nothing” so that we could live. He made Himself nothing and became “obedient to death” (Philippians 2:8) so that we could be free.
The blood that was shed on Calvary is what saved us then, what saves us now and what will save us again tomorrow.
Do you believe in the power of the blood?
For if you believe with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead then you shall be saved (Romans 10:9). You shall be freed from bondage. You shall have eternal life.
This time of year is especially important as we think about what God did for us through sacrificing His one and only son. Oh, how precious is the blood!
How precious is that redeeming blood, that saving blood, that cleansing blood from Calvary!
For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one, Christ, shall many be made righteous. (Romans 5:19).
Yes, it is sad that those He came to save, mocked Him and sentenced Him to death but, let us celebrate at this time because death could not hold our King down; He is risen and He lives for evermore. He died so that we might have life again. There truly is no greater love.
The crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Christ can be read in Matthew 27:11 – 28:10.
Have a blessed Easter everyone…
