“For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life.” Leviticus 17:11

 

“In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.”

Hebrews 9:22

 

“In Him (Jesus) we have redemption (deliverance and salvation) through His (Jesus) blood, the remission (forgiveness) of our offenses (shortcomings and trespasses) in accordance with the riches and generosity of His gracious favour.” Ephesians 1:7 Amplified Bible

 

BLOOD AND CEMENT

 

“Our light post that was installed years ago completely rusted out at the base and fell over one cold and windy spring day.  It had been driven into the ground using a sledgehammer and the contact with the ground frost, rainwater and snow and ice was too much for the thin gauge metal.

The next time around I was going to use cement.  I dug the hole and used a great premix fast curing concrete that you simply pore into the hole, add water and stir.  Within minutes the mix had started to set and using a fork style screwdriver blade, I dug into the cement and hit flesh, my flesh.  Soon the cement was stained red as I had cut clean and deep.  I couldn’t stop because I had to keep turning the mix over to allow the water to penetrate.  By the time I was done, I had become part of the job, my life interfused with the light post.

 

When Jesus pored out His blood upon the Cross of Calvary He pored it out as propriation for our sins.  His blood became the acceptable sacrifice; the innocent for the guilty.

The blood washes over the sinner and makes them clean.  It is through the blood we are atoned and it is through the blood we are given new life.

Our sin nailed Jesus to the Cross, but it was His love for us that motivated Him to walk up the hill alone, and it was His love for us that kept Him there until His eternal plan for redemption was completed.

Accept His love and be set free from the pain of sin and death.  Accept His love and become One with Christ.’ DF
