The Blood Of Christ

We sing songs about the blood of Christ being shed for us, to cleanse us from our sin.
When we take communion, the wine – grape juice – symbolizes His blood, shed for us.

WE KNOW that LIFE is in the Blood...
The blood circulating in our bodies right now is taking oxygen to our body cells, and returning carbon dioxide to the air; This blood is also carrying nutrients to our cells and carrying waste products away from those cells so we will stay healthy. Components in our blood help us to fight infections, & indicate when everything is as it should be... (or not).
We also know that the heart is the organ thru which the blood flows and by which it is pumped to all our body cells. And - we know that this heart is formed and pumping before a mother even knows she is pregnant!
How awesome is that?

For many years of my nursing career I taught components of Anatomy and Physiology –
I loved to teach about the heart and the blood – particularly that of the fetus and embryo (prenatal).
You know – our bodies are amazing creations! We truly are “fearfully and wonderfully made”
(Psalm 139:14)

Think about this!
Christ’s blood is even more powerful than that that is rushing thru our bodies at this moment.
His blood carries all we need for ETERNAL LIFE!

When one is ill and requires a blood transfusion – that transfusion may restore them to EARTHLY health.
Think about what Christ’s blood has done for you! Think of the transformation His blood has made in your life! Thank Him today for the redemptive power of His blood -
shed on the Cross – for you! Thru this act you have received grace, mercy, forgiveness, love –
and an eternal home!
Praise God!

I pray these words will resonate with you today and will inspire you to share what Christ has done for you – to share the story of the Cross – to share His love!

Blessings on you today, precious ones!
Resting in HIM,
