What the Blood of Jesus Christ Gives Us

By Edd Sterchi

* It Gives Us Forgiveness (Matt. 26:28; Col. 1:14; Rev. 1:5)

* It Gives Us Life (John 6:53)

* It Gives Us the Church (Acts 20:28)

* It Gives Us Justification (Rom. 5:9)

* It Gives Us Redemption (Eph. 1:7; Col. 1:14; 1 Pet. 1:18-19; Rev. 5:9)

* It Gives Us a Relationship with God (Eph 2:13: Heb. 10:19)

* It Gives Us Peace (Col. 1:20)

* It Gives Us a Clear Conscience (Heb. 9:14)

* It Gives Us the New Covenant (Heb. 12:24; Heb. 13:20)

* It Gives Us Sanctification (Heb 13:12)

* It Gives Us Continual Cleansing (1 John 1:7)

* It Gives Us the Victory! (Rev. 12:11)

    But the blood of Jesus Christ can only do these things if we properly come into contact with it. And we are told in the Bible that we come into contact with the blood of Christ when we believe in Him, repent of our sins, and are baptized into Him. “Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.” (Rom. 6:3-6).

    Have you let the blood of Christ do its wonderful gift-giving work for you?
