The Red Carpet Paved by Blood

Updated on September 21, 2014

The blood of Jesus Christ

Has paved my destiny, and

It secures all of my paths,

It charts my course, and is the compass

Which guides me to real life,

His blood is my red carpet, my walk of fame

Life I can only find in His holy name,

It leads to steps as white as snow

Eternity promised by words so pure,

The spotlight of truth penetrates my soul

Giving me what I need to go the next mile,

His countenance lights my way

Because of Him I can truly smile,

He is royalty, my joy and my strength

As I discover more of who I am in Him

The hope of glory He is through me,

The blood stained path decrees me free

He is regal and royal, King of all Kings,

The King rolled out His own red carpet, and said,

Take up your cross and follow me"

I will praise you Lord Jesus!

All that You wrought is marvelous, and

Your finished works I can see,

My soul is a witness to Your good working in me

What You wrought for me at Calvary,

You gave me a red carpet to tread

Paved in Your grace and mercy, that

This ole world and no one could ever afford,

The treasures in Your cleansing and atoning blood.

The blood that Jesus shed at Calvary

paved the way for you and me,

His sacrifice framed a path for us to walk

Gave us a new and living way to talk,

We all have to take it personally, that

His blood cleanses and gives us a sin bath,

The path through His blood Is our red carpet to fame

which we access only in His precious name

We shine through the spotlight of His Spirit

Not of anything pertaining to ourselves

Everything we are, we owe to the blood

Now we walk the red carpet stained with blood

Love so powerful in this crimson flood.

****We overcome by the word of our testimony and the blood of Jesus Christ****

      This is such a great post. Quality, diversity and quanitty. I will have to remember that. I've found that link building is a pain in the butt, but it can pay huge dividends if you are patient and work it consistently.I always thought blog comments were good, but I will have to reconsider that strategy. I will spend more time getting backlinks from PR3 or higher sites.Thanks for this great article. It really helped me out. Nice blog!Chuck

      The challenge now is how to igtanrete all the readily available online-based tools in order to make every teaching session a rewarding experience. I am very glad that there are teachers like you who actually value the means from which his students will learn. This is what dynamism in education is all about. On the other hand, there might still be some educators who are scared to go and test the waters themselves. Sometimes, being too conventional hurts a bit. I also agree that there is so much you can do about the internet. While you utilize it as a means to reach your students and provide learnings, I also do the same in my advocacy as a health professional. I acquire tools and updated information online that I can use to educate my patients and to fortify my knowledge-base as a professional.Thank you very much for sharing your article. I just love the fact that I joined the 12writing page because I get to read lots of valuable insights every time I drop by. Just like the one you just shared with the rest of us.More power!

      Wow, so beautifully written of powerful truths here! This is an amazing poem. Yes, it is His blood that washes away our sins to cleanse us, and the high price was paid on that cross long ago. Praise Him! We are now new and beautiful creatures in Christ, and the old has passed away. The power is in His blood.

      Up ++++ and away

      God bless you. In His Love
