One thing and one thing only saves you and I ... The blood of Jesus Christ.

Updated on June 4, 2017

Saved by the blood of the Lamb.

Nothing that you have done, are doing or will do will save you. Nothing that you do or don't do saves you. Not now and not in the future. Nothing at all. Not a single thing. We need a savior. We are sinners. We are saved by grace. Whose grace .... God's grace. It is not even about you and I. It is about Him and what He did for us. We are saved by His sacrifice on the cross. Sacrifice is all throughout the Bible. It goes back to the very first Passover In Exodus. They marked their homes with the blood of a perfect, unblemished lamb. The Death Angel would then pass by the home of the believer. God always provides for those who love Him. Jesus is the perfect Lamb without blemish. That is the magnitude of God's love. Jesus speaks of the new covenant in the New Testament. It is sealed with His blood. Once again God's love is so very evident by the cross. His blood saves us for now, forever, once and for all. For all time. He provides us the opportunity to be with Him in Heaven for all eternity. We need only believe and repent. What an incredible and loving God that we have. Jesus tells the apostles that there is no greater love than to lay one's life down for His friends. Jesus is a friend to all of us sinners. We are not perfect or even close but He is indeed perfect so His blood is the worthy sacrifice for all of mankind. God has provided this incredible gift through the blood of Christ. What will you do with His gift? His love is completely immense. Jesus cries from the cross, Tetelestai which is Greek for it is finished. Our sin is covered and paid in full. Our debt is paid in full because of His shed blood. We are covered by Him. His sacrifice saves us. Don't ever think it is something that you do. By His stripes we are healed. Here are some verses on the blood which saves:

Revelation 5:9 With your blood you bought men for God.

1 Peter 1:19 No, the price was, in fact, the life blood of Christ, the unblemished and unstained Lamb of sacrifice.

1Corinthians 7:23 You have been redeemed at tremendous cost. You have all been bought and paid for.

Revelation 1:5 To Him, the one who loves us, who has freed us from our sin at the cost of His blood.

Romans 3:25 God presented Him (Jesus ) a sacrifice of atonement through faith in His Blood.

Colossians 1:14 Who bought our freedom with His blood and forgave us all our sins.

Exodus 12:12 The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see he blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.

Romans 5:9 If, therefore, we have now been pronounced free from guilt through His blood, much more shall we be delivered from God's wrath through Him.

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from every sin.

God bless always.
