The Blood Still Works

“You were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.” (1 Peter 1:18-19)

On Good Friday, I had my fourth surgery. I’m so thankful to serve a God who keeps His word and answers prayers. 

He didn’t have to spare my life but for some reason, He did. In Romans 9: 15-17 the Lord tells Moses “I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I have compassion. So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy.” I give God all the glory for this victory as it was not won by my hand. 

The theme of blood runs like a  literal red thread throughout the Bible. Songs have been written about the mighty blood of Jesus. Through His bloodshed we are cleansed and made whole. Even the enemy Satan has been conquered through His precious blood! 

There is so much power, protection, and promise in the Blood of the sacrificial Lamb that is not known to many people.  Although I did go through the fire, but because of this holy covering, I was able to come out of it without even smelling of smoke, hallelujah! 

This is nothing new as he did the same for Daniel’s friends Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego “…and they saw these men on whose bodies the fire had no power; the hair of their head was not singed nor were their garments affected, and the smell of fire was not on them.” Daniel 3: 27

I hope whoever is reading this today finds hope in my message. He saved me and can do the same for you! Try the Blood-it still works!
