Washed in Blood — For Today’s Journey
I (Pastor Paul) am a little squeamish around blood. So instead of anything looking like blood, here is a picture of strawberries getting washed in water.
Summary: In Jesus’ blood, we are given his life and identity which becomes our own.
Key Scripture: “For if the blood of goats and bulls, with the sprinkling of the ashes of a heifer, sanctifies those who have been defiled so that their flesh is purified, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to worship the living God!” — Hebrews 9:13-14
Key Scripture: “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us,” — Hebrews 12:1
Life Applications: How does your life point towards being washed and stained in the blood of Jesus? What habits can you adopt that would help this to be seen?
