A Peace Only His Blood Can Purchase
“For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.” (Colossians 1:19-20, NIV)
There is valuable and expensive, and then there is priceless. As Christians, we’ve all received a gift of peace purchased with something priceless – the blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus accomplished many things on the cross. Our ability to win, to overcome obstacles and defeat Satan rests in the blood of Jesus.
We have developed in spiritual maturity in the area of faith, healing, deliverance, and redemption. But have we grown in our understanding of the power of the blood of Jesus? We must come to realize that the blood of Jesus is: (1) the only sacrifice needed to cleanse us of our sins, redeem us and restore us into right standing with God (2) our covering and protection from sin, sickness and disease, curses and strongholds, poverty and lack (3) the key to an abundant life (4) our source of dominion, power and authority as children of God (5) recognized and honored by God and means everything before His throne (6) recognized by Satan because the blood of Jesus delivered his defeat at the cross for all eternity (7) eternal and cannot be contained, canceled, annulled, or defeated (8) our guarantee and acceptance as Sons and Daughters of the Most High God and a rightful place in the family of God (9) powerful, because when we honor Jesus and plead His blood, God in turn, honors Jesus by honoring His blood (10) the only means we have available to come into the presence of God and receive God’s blessings (11) the source of our connection to the blessings of God that enable us to fulfill the will of God for our lives.
Child of God, I encourage you to give God praise today for the blood of Jesus. His blood was shed for you on the cross while you were still in sin. It is your guarantee and entitlement to peace and treasures that wealth cannot buy. His blood is priceless, don’t waste it.
Lord, thank you for the victory of the cross! Thank you for allowing Jesus to die on the cross and shed His blood for me. I receive all that His blood has purchased for me and I plead His blood over my life. Through the blood of Jesus and in the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
