Life Is in the Blood
“For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one's life.” (Leviticus 17:11, NIV)
Moses tells us that life is in the blood. This was truth in the Old Testament before Jesus came to serve as a sacrifice on the cross for our sins. Post crucifixion and resurrection, every believer’s relationship with God and inheritance of Kingdom promises rests on the blood of Jesus. I’ve noticed that many Christians have a basic understanding of spiritual maturity with regard to faith, healing, deliverance, and redemption; but are limited in their understanding of the power of the blood of Jesus. We must have faith and trust in the blood of Jesus, both in what it has already done, and what it will do. On the cross, Jesus became our sacrifice. His blood was required to tip the scales from sin, evil and damnation to righteousness, holiness and salvation. The blood of Jesus is the only sacrifice needed to cleanse us from our sins, redeem and restore us into right standing with God.
The blood of Jesus ensures that we can live a life free from sin, curses, strongholds, fear, sickness, disease, poverty and lack. His blood is the key to an abundant life, peace, joy and hope. His blood enables us to walk in dominion, authority and power as a Son of God. The blood assures us a rightful place in the family of God. His blood allows us to come into the presence of God and receive His blessings and favor.
Child of God, to ensure that you win in every situation, I encourage you to plead the blood of Jesus over your life every day. Share your testimony and witness to others about the power of the blood. Trust the power in the blood of Jesus and refuse to walk in fear, doubt and unbelief. Expect to see miracles and supernatural results. Moses, was right . . . there is life in the blood ̶ the blood of Jesus!
Father, thank You for sending Your Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross and shed His blood for my sins. Today, I plead the blood of Jesus over every area of my life. I know there is abundant life in the blood. Through the blood of Jesus and in the name of Jesus I pray, amen.
