God: uses the most interesting things….
1 John 1:7 (KJV) “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin”.
One song writer wrote “my stubborn will at last hath yielded” and I think in some part of my consciousness I know exactly what they are speaking about; they had tried everything they could on their own and ended up banged up and hurt to the point of limping and it was at this point they had to turn to the only source that could resolve the problem: Jesus.
We fail to understand the words “we are spirit and inhabit fleshy bodies”, but when we come to the understanding and the fulness of this concept it would be that much easier to be in union with God for we were made to please Him. The good thing about our Father is that He doesn’t leave us alone to do the work, but He put things into place to help us: the blood.
What can wash away our sins and keep us consistently presentable before the Lord God Almighty: the blood of Jesus. It cleanses, it washes, it restores, and it heals. Just to name a few of the properties it holds.
Beloved, be cleansed today: use the blood…
