Uniqueness Of The Blood

Key Verse

“And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission” (Hebrews 9:22).

TEXT — Hebrews 9:11-23


The story of John Wesley sheds some light on the hidden and not-so-hidden meaning and power in the blood of Jesus. Returning home from church service during the night, the famed evangelist got mugged by a bandit who made away with his meagre money and a couple of literature. “Stop!” Wesley pleaded with the bandit. “I have something more to give you”, he said. As the runaway thief paused, Wesley fired the final salvo. “My friend,” said Wesley, “you may live to regret this life. If you ever do, here’s something to remember: ‘The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin!” With that, the incredulously unimpressed thief disappeared into the night even as Wesley prayed that God would interrupt his life and save him. Many years later, the confirmation of heaven’s answer to that powerful prayer showed up to greet Wesley after a Sunday service, revealing that the visitor, now a successful businessman, was the bandit that robbed the man of God.

How else can we appreciate the very profound power of that unique blood if not by what this passage conveys very clearly and powerfully? Unlike the animals used for Old Testament sacrifices, Christ’s blood was offered once for sin. The power in His blood saves not just one sinner, but all sinners who believe in Him and look up to Him for salvation. Christ, our High Priest, is the Mediator between God and man; and He lives forever.

His shed blood remains the only solution and propitiation for a sin-ravaged life. He died on the cross at Calvary to demonstrate God’s love for lost humanity. The blood of Jesus is still efficacious and powerful to save all sinners who believe in Him today. Besides, the blood of Christ provides and delivers additional spiritual and physical blessings for His faithful followers.

Thought for the day

The blood of Jesus is the only solution and propitiation for sin.
