Pastor's Corner: The power of Jesus' blood

I heard a preacher on the radio once say that the blood of Jesus was just the blood of a mere man. That man had no clue about the power that is in the blood of Jesus. It was not the blood of a mere man that ran down the cross; it was the blood of God.

Colossians 1:14 says, “We have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.” We were lost in sin and it took the blood of Jesus to redeem us. 1st Peter 1:18-19 says, ”We were not redeemed with corruptible things, but by the precious blood of Christ.”

The day I got saved, the preacher preached about the blood of Jesus. I realized that precious blood was for my redemption and for anyone lost in sin.

I found peace through His blood. Colossians 1:20 says, “and having made peace through the blood of his cross.” was justified by faith and found peace with God through Jesus Christ. In this crazy world, we need the peace of God.

The power of Jesus’ blood can give us a new life. In the Old Testament, the High Priest would go once a year into the Holy of Holies and offer the blood of animals for our sins, and yet it was powerless to free men from sin, but the power of Jesus’ blood freed us from sin’s power.

It’s no longer by the blood of bulls and of goats, but there’s a new and living way opened to us, and it’s the blood of Jesus Christ. Hebrews 9:12 says, ”by his own blood, he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. We no longer have to wait for a man to offer a sacrifice for us, but Hebrews 10:19 says, ”We have the boldness or liberty to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus.”

The day I got saved, they sang an old song: Would you be free from your burden of sin, there’s power in the blood, power in the blood. Would you over evil a victory win, there’s wonderful power in the blood. There is power, power, wonder working power in the blood of the Lamb; there is power, power, wonder working power in the precious blood of the Lamb. Thank God for his precious blood. There is still power in his blood to set free all that will call upon him.
