“Drink ye all of it; For this my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.”

The Blood That Jesus Shed
When I think of Lent/the Easter Season, I always think of the ultimate gift that God gave to us for the remission of sin. That he would allow His only Son to be killed for us is beyond anything my mind can conceive. But God did just that so we would always know there is hope for us. Do we sin? Yes. But this amazing gift says there is always the opportunity for redemption. This is a gift like no other. One of my favorite songs is ‘The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power.”
The blood that Jesus shed for me, Way back on Calvary;
The blood that gives me strength from day to day – It will never lose its power.
It reaches to the highest mountain,
It flows to the lowest valley –
The blood that gives me strength from day to day –It will never lose its power.
Knowing that I have that kind of power in my corner gives me all I need to be faithful to God and to live a life that can be seen by others as a testament to the goodness of the Father.
Prayer: Father, help me to live from day to day so others may see you in me, in Jesus’ name I pray. Amen
