Jesus’ Blood (1)

Look very carefully at the front cover of this devotion book. At the top you can see the form of Jesus on the cross. At the bottom you see blood. When Jesus was crucified on the cross, He bled. Blood was a necessary part of God’s wonderful plan to give us salvation.
Many people today do not like to think about blood. Some churches no longer sing songs that talk about Jesus’ blood. But blood is very important to God and His plan to save us. The Bible talks about blood more than 700 times! Verse 19 of our Bible Reading today says, “You were bought with the precious blood of Christ’s death. He was a pure and perfect sacrificial Lamb.”
For the next five days we will look at more Bible verses that show us what Jesus’ blood does for us as Christians. Think about Jesus today. Remember that He was willing to suffer and die so that you can have your sins forgiven. Praise God for the sacrifice of Jesus’ precious blood!
