Jesus’ Blood (2)

Jesus’ blood is important to us because it gives us forgiveness. Today we will look at Bible verses that tell us that blood is necessary so our sins can be forgiven.
Our Bible verses talk about Moses and the first agreement between God and the Israelites. God required that an animal be sacrificed so sins could be forgiven. “Sins cannot be forgiven without a blood sacrifice” (verse 22b). When Jesus came to earth, died on the cross and rose again, God made a new agreement with people. According to this agreement, God accepted Jesus’ death as the sacrifice for our sins. If we believe in Jesus and obey God’s Word, God will forgive our sins and give us eternal life with Him.
It is hard for me to think about Jesus’ death. He had to suffer and die so that my sins can be forgiven. But Jesus was willing to do this for you and me! Share the news about God’s agreement with someone. Tell them about God’s forgiveness and His gift of salvation.
