Jesus’ Blood (6)

Today is the last day we will look at verses that talk about Jesus’ blood. Our Bible Reading tells us that Jesus’ blood is important because it helps us defeat the devil. Revelation 12:11 says, “They defeated him by the blood sacrifice of the Lamb and by the message of God that they told people.” These verses talk about God’s final victory over the devil. This victory will happen because Jesus became the sacrifice for our sins. When we allow Jesus to cleanse us, we share in this victory.
Every day Christians are in a battle with the devil. The devil attacks us and tries to get us to turn away from God. Because of Jesus’ sacrifice, we have the gift of God’s Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit helps us to resist the devil and stay close to God. James 4:7 reminds us, “So give yourselves to God. Stand against the devil, and he will run away from you.”
God’s Spirit will be with you today to lead you and to help you defeat the devil. Depend on Him to stand strong and live for Him!
