The blood of Jesus is the only thing of any lasting value to the human race.
The blood of Jesus means everything.
The sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross means everything to God's chosen people.
Without Jesus' sacrifice, God's people would still be in their sins.
It's Jesus blood that cleanses us of all of our sins.
To be honest, Jesus' blood is the only thing of any real value in the world.
Just think: what's going to matter 100 years from now?
Is your career going to matter? Is your college degree going to matter? Is your savings account going to matter?
The only thing that's going to matter is whether you've acquired eternal life.
And this is only possible due to the sacrifice that Christ made on the cross.
Without His blood being shed on the cross, we would have no hope of eternal life, because it is Jesus' blood that cleanses us of our sin.
1 Peter 1:18-19 "18For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life you inherited from your forefathers, 19but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or spot."
Hebrews 13:11-12 "11 Although the high priest brings the blood of animals into the Holy Place as a sacrifice for sin, the bodies are burned outside the camp. 12And that is why Jesus suffered outside the city gate, to sanctify the people by His own blood"
Ephesians 2:13 "13But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ."
Colossians 1:17-20 " 17He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. 18And He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning and firstborn from among the dead, so that in all things He may have preeminence. 19For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him, 20and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through the blood of His cross."
Romans 3:25 "God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished"
Acts 20:28 "Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. "
John 6:47-58 '47Truly, truly, I tell you, he who believes has eternal life. 48I am the bread of life. 49Your forefathers ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died. 50This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that anyone may eat of it and not die. 51I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And this bread, which I will give for the life of the world, is My flesh.”
52At this, the Jews began to argue among themselves, “How can this man give us His flesh to eat?”
53So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Son of Man, you have no life in you. 54Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55For My flesh is real food, and My blood is real drink.
56Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood remains in Me, and I in him. 57Just as the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on Me will live because of Me. 58This is the bread that came down from heaven. Unlike your forefathers, who ate the manna and died, the one who eats this bread will live forever.”'
Jesus' blood washes away the sins of those who have become Christians.
Jesus' blood gives us eternal life.
Partaking in Jesus' blood by the Lord's supper allows us to remain in Christ.
The Blood of Jesus is the only thing of any value to the human race, because it is the only that lasts forever and gives us eternal certainty. Everything else in life is temporary.
