“The Blood of Jesus”

The Blood of Jesus
Bishop Daniel Robertson, Jr.
Mt. Gilead Full Gospel International Ministries

As we prepare to celebrate Easter this Sunday, it’s so important to remember the true reason for the season:  the blood of Jesus.  Because Christ died on the cross for us, we have nothing to fear.  Jesus faced every demon and power of darkness, and was victorious.  That means there’s no need to be afraid of anything.

Jesus has already gone through every temptation and betrayal imaginable, so He knows exactly how we feel during challenging times.  For this reason, we are never alone.  In addition, difficulties force us to see how strong we really are.

Luke 22:17 (NIV)
After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, “Take this and divide it among you.  For I tell you I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until the Kingdom of God comes.”

We need to be a witness and let people know that Jesus is alive.  We all need to be evangelists.  We all need to share our personal testimonies with others.  You’ve probably heard the best PR is word of mouth and it’s true!

We also need to reverence God.  Jesus died on the cross, so that we can have eternal life.  Yet, too often we’re too busy to read the Bible pray on a daily basis.

There are certain things that only God can provide.  You can’t find it in your spouse, you can’t find it in sex, you can’t find it in church.  Only Jesus can minister to you!  Joy only comes from God. 

Something to think about: You have to have a personal relationship with Jesus!  Nothing compares to His love.  When you think about the fact that the blood of Jesus has already washed away our sins, it should convict us.  His blood provides forgiveness, gives us true freedom from sin, and offers us the chance to live eternally in heaven.  Thank God for the blood of Jesus!
