The Power of Jesus’ Blood – Myles Munroe

February 17
Romans 3:25 says, “God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood.” I wasn’t around when Adam sinned. I wasn’t there when Jesus died. How can blood shed two thousand years ago cleanse me today? Because the blood still has power. God says, in effect, “I received the animal sacrifices that the high priests brought to Me. When My power connected with them, it was so potent that it atoned for the sins of three million Israelites. How much more will the ‘precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect’ (1 Peter 1:19) atone for your sins?”
When Christ came as high priest of the good things that are already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not man-made, that is to say, not a part of this creation. He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, having obtained eternal redemption…How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! (Hebrews 9:11–12, 14) Christ is the atoning Sacrifice for the sins of the world. (See 1 John 2:2.) When Jesus came to John to be baptized, John said, “Look—God has provided His own Lamb.” (See John 1:29.) God provided this Lamb as the Sacrifice for our sins so we can enter the Holy of Holies where He dwells (see Hebrews 4:16), trembling because we fear God, but confident because we know Jesus’ blood has completely cleansed us.
Father God, I am in awe of Your love and power. Thank You for sending Jesus as the Sacrifice for my sins. Thank You that His blood has the power to cleanse me forever. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Thought: Christ’s blood has the power to cleanse us from all sin.
