Good morning! Laura and I went to watch “The Overcomer” yesterday after church, and it was amazing! Such a powerful message that the world needs to hear! God bless the Kendrick Brothers and all who had a part in that. The popcorn wasn’t to bad either.
When I was growing up, there was a powdery substance that was in every house hold. If you wanted to clean something like a sink or a toilet, AJAX was the answer! This solution would clean it like nothing else. If you had some kind of water stain or dirt that you had to get up, just grab your can of AJAX! It would get the job done.
But there is something that not even AJAX cannot clean up in everyone of our lives. That is sin! Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” I love the old hymn that says, “What can wash away my sins, Nothing but the blood of Jesus!”
Romans 5:6-11 says, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall be be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation!” That is not my opinion, but that is truth! That is straight from the Word of God.
Hebrews 9:22 tells us, “that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” Jesus was born to die! He shed His precious blood on that old rugged cross for me and you! He loved us and has freed us from the bondage of sin by His blood! Thank you Jesus!
What can wash away my sins? It’s not AJAX, but only through the blood of Jesus Christ! What are you waiting for? Blessed are they whose sins are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man whose sins the Lord will never count against him! That is the good news of Jesus Christ!
Something will come and go but the Word of God and it’s truth will stand forever! Take time this morning to thank God for the blood of Jesus Christ!
