Redeemed By The Blood Of Jesus Shed At The Cross.

1Pe 1:18 For you know that it was not with perishable things like silver or gold that you have been ransomed from the worthless way of life handed down to you by your ancestors,
1Pe 1:19 but with the precious blood of the Messiah, like that of a lamb without blemish or defect.
1Pe 1:20 On the one hand, he was foreknown before the creation of the world, but on the other hand, he was revealed at the end of time for your sake.
1Pe 1:21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope might be in God.
(ISV)

O blood shed at the cross,1)Col 1:20 Through the Son, God also reconciled all things to himself, whether things on earth or things in heaven, thereby making peace through the blood of his cross.
(ISV)
hope of all.

(ISV)

Sacrificial love, Holy Sinless Blood of Jesus, washing away all of our sins.3)Eph 2:15 He rendered the Law inoperative, along with its commandments and regulations, thus creating in himself one new humanity from the two, thereby making peace,
Eph 2:16 and reconciling both groups to God in one body through the cross, on which he eliminated the hostility.
(ISV)

World, we are dead to you, and alive in Christ!4)Gal 6:14 But may I never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world!
(ISV)
5)Rom 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 6)1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

Crimson Love, shed at the cross.
Redeemed by the Blood of God’s Lamb.

Jesus, God’s Atonement For Sin

Gen 3:21 The LORD God fashioned garments from animal skins for Adam and his wife, and clothed them.
(ISV)

Praise God. His Love, His mercy, endures forever.
From the beginning, at our first sin,
When we were disobedient, and rebelled,
The Way of salvation was shown.1)Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
(KJV)

The Way to live in Jesus given.2)Rom 13:14 Instead, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus, the Messiah, and do not obey your flesh and its desires.
(ISV)

The first sacrifice was made, and blood was shed, to cover our iniquity.
And save us from death.3)Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in union with the Messiah Jesus our Lord.
(ISV)

We sometimes don’t realize, that the first death in this world was a sacrifice to cover our first sin,
and points to the real first sacrifice and our salvation, the Lamb Slain From The Foundation Of The World, Jesus.

Abel understood, and God favored him for that.4)Gen 4:4 while Abel offered the best parts of some of the firstborn from his flock. The LORD looked favorably upon Abel and his offering,
Gen 4:5 but he did not look favorably upon Cain and his offering. When Cain became very upset and depressed,
Gen 4:6 the LORD asked Cain, “Why are you so upset? Why are you depressed?
Gen 4:7 If you do what is appropriate, you’ll be accepted, won’t you? But if you don’t do what is appropriate, sin is crouching near your doorway, turning toward you. However, you must take dominion over it.”
(ISV)

God instituted blood sacrifice, because it was always his intention to redeem us by the blood of Jesus shed at the cross.
And through that sacrifice, provide an everlasting covering for our sins.
He wraps us in salvation5)Isa 61:10 “I will heartily rejoice in the LORD, my soul will delight in my God; for he has wrapped me in garments of salvation; he has arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, just like a bridegroom, like a priest with a garland, and like a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
(ISV)
, in Jesus.
Abba Daddy covers us with the best thing he has, like all good fathers.6)Luk 15:22 But the father told his servants, ‘Hurry! Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.
(ISV)

O Lamb Of God, Saviour Of Our World,
Lamb Slain From The Foundation Of The World!
We Worship You.
Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!
Thank You For Your Faithfulness.
Thank You For Your Blood Shed At The Cross.
And Let All The Glory Be To God.
Amen.

Jesus, God’s Atonement For Sin
Praise God For Providing Jesus As Our Covering.
