The blood that Jesus shed for me, way back on Calvary, the blood that gives me strength from day to day, it will never lose its power! For it reaches to the highest mountain and it flows to the lowest valleys, the blood that gives me strength from day to day, It will never lose its power!
There was a time when our loving Father looked down from heaven and had seen that sin was conquering and that man hadn't the ability to overcome it, the plan would be to clothe Himself in flesh, come to this earth, walk among us and then pay the ultimate penalty for our sins which was His death on the cross!
It was this precious blood that flowed from the body of Jesus, the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world, the Lamb of God that would take away the sins of the world, the innocent blood of Jesus that would make me whole again!
What shall wash my sins away, NOTHING but the blood of Jesus. What shall make me whole again, NOTHING but the blood of Jesus!
There is power in the blood! Life sustaining! Wound healing! Sin forgiving! Strength providing! POWER!!!
As I was living my life in sin, doing only what I wanted to do according to my own will I came to an Old Rugged Cross by the way of attending a few church services and learning from my pastor the word of God! I had learned that the penalty of my sins was death. Yes I would have to die because I had sinned against God as all humanity had! But where sin did abound Grace did much more abound! A second chance was offered to me in the scriptures, if I were to escape death I would have to except another's sacrifice in place of my own. The only sacrifice that was ever made that would cover the multitude of sins was that of the blood of Jesus Christ!
As I had accepted His death in place of my own the only requirement on my part is that I now would surrender my life to Him! I was bought with the blood of Jesus and am no longer my own! I was to deny myself take up my cross and follow Him! To follow Him and to live the life that I would lead I needed to be born again of water and of the Spirit! I was born of the water in baptism where I now had taken on His name and born of the Spirit when filled with the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in another tongue!
Now born again, sins forgiven and all things have become new I take the time to thank Him for the blood! Thank God for the blood that washes white as snow! The power in blood that had once washed my sins away, remains yet today. It will never lose its POWER!
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
