The Blood of Jesus

How much more . . . will the blood of Christ . . . cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death.

Hebrews 9:14, niv

Do you know people who arrogantly insist that if their good works outweigh their bad works, God is somehow obligated to accept them? As you look around, what “fruit” do you see others bringing to the place of sacrifice instead of humbly approaching God through the blood of His Son? The “fruit” of

religious activity,
          good works,
                       morality,
                                 or philanthropy?

Many people do not want to come to the place of sacrifice, the Cross of Jesus Christ, because it intensifies the conviction of their own sin and judgment and is a reminder that heaven’s gate is closed to sinners. God warns that “a man is not justified by observing the law,” (Gal. 2:16, niv) because “without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness” of sin (Heb. 9:22, niv). So humble yourself, come to the Cross, and thank God for the blood of Jesus that is sufficient to forgive any and all sin.
