We know, because of the Gospel, and as evidenced by our study of Hebrews 10:32-39, that the Blood of Christ has redeemed us. Every day, even though we are sinners, the Blood purchases us, it glorifies us, it cleanses us, it sanctifies us, it secures us, it emboldens us... and yes, it saves us. Christ suffered for us, the perfect Lamb sacrificed for all who have faith. We need to endure for Him, to love Him, to long for Him, to turn to Him. O the Blood!
A wise pastor often shared with his congretation a beautiful truth: that Jesus on the cross represents "the death of death in the death of Christ." An amazing, life-changing notion, that we sinners, by the blood Jesus shed for us, have a relationship with God and that we, through grace by faith, have a place with Him in Heaven if we simply accept His free gift to us. Christ finished His work on the cross and through His blood, we are truly saved. That is the Gospel!
In this essential series for the cross-driven Christian, we delve into the inexplicable, incredible, awesome sacrifice Jesus Christ made for us, unworthy sinners, when he shed His precious blood at Calvary. Scripture tells us in Hebrews 9:1-14, the old covenants and rituals were rendered obselete by His death: Jesus, the Lamb of God, had and has forged a bridge between man and God, the Father, forever.
