Scripture Passage: John 6:53-57
What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. That’s the way the old hymn goes. It is a powerful truth simply stated: Only the precious blood of Jesus can wash you white as snow. Only the blood of Jesus can make you whole again.
But what if that was just the beginning? What if the Power in the Blood of Jesus did more than that? What if it continued its mighty work in our lives after our sins are washed away and we are whole again?
Good news! It does.
Adrian Rogers said, “Jesus is to your spirit what blood is to your body.” When we become Christians, our hearts pump new blood. We are equipped to live in victory over every circumstance. We are given the opportunity to heal from every heartache. And we are strengthened to bear every burden. It circulates resource after resource including every healing balm, every wise counsel, and every drop of grace that courses through the veins of our souls, keeping us strong in our faith and spiritually healthy.
It is all there.
Anything Jesus has overcome, we can overcome. We must learn how to possess the power that is already in our possession. This is what God has already given us through the powerful, wise blood of Jesus. Everything that we need to live the Christian life is in Jesus.
Today, we learn how to appropriate this power and transfer it into our own source of strength.
Do you feel weak in your spirit or like there’s a disconnect between the power that was promised and the power you feel in your life?
There is a remedy. The blood of Jesus mends the gap. It transforms the source of strength into strength of your own.
Jesus tells us in John 6:63 “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.”
Let His words abide in you today. Find the truth in scripture and live by them.
