The “Blood” of Christ in the N.T.
The “Blood” of Christ in the N.T.
From “Purchase” to “Overcoming”
The precious blood of Christ is seen from the Word of God to be of great value to God and
efficacy for all saints of all ages. Although our appreciation of it may be somewhat feeble, it is
God the Father’s appreciation of it that is most important. It will forever satisfy God the Father
and it will be our eternal song. Redemption’s song will echo throughout the courts of heaven
for all eternity and we will never tire of it. In it we view God’s holiness, righteousness, and His
great sacrifice. We see the basis of our salvation, redemption, justification, sanctification and
by it we can have holy boldness to enter into the very presence of our God and Father in
worship, praise and prayer. Meditating on this subject is indeed holy ground and we should do
so with devoted and humbled hearts and unshod feet.

“… and when I see the
blood , I will pass over you; …” Ex. 12:13b

“… for the soul of the flesh is in the
blood ; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make
atonement for your souls: for it is the
blood that maketh atonement for the soul.” Lev. 17:11
