William Cowper once wrote a powerful hymn that still moves my heart. Verse one says:
There is a fountain filled with blood Drawn from Immanuel’s veins;
And sinners, plunged beneath the flood, Lose all their guilty stains:
Lose all their guilty stains, Lose all their guilty stains;
And sinners, plunged beneath that flood, Lose all their guilty stains.
When Jesus died on the cross, He literally paid the price, the debt, for our sin. How amazing is that? In our society we don’t like to talk about blood, but your salvation is dependent upon Jesus shedding His lifeblood for you. This is why we consider His blood Precious. It is more valuable to us that all the good works we could accomplish or all the money we could ever give.
The next time you connect with God in worship or Bible study, remember His precious blood that cleanses all your sin.
