Cleansing Blood

Christ's blood is a CLEANSING blood. As the merit of Christ's blood pacifies God—so the virtue of it purifies us. Christ's blood is heaven's bath. It is a laver to wash in. It washes a crimson sinner— milk-white!

But this blood will not wash—if it is mingled with anything. If we mingle our good works with Christ's blood—it will not wash. Let Christ's blood be pure and unmixed—and there is no spot which it cannot wash away!

[Thomas Watson]

Zechariah 13:1 … In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.

Ephesians 2:8-9 … For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

1 Peter 1:18-19 … Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

Ephesians 2:13 … But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. ♥
