So In Love With Holiness

Christ is so in love with holiness, that at the price of His blood, He will buy it for us!

See the greatness and dreadfulness of that breach which sin made between God and us. No less a sacrifice than Christ himself must make atonement. Judge of the greatness of the wound which sin made, by the magnitude of the remedy which Christ made.

All our repentance, could we shed as many tears for sin, as there have fallen drops of rain since the creation, could not have atoned for our sin!

[John Flavel]

Hebrews 9:12 ... Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

Hebrews 13:12 ... Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

1 Peter 1:16 ... Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

Acts 20:28 ... Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
