The Blood: Our Agent of Purification and Central Supply

Greetings to you all in the matchless name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Once again it is my pleasure to address the Emmanuel family through this month Newsletter. This year, Lent starts on February 17 which is also known as Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. The time of Lent through fasting and abstaining, may be an important reminder of what it means to suffer. This small suffering should not be met with misery but with great joy as we better understand the incredible sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for humanity.

As blood moves through your system, it removes waste material from your body. Likewise, the Bible explains that: “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).

This cleansing is powerful! Jesus warned the Pharisees, “For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness” (Matthew 23:27). The cleansing power of the Lord’s blood purifies our hearts from the inside out. Just as your blood carries away waste from your system, Jesus’ shed blood removes the filth of sin and uncleanness from your daily life. His blood purifies your heart perfectly so that you actually become a temple of God!

Blood is also the central supply to each of your body’s cells, of which there are millions. Each cell in your body receives new blood—new life—every 50 seconds! The life-giving substance of blood constantly supplies your body with strength to continue living.

The shed blood of Jesus gives us continual life too: “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:54).

Through the blood of Jesus, you now have a full supply of abundant life—divine, eternal life that sprang forth the moment you were born again! From that moment, you stepped into a new life—the life of God became your life, to sustain and strengthen you forever!
   

Your loving,
