THE EFFICACY OF CHRIST’S BLOOD 2
Main text: Ephesians 1:7-8 – “In him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished upon us”
Hebrews 9:22 – “… Without the shedding of blood, there is no forgiveness of sins”
It is the truth; therefore that it is His person that imparts to its efficacy. Had He only been man, His death could not have availed for all; had He only been God, He could not have died; but being what He was “very God and very man” He not only was qualified as the spotless man to offer Himself as sacrifice for sin, but His divinity added such efficacy to His precious blood that it suffices for the need of all who believe in His name.
Understand it well, then that it is not the blood of Christ apart from Himself that avails before God, it is Christ Himself rather in the efficacy of His blood. It is on this account, for example that the apostle speaks after this manner “In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins (Ephesians 1:7).
The blood of Christ is absolute protection against the accusation of Satan, the defeating reminders of past sins, and the down pull of our Adamic nature
THE PASSPORT TO HEAVEN IS ONLY SIGNED BY JESUS’ BLOOD.
