THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS
13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ
All of us were born in a state far off from the Lord. We lived a life controlled by the pursuit of natural and worldly desires. In these last days, the Lord has appeared to show His love to mankind by the pouring out of His blood on the cross. We have been brought near by the precious blood of Jesus. All of us had gone our own ways, all of us have lived a selfish, ungodly life, and because of that, the Father sent His only Son to represent us by His death on the cross. His darkest day became our brightest day. His blood was spilt as He was brutally beaten and nailed to a cross. Rejected by His people and crucified by the Romans, He had you in mind all along. After all, you are the reason He came. His love for you compelled Him to come. His love for you was displayed by His death, and today that same love is poured out on us by the Holy Spirit. It is His love that caused Him to come near. Today, we can come as near as we want, through the precious blood of Jesus.
