Does The Blood Of Jesus Christ truly wash away our Sins?
One night in a church service, a young women felt the tug of God at her heart. She responded to God’s call and accepted Jesus Christ as her personal savior and Lord. The young woman had a rough past, involving alcohol, drugs, and prostitution. The change in her was evident. As time went on she became a faithful member of the church. She eventually became involved in the ministry, teaching young children. It was not very long this faithful young woman caught the eye of the pastor’s son. The relationship grew and they began making wedding plans. But they faced opposition from those around them. Half of the church members didn’t think that a person with past such as hers was suitable for the pastor’s son. The church members began argue and fight about the matter. So, they decided to have a church meeting. The people argued, tensions increased, the meeting was getting out of hand. The young women, became upset all the things being brought up about her past. As she began to cry. The pastor’s son stood to speak. He could no longer bear the pain it was causing his wife to be. He began to speak and his statement was this: “My fiancée’s past is not what’s on trial here. What you are questioning is the ability of the Blood of Jesus Christ to wash away sin. Today you have put the Blood of Jesus Christ on Trial. So, does it wash away sin or not?” The whole church membership wept as they realized that they had been slandering the Blood of Jesus Christ. Too often, even Christians, we bring up the past against our brothers and sisters. Forgiveness is the very foundation of the Gospel. If the Blood of Jesus does not cleanse the other person completely, then it cannot cleanse us Completely. If that’s the case, then we are all in a lot of trouble. Like the old gospel song “What Can Wash Away My Sins, Nothing But the Blood Of Jesus.” What gives us the right to bring up anyone’s past and judge them. We are all sinners by nature and birth. Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. When God forgives a person of their past, present, and future sins. He never brings them up again. They are forgiven. Psalm 103:11-12 “For as heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us.” If God can forgive and forget. Why can’t we, are we better than God? Think about it!
