Jesus' blood shed on the Cross at Calvary brought ten amazing benefits for all who put their trust in him.
1. FORGIVENESS OF SINS
The Law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness (of sins). HEBREWS 9:22
Jesus said: " This is My Blood of the New Covenant, which is shed for many for the forgiveness of sins." MATTHEW 26:28
2. REDEMPTION / BOUGHT BACK FROM SATAN'S OWNERSHIP
In Christ Jesus we have redemption through His Blood and forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace.
3. CLEANSING FROM THE STAIN OF SIN
You have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father by the sanctifying work of the Spirit so we may obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled clean by His Blood. 1 PETER 1:2
If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another & the Blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin. 1 JOHN 1:8-9
What can wash away my stain? Nothing but the Blood of Jesus.
What can make me clean again? Nothing but the Blood of Jesus.
O precious is the flow That makes me clean as snow;
No other fount I know, Nothing but the Blood of Jesus.
4. SUBSTITUTIONARY SACRIFICE FOR SIN
God publicly demonstrated a sacrifice in His Blood through faith to demonstrate His righteousness because in His forbearance He passed over the sins we had previously committed. ROMANS 3:25
5. SAVED FROM GOD'S WRATH & JUDGEMENT:
JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH
God demonstrates His love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. So then having been justified by His Blood, we shall be saved from God's wrath through Jesus. ROMANS 5:8-9
