1 Peter 1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
The belief (in eternal punishment) is necessary to teach us to make a fit estimate of the price of Christ’s blood, to value sufficiently the work of our redemption, to acknowledge and admire the love of God to us in Christ. – Bishop Pearson
How Precious is The Blood?
How precious is the blood of Christ to you? The value of something is determined by what someone is willing to pay for it. Christ was willing to pay for our own souls with His blood and take our punishment in hell. The question is, do we really value what Christ did for us by His sacrifice on the cross?
The Value of the Blood
Now that he has cleansed us, we need to walk in the light as he is in the light. Christ was the spotless lamb of God who took your punishment and mine. How much value do you put on that blood. Do you value the life he bought that is in you? Have you given him the life back that he purchased? If you have, you show how much you think the blood of Christ is worth. It is worth the whole world in Christ’s eyes. What about you?
