Washes Away My Sin

nothing but his blood

In fact under the Law almost everything is cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness [neither release from sin and its guilt, nor cancellation of the merited punishment]. (Hebrews 9:22)

I love the old hymnal, “Nothing But The Blood”, by Robert Lowry, because it reminds me of the finished work of Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus has fulfilled the requirements of the law, by shedding His blood on the cross. He was crucified as the lamb of God, buried, and raised from the dead, has been given authority to forgive our sin (Matthew 9:2-6) and only He can make us right with our Heavenly Father (John 14:6).

“What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
O precious is the flow
that makes me white as snow;
no other fount I know;
nothing but the blood of Jesus. ”

Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the LordThough your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be like wool. (Isaiah 1:18)

Prayer:

Lord Jesus,

We say “thank you” with a grateful heart for being willing to be crucified on the cross for our sin, be buried, yet being fully made alive again by your resurrection.

I pray for Muslims, Atheists, and others alike who refuse to see your salvation for their sins. May your Holy Spirit convict them of their sins, convince them of their need for you, and remind them of the judgement to come. For today is the day of salvation for everyone who chooses to believe. Amen.
