The Blood: Andrew Murray


“God Has No Other Way of Dealing with Sin or the Sinner Except Through the Blood For victory over sin and the deliverance of the sinner, God has provided no other means or thought than the blood of Christ. Yes, it is indeed something that surpasses all understanding.

All the wonders of grace are focused in the blood: The incarnation, by which He took upon Himself our flesh and blood (John 1:14)

The love that spared not itself but surrendered itself to death (Romans 5:8)

The righteousness, the forgiveness by redemption through his blood (Ephesians 1:7)

The substitution, the righteous One atoned for the unrighteous (2 Corinthians 5:21)

The atonement for sin (Hebrews 2:17)

The justification made possible renewed fellowship with God (2 Corinthians 5:18)

The cleansing and sanctification to fit us for that fellowship (Ephesians 5:25-27)

The true oneness in life with the Lord Jesus, as He gives His life (John 17:11, 21) T

he eternal joy of the hymn of praise, Thou . . . hast redeemed us unto God (Revelation 5:9)

All these are but rays of the wondrous light, which are reflected upon us from the precious blood of Jesus.
