You Are Cleansed through the Blood of Jesus

We all love to have a brand new beginning in life. The first thing to do to have a new beginning is to accept that we are sinners. Christ died for sinners (Romans 5:8). Therefore you can look to him in faith and be saved.

Even after we accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, we do sin. So the Bible warns us not to say we have no sin. That makes God to be a liar (see 1 John 1:8 and 10). But then the Bible says, “If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin (1 John 1:7).”

Two things need to be noted. One, we have to agree with God the truthfulness of what he has shown as wrong and sinful in us. That is the meaning of walking in the light. The second thing is that cleansing promised is from all sin (not particular sins). That means there is no sin of yours that cannot be cleansed by the blood of Jesus.

David in an earlier generation understood his need to be cleansed. Therefore he prayed, “Create in me a pure heart O God (Psalm 51:10a).” The answer to that prayer is found for you today in the precious and cleansing blood of Jesus. His blood is the fountain of cleansing that Prophet Zechariah foretold (Zechariah 13:1). Are you washed clean by the blood of Jesus?
