SERMON: IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BLOOD
11:00 AM Service | Sunday, August 7, 2022
1st Peter 1:18-19
(18) Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; (19) But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.
The theme of the Bible is the blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus is seen as a scarlet thread that runs from Genesis to Revelation. If it were possible to remove the blood, what would we have? We would have a Bible without a heart, a gospel without saving power, and a message that is hopeless. The Bible magnifies the blood. Peter calls it “precious” blood.
1. The Blood Is The Price Of Our Redemption.
(1st Corinthians 6:20; 1st Corinthians 7:23.)
2. The Blood Is The Promise Of Our Peace.
3. The Blood Is The Power To Overcome The Works Of Satan.
There is no substitute for the blood. So long as God is holy and humans are sinful, there will be a need for the blood. The old preachers put it this way: “If you ever get to heaven, it will be through the blood.” The hymn writer put it this way:
“God leads his dear children,
Some through the water,
Some through the flood,
Some through the fires,
But all through the blood.”
Give God Glory! Give God All The Glory!
The topic of this sermon was a phrase that the late Pastor Joseph Simpson of Gulfport, Mississippi would repeatedly say, especially during communion service. Of course, he was on point; it is all about the blood!
