Washed in the Blood

To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, . . . be glory  and dominion forever and ever.

Revelation 1:5-6, nkjv

In our pleasure-seeking, anything-goes, feel-good society, guilt is anathema. We run from it through frantic activity, drown it in alcohol, drug it with Prozac, escape it through entertainment, talk about it to a therapist, blame it on someone else, suppress it through mental gymnastics, but we can’t rid ourselves of it! It’s like a stain that won’t come out of our clothes no matter how many wash cycles we put it through or what kind of detergent we use because the stain has become part of the fabric! The only thing that can “wash away” our sin and guilt before God is the blood of Jesus Christ. So God has given us a conscience with a guilt alarm that goes off when sin enters so that we might go to Jesus Christ for cleansing.
