Easter 2022, Part 2: Power in the Blood

Power in the Blood
-Roy Lessin and Marina Bromley, Meeting in the Meadow


The hymn writer, Lewis E. Jones, penned these faith inspiring words, “There is power in the blood of the Lamb.” 


What kind of power? There is power in the blood to atone, to forgive, to redeem, to save, to cleanse, to justify, to sanctify, and to give us access to the Father in prayer.


One day, the blood of the Lamb of God will make it possible for you to be in heaven and stand before the throne of God to be a part of the greatest worship service ever known on earth or in heaven...


I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes and held palm branches in their hands. And they were shouting with a mighty shout, “Salvation comes from our God who sits on the throne and from the Lamb!” (Revelation 7:9-10 NLT).


How powerful is the blood of Jesus? Here is what His shed blood has provided for you:


Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins (Romans 3:24 NLT).


More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation (Romans 5:11 ESV).


Whom God displayed publicly [before the eyes of the world] as a [life-giving] sacrifice of atonement and reconciliation (propitiation) by His blood [to be received] through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness [which demands punishment for sin], because in His forbearance [His deliberate restraint] He passed over the sins previously committed [before Jesus’ crucifixion] (Romans 3:25 AMP).


So then as through one trespass [Adam’s sin] there resulted condemnation for all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men (Romans 5:18 AMP).


For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:19 NLT).


God the Father knew you and chose you long ago, and his Spirit has made you holy. As a result, you have obeyed him and have been cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ. May God give you more and more grace and peace (1 Peter 1:2 NLT).


And you also are among those Gentiles who are called to belong to Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16 NIV).

While we continue to remember the sacrifice of Jesus’ blood for our sins, we are able to celebrate that the story didn’t end on the cross, but continued with the revelation of the empty tomb—and it didn't end in the empty tomb, but as He revealed His risen self to those that He loved. Because He lives, we know we will live with Him in the heavenlies! Hallelujah! -Marina
