The Blood of Jesus is an evangelistic Christian gospel tract explaining the power of the blood of Jesus God’s Son to cleanse us from every sin.
EXTRACT: “It was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed … but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect” (1 Peter 1:18-19).
What a strange statement! True, though gold is very resilient it is not imperishable—it will tarnish eventually. Blood, on the other hand, is certainly perishable, it goes off quickly. Ans yet Peter insists that gold has less value than Jesus’ blood.
Gold (or wealth) is what the world values above everything. But this world’s wealth carries no spiritual value at all; whilst the blood of Jesus produces something of lasting value. When heaven and earth vanish, the redeeming power of Christ’s blood will continue forever.
Men speak of “precious metals” but God’s word speaks of “the precious blood of Christ.” It does what money cannot do – it cleanses sinners. No one can claim to be without sin. In fact, it is self-deception to say we have no sin. “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8).
Everyone has a sin problem. No amount of gold or silver could ever make restitution for even one sin against God. That’s why Christ’s blood is so precious. It is the only substance with enough power to erase our debt of sin.
The apostle John said, “The blood of Jesus Christ [God’s] Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).
