July 2010: Are you discounting the Blood?
We're all guilty of this one, whether or not we realize it. Which is greater? Our past sins? Our most evil failures? The nasty addictions that we've fallen into 1,000 times? Or the Blood of the Son of God?
Do you realize that every time you look back at a forgiven sin, and still feel guilty or wonder if it's been forgiven due to the extent of your failure, you are limiting the power of the Blood? You are limiting the work of the Cross. You are saying that your failure is greater than what Jesus did for you. What kind of powerless and religiously perverted gospel are you believing anyways?!
We need to get things strait once and for all. How powerful is the Blood of Jesus? Does the Bible tell us that it only forgives little sins? Quite the contrary; as a matter of fact, Jesus told us that he who is forgiven much, loves much. His level of gratitude is much greater than the person who has only been forgiven of little. But that's only when the person realizes that they've truly been forgiven. The bigger your failure, the greater your gratitude ought to be for the Blood of Jesus washing it away. You should be overflowing with thankfulness and great joy in your heart because even your greatest failures have been washed away by the Blood! If not, then it's because you doubt how powerful the Blood of Jesus is. What a mockery for what He's done for you! Take God's Word seriously, and accept the work that Christ has done for you!
What Satan tries to do is get us to see our sin and failures as greater than the Blood of Jesus. He wants us to discount and mock the precious Blood of Jesus, and consider it powerless against our sin - my friend, this is satanic... this is a doctrine of demons! WAKE UP to what Satan is trying to get you to do here, and begin to thank God that His son's Blood is greater than all your failures!
