The blood still works


People are feeling uncertain with the pandemic of COVID-19. To feel uncertain means to feel hopeless. While some put their trust in governments, we find they, too, are hopeless and without defense. While the government is trying to help the economy, it cannot cure the virus and therefore remains defenseless. The stock market is failing, therefore investments are being lost. Today, we need what works.

God delivered the children of Israel by the blood. He commanded them to kill a lamb of sacrifice and place the blood over the door posts of their houses. He caused the death angel to ride at night to smite the first born of the Egyptians, but the Lord said, "... And when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you..." (Exodus12:13). This was the Lord's Passover. The blood was the protection and safety for the children of Israel. They were delivered by obedience and the blood.

Today, we are like the children of Israel. We need deliverance and protection not just from the coronavirus but the sin virus as well. Remember that God loved us so much that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but shall have everlasting life (John 3:16 paraphrased).

Jesus is our sacrificial lamb. God gave Him to die for us. He went to the cross and shed His blood so we can be covered. Today, the blood still works! It delivered the children of Israel, and it will deliver you. For your protection, be covered in the blood of Jesus Christ. He is risen! Accept Him as your Lord and Savior!
