Nothing But The Blood

know-his-blood

“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us. In all wisdom and insight…” Ephesians 1:7-8, NASB

This wee’s song is Nothing But The Blood. In my church we will be singing the version that Matt Redman made, but it is actually based on a hymn. Both songs ask the question “What can take away my sin?” This is a basic question we face when we realized we have sinned. People tend to decide that they can get rid of their sin by “doing good”. Others believe that it was by making sacrifice that we get rid of our sin. But the answer lies on the Cross. The refrain of the hymn says this:

“O, precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus”

This song tells us that Try as we might, nothing can remove our sin from us but the blood of Jesus. The blood that was poured out for all mankind as a means to remove sin. God did this for us. There is nothing we can do, nothing else will satisfy the need of salvation. God died on the Cross for us, and that is the only way we can be saved of our sins.
