What’s Blood got to Do with Anything?

Second excerpt from Living in the Spirit.

As a Matter of Fancy

Excerpt from Living in the Spirit, pages 27-31

This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. Romans 3:22-25

Simply and scripturally, Jesus died in our place. We’ve already established that we’re all sinners, unfit for any mercy from our creator. As unrepentant sinners we’re also unfit to even seek forgiveness. But that same creator set in motion the means of our justification, our sanctification and our glorification before we drew our first breath.

Starting in Genesis, nearly every holy moment of the Old Testament is sealed with blood. Why blood?
