When does the blood save?

MOORE — Welcome, American readers. We are grateful for your presence today as we take a little time to read a portion from the Word of God. We will start this study with a question intended for you: When does the blood of Christ save?

The Son of God, Jesus the Christ, accomplished for us the remission of sins by means of his blood shed in His death on the cross when we accept the conditions of pardon.

While He died for all mankind, it is only those who participate in the redemption of the cross by the terms of the Gospel that enjoy its benefits. “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:” (Colossians 1:14). “For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins” (Matthew 26:28).

The apostle Peter confirms that we were redeemed “with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” (1 Peter 1:19) and then adds, “Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth” (1 Peter 1:22).

The Hebrew writer states that by the suffering death of Christ, “he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him” (Hebrews 5:9). Therefore, we enthusiastically proclaim the blood of Christ saves (Romans 5:8-9).

The question that remains is “When does the sinner reach the blood of Christ for our salvation?”

It is clear that redemption is found only in the blood of Christ as found in Ephesians 1:7 “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace” and also in Colossians 1:14 “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.”

Therefore no one can be saved apart from the blood of Christ. It must also be noted that “redemption through his blood” is gained through him — Jesus the Christ.
