There are a lot of people walking around lifeless. Current events have drained them of any energy or enthusiasm. Even some of the more optimistic people have lost their positive outlook. You can bring the life back into your heart if you are struggling. All you need is for the blood of Jesus to cover your sins.
“For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood by reason of the life that makes atonement.’”
Symbol of Life
In the Old Testament, the Israelites weren’t allowed to touch the blood of a person or animal, or they would become unclean. The reason for that is blood was the symbol of life. You can have flesh and bones, but it was the blood that gives life. That is also why blood was used in the sacrifices. It was one life for another. It would make atonement for a person’s sin and set them in a right relationship with God. An animal’s blood was used, but it was never satisfactory for God. That is why He sent His Son to come and be our sacrifice.
Jesus was the perfect substitute to make atonement for your sins. When His blood was shed on the cross, it was the sacrifice that satisfied God’s wrath against the sin in your life. God is holy and cannot exist where unholiness, or sin, exists. Your sin separates you from God, and He won’t be satisfied until that is corrected. He wants an unbroken relationship with you.
Bring the Life Back
Are you right with God? Is there lingering sin that you need for which you need to seek forgiveness? If so, go and get right. 1 John 1:9 says, “If you confess your sins, He is faithful and just to forgive you.” Bring the life back into your heart by getting right with God.
