The Blood


One night in a church service a young woman felt the tug of God at her heart. She responded 
to God's call and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. The young woman had a very rough
past, involving alcohol, drugs, and prostitution. But, the change in her was evident. As time 
went on she became a faithful member of the church. She eventually became involved in the 
ministry, teaching young children. It was not very long until this faithful young woman had 
caught the eye and heart of the pastor's son. The relationship grew and they began to make 
wedding plans. This is when the problems began. 

You see, about one half of the church did not think that a woman with a past such as hers was 
suitable for a pastor's son. The church began to argue and fight about the matter. So they 
decided to have a meeting. As the people made their arguments and tensions increased, the 
meeting was getting completely out of hand. The young woman became very upset about all the
things being brought up about her past. As she began to cry the pastor's son stood to speak.

He could not bear the pain it was causing his wife to be. He began to speak and his statement 
was this: " My fiancée's past is not what is on trial here. What you are questioning is the ability 
of the blood of Jesus to wash away sin. Today you have put the blood of Jesus on trial. So, 
does it wash away sin or not?" 

The whole church began to weep as they realized that they had been slandering the blood of the 
Lord Jesus Christ. Too often, even as Christians, we bring up the past and use it as a weapon 
against our brothers and sisters. Forgiveness is a very foundational part of the Gospel of the Lord
Jesus Christ. If the blood of Jesus does not cleanse the other person completely then it cannot 
cleanse us completely. If that is the case, then we are all in a lot of trouble. What can wash 
away my sins, nothing but the blood of Jesus....end of case!!!
