"Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you." Luke 22:20
IN JESUS TODAY!
God has said,
"All we like sheep have gone astray" Isaiah 53:6 and "all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
For this cause Jesus has given his life through the shedding of His blood, as we read,
"And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without the shedding of blood there is no remission." Hebrews 9:22
In remembering Jesus we take communion, remembering that Jesus shed his blood so that our sins would be forgiven. He shed His blood for you and for me! Now at the cross we can come and we have a New Testament which allows us to receive God's son, Jesus, who shed His blood for us, once for all. In the Old Testament, once a year the blood of an unblemished lamb was used to pay for our sins, however, this had to change because it was not enough to remove our sins from our conscience, only through the blood of God's son, Jesus Christ, can our sins be washed away from our conscience permanently.
YOUR SINS HAVE BEEN REMOVED…
They are no longer remembered and they are cast away, once for all! Jesus makes all things perfect. Jesus did for us what we could not do for ourselves. Through Jesus' shed blood we now can live out a fully restored relationship with God.
It doesn't matter what people think, say, or do towards you, if you have received Jesus and have confessed your sins to Him then your sins are forgiven, never to be remembered again. None of your works or anyone's works could ever accomplish this forgiveness, only Jesus and His shed blood can make you whole again!
YOU ARE FORGIVEN!
