The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

1 John 1:7

When I donated blood some time ago, a nurse gave me a card to read while the vital red fluid was flowing out of my vein. The card showed the percentages of people who have different blood types. Here are some of them:

O-Positive 37.4% A-Positive 35.7% A-Negative 6.3% B-Negative 1.5%

The rarest, AB-Negative, is found in only 1 in 167 people, or 0.6% of the population. Then the card made this eye-catching statement: “The rarest blood type is the one that’s not there when you need it.”

As I read the card, I noticed that there was one blood type not mentioned. This blood type is one of a kind and is always available to those who ask for it. The Bible says in 1 John 1:7 “The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

It was the death of Christ, and by the shedding of His blood, that satisfied the demand of a holy God as payment for our sins (Hebrews 9:12,22). So now, whenever a person cries out in faith to God, repenting of their sin and pleading for forgiveness, their prayer for salvation is heard and answered.

I am deeply grateful that the Friend of sinners, the Lord Jesus Christ, was willing to die on the cross, giving His blood for me, so that forgiveness was available when I needed it. Aren’t you?

Bible Reading

Hebrews 9:11-22.


Great Jehovah God, Thank You, that the blood of the Saviour Jesus, washed away completely the stain of sin, and reconciles sinners with You. Amen.
