“And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb, and by the Word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.” Revelation 12:11
Today as I pondered upon the celebration of Easter, it was impressed upon me that this is a day that cannot be celebrated once in a year; but on a daily basis. We are constantly reminded that the redemption of man from sin required the shedding of blood. It was only the Blood from the Lamb of God which was acceptable before God to redeem Man from Sin; and this blood ‘speaks’ and strongly bears on our life today and in Eternity.
Yes, every day we are in combat with the enemy, a battle that we should not take lightly as it is a mistake to underestimate our adversary. Still, it is a battle we have a Hope to Win because of the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ which was shed! ….It is because of that blood that our sins are forgiven and our ‘sickness’ which comes across in different ailments can be healed as captured in Psalms 103:3. We have this assurance today because of the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ; thus the shedding of the blood of Jesus Christ was not in Vain.
Today, you and I can be overcomers in the Lord Jesus Christ…. in this life and Eternity!
As we confess our sins; become washed by the precious blood of the lamb and acknowledge the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour….we are also reminded that our words and actions reflect whom we love Most – either self or the Lord Jesus Christ.
Every day, each stride we take in our daily walk as Christians; let us hold fast to the assurance that we are able to Stand in Christianity…let alone fight a winning battle to the very end, because of the blood of the Lamb of God.
The shedding of the blood of the Lamb was not in Vain!
