The Blood of Jesus -Luke 22:20

The Blood of Jesus Luke 22:20

Why do we talk so much about the blood of Jesus, even celebrate it? In this Luke 22:20 devotional, we’ll find out why Jesus’ blood is so important to us and why His sacrifice on the cross is the most important moment in human history.

Nothing But the Blood of Jesus

I grew up singing the song Nothing but the Blood of Jesus in church most Sundays. And I bet you did too. The lyrics of this song have a significant meaning to all Christians. It speaks to the power of the blood of Jesus. However, it’s not something I gave a lot of thought to until it was brought to my attention.

Recently, I was asked, “Why do you sing songs about the blood of Jesus in church? Isn’t it a little bit macabre to sing about blood?”

I admit, these questions jolted me out of my “Christian bubble”. It seems so normal to me to sing about the blood of Jesus. But it’s something we should think about and discuss in detail.

So, today I’d like to turn to the Word of God and take you through some of the blood of Jesus scriptures that shed meaning on the significance of the blood of Christ.

 

What does Luke 22:20 mean?

 

This cup is a new covenant in My blood, which was shed for you.

                                                  Luke 22:20 NKJV

A few times each year we participate in the Lord’s Supper. Or if you’re Catholic you probably do it more often and call it Communion. Either way, it is the remembrance of the body and blood of Jesus.

In this Bible verse from Luke 22, Jesus commanded us to remember His sacrifice and the blood He shed for us on the cross through the Lord’s supper.

Because it’s by His blood sacrifice that we are redeemed and have victory over death.

But why do we need a blood sacrifice, to begin with?

Significance of Blood Sacrifice in the Old Testament

To understand the importance of the blood of Jesus, we need to look at the Old Testament covenant when people lived under the Law of Moses and made animal sacrifices . Through these sacrifices the sins of the people would be forgiven by God.

That may seem strange to us now, but it was God’s way and commonplace during this time period.

For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.

                                                   Leviticus 17: 11 NKJV

 

God has given blood a significant role to play in our lives, specifically the shedding of blood. It has the power to give us forgiveness of sins.

And before Jesus came to earth, people were required to sacrifice animals for this forgiveness or atonement.

But this old covenant redemption was only temporary, and another sacrifice was required to stay within the grace of God.

Importance of the Blood of Jesus

What does the blood of Jesus do for us? Why do we talk about it so much, even celebrate it? And why is His blood so important?

Because Blood = Life!

If there is no blood, then there is no life.

Just as it is true that without blood in our bodies we will die physically, the same is true, that without a blood sacrifice we will die spiritually.

But there is life in Jesus’ blood.

That’s why God sent Jesus to be our sacrifice. He died once and saved us from our sin permanently.

Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood, He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.

                                                 Hebrews 9:12 NKJV

Saved by the Blood of Jesus

When Jesus died on the cross a new covenant between God and His people was formed. We no longer live under Old Testament law, and we no longer need to offer the blood of animals as a sacrifice for our sins.

Under the blood of Jesus and this new covenant, our salvation comes directly from the blood sacrifice of Jesus. And one drop of His blood has the power to save us eternally!

 For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.                                             

                                               Hebrews 10:14 NIV

 

Because Jesus is perfect, His sacrifice is also perfect. It doesn’t need to be repeated over and over again.

It is His selfless sacrifice on the cross that washes away our sin and gives us eternal life with Him.

for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

                                                Matthew 26:28 ESV

For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins.

                                               Hebrews 10:4 NKJV

Previously saying, “Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the law), then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.” He takes away the first that He may establish the second. By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

                                                 Hebrews 10:8-10 NKJV

The Precious Blood of Jesus Christ

 

For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.

                                                 1 Peter 1:18-19 NIV

We were bought for a price. Not an earthy cost of silver or gold.

But with the precious blood of Christ Jesus.

He is the Lamb who was slain for us. Christ’s blood, His precious blood flowing over us cleanses us of all unrighteousness and redeems us of all sin and shame.

Because of His sacrifice, we can call ourselves children of God!

The Blood that Jesus Shed for Me

The blood that Jesus shed is the only way to salvation. And all you need to do to share in this redemption is…

First, believe Jesus is the Son of God.

Second, know He died for your sins.

And lastly, accept Him as your Savior.

He has already done the rest!

Here’s how the Bible Verse from 1 John explains it…

But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

                                                  1 John 1:7-9 NKJV

If you are not a believer in Jesus, my prayer is for you to understand the sacrifice He made for your sins on the cross and see His great love for you today.

If want to know what the blood of Jesus can do in your life, or you have questions about what it means to accept Jesus as your Savior… please read “Accepting Jesus”.

You’ll find a list of scriptures that will answer your questions in this short devotional. I also encourage you to talk to a minister at a church in your area. I know they’ll be happy to explain anything I may have left out.

If you are saved, then I rejoice with you that you are redeemed. And your sins are forgiven and washed away by the blood of Jesus!

I pray you’ll be encouraged and uplifted today by this reminder of what the blood of Christ has done for you!

New Testament Bible Verses about the Power of the Blood of Christ

In the following verses, the Apostle Paul explains the redeeming power of the blood of Christ. The old system of forgiveness was over. And the new was ushered in.

And through these scriptures, we can see how the death of Jesus on the cross was always God’s plan for the redemption of mankind.

But only the high priest entered the inner room, and that only once a year, and never without blood, which he offered for himself and for the sins the people had committed in ignorance.

                                                 Hebrews 9:7 NIV

But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.

                                                Hebrews 9:11 NKJV

how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.

                                               Hebrews 9:14 ESV

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

                                             Ephesians 2:10 ESV

For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

                                            Colossians 1:19-20 ESV

Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

                                            Hebrews 10:19-22 ESV

let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.

                                             Hebrews 10:22 NIV

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.

                                            Ephesians 1:7-10 ESV

The Blood of the Lamb

The power of Christ’s blood still redeems today!

And the mention of blood in the book of Revelation and John’s gospel shows us that the blood of Jesus will continue to be the most important sacrifice ever offered until the end of time.

answered, “Sir, you know.” And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

                                             Revelation 7:14 NIV

And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.

                                            Revelation 12:11 ESV

And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.

                                           Revelation 5:9 NIV

Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.

                                          John 6:54 NIV

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

                                         John 1:29 NKJV

Through the shedding of His blood on the cross of Calvary, Jesus made a way for us to have remission of sin. And because of Jesus’ sacrifice, we can have grace, the free gift of God that only comes from accepting God’s Son as our Savior.

I pray you have learned the significance of the blood of Jesus in this short Bible Study. And that you will give your life to the Lord Jesus Christ and have eternal life in Him today!

Nehemiah 9:5 Free Printable Christian Art for Halloween

For most people, Halloween is a dark and mysterious day filled with ghosts and goblins. But for Christians, this is a confusing holiday. Do we dress up and pass out candy to the neighborhood kids, or just close the door and leave the light off?

Personally, I like to spend this day reflecting on the glorious light of my Savior and Lord Jesus Christ.

So, please allow me to share this scripture with you…

Blessed be Your glorious name,
Which is exalted above all blessing and praise!

Nehemiah 9:5 NKJV

What immediately comes to mind when you read this Bible verse about the Lord’s name? Can you think of a time when God did something amazing in your life?

Like me I’m sure, you can recall quite a few of those moments.

So, to celebrate Halloween, let’s look back and remember all the Lord has done for us this past year. And bless His glorious name together!

Does the Devil Know Your Name? -Acts 19:15

Does the Devil Know Your Name? Acts 19:15

Does the Devil Know Your Name?

If you’re a Christian the simple answer is yes.

But for a deeper explanation let’s read Acts 19 and uncover the meaning of this scripture…

 

But also some of the Jewish exorcists, who went from place to place, attempted to name over those who had the evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, “I adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preaches.”                     

And the evil spirit answered and said to them, “I recognize Jesus, and I know about Paul, but who are you?”

                                                                                    Acts 19:13;15

The devil may seem like a strange topic for us to study. In our society, you just don’t talk about Satan and his demons, unless you want people to point at you and call you crazy.

That being said, the devil and his demons are very real and they are out to take down Christians any way they can.

As Christians, there is an important lesson for us to take away from this verse from Acts 19:14. Its meaning plays an extraordinary role in our lives as Christians.

The words spoken by the evil spirit are very interesting. And they lead us to three very important conclusions.

 

Jesus

First, the demon says he recognizes Jesus.

Satan and his demons were once angels and had direct access to God. (Revelation 12:9) They don’t dispute the fact that Jesus is the Son of God because they know that it is true. They know exactly who Jesus is and what He has done for humanity.

The Apostle Paul

Second, the demon knows about Paul.

Paul was on fire for Jesus! Everywhere he went he was preaching the gospel and winning people to the kingdom of God. The devil and his demons were very aware of this. If we back up a bit and look at Acts 19:11-12 we can see exactly what Paul was doing.

And God was performing extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul, so that handkerchiefs or aprons were even carried from his body to the sick, and diseases left them and the evil spirits went out.

As Paul was traveling through Ephesus God was allowing him to perform miracles and cast out evil spirits because of his faith in the Lord Jesus.

When we think of the city of Ephesus, we usually think of the very inspiring book of Ephesians written by the Apostle Paul. But during Biblical times, Ephesus was known as a place full of false magicians and wizards who would use incantations.

When the people of Ephesus saw the miracles that Paul was able to perform in the name of Jesus, they started talking about it and word caught on to what he was doing. Some men (the exorcists in verse 13) decided that they would do the same thing for their own purposes, probably to make money. But they had a problem, they didn’t know Jesus so they couldn’t perform the same miracles that Paul did. They didn’t understand that it was God and the name of Jesus that had the power, not Paul.

 For more about Satan in the Bible read, How to Resist the Devil.

Christians

Third, the evil spirit asks, “Who are you?”

This is the part I would like for us to focus on because it pertains to us too. These men didn’t have a good answer ready for the evil spirit, but as Christians we do! We know Jesus! That’s who we are!

So, back to the question, “Does the devil know your name?” I’m confident that he knows mine! He loves to come around and torment me with my past mistakes. He likes to put doubt in my mind and tell me that I’m no good. And he likes to distract me from the things God would have me to do.

Growing up I was afraid of Satan. Isn’t that what we’re taught? Satan is the bad guy and we’re supposed to fear him. But over the years I’ve developed a new outlook.

I think Satan should fear me! Like Paul, I’m on fire for Jesus and I hope you are too! My goal in life is to lift the name of Jesus high so that everyone will know Him as their Savior.

That might get me brownie points in heaven, but it puts a target on my back with Satan and his demons. But that’s okay with me because no matter what Satan does to me, I will always belong to Jesus. I know that I am forgiven for the things in my past I’ve done wrong, and I will be with Jesus in heaven someday.

Let’s be clear, Satan is actively seeking to destroy us. (1 Peter 5:8) If he can’t destroy us, then he’ll try to cause us to become ineffective Christians. As long as we don’t tell other people about Jesus or do the good works of the church, Satan will leave us alone. But as soon as we decide that we are going to live for Jesus one hundred percent, you can bet that he will know our name.

Because here’s the thing, there’s another word for the devil we should address… accuser.

Satan the Accuser has many tricks up his sleeve, and he will use every one of them to try to hurt us. He knows exactly which buttons to push. For some of us, it’s doubt, or illness, or reminding us of our past failures and sins. For others, like myself, it’s distraction. No matter which trick he pulls, you can always count on Satan to knock you down and kick you in the teeth when you least expect it. That’s what he does best, and he relishes in seeing Christians suffer.

While the devil is our accuser, Jesus is our advocate. He is on our side and fighting our battles every day. He is greater than any enemy we face. And Satan and his demons are no match for Jesus. He is already victorious over the powers of darkness! And because we are saved, we share in that victory.

As believers, we don’t need to fear the devil or listen to his accusations, because Jesus has already defeated him. There is nothing that Satan can do to us that will ever change the fact that we belong to Jesus, and he knows it.

Christians are called to be outspoken about our faith in Jesus Christ. If we speak up and show up for Jesus, the world will hate us just as they hated Him. And the devil will hate us too.

But really, what does it matter if someone as small and insignificant as Satan hates us? Jesus is the Son of God, our Redeemer, and the Savior of the world.

At this point you may be asking… does the devil know my name?

If you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the answer is yes! But you don’t need to be scared of the devil or his demons. They are easy to control with one simple word, the name of Jesus!

Satan cowers in fear and hides at the name of Jesus, the name above all names. So, when Satan reminds you of your past, remind him of his future. You know, that whole “lake of fire” thing, where the devil, his demons, and everything they’ve done will be burned to a crisp. (Revelation 20:10)

What would I say if I was asked the question, Does the devil know your name today? My answer would simply be this, “I’m the girl that knows Jesus by heart and I’m the girl He died for!” That answer alone is enough to send the devil and all of his demons running scared.

What would your answer be? Let me know in the comments below.

Psalm 32:10 Free Printable Scriptures for Halloween

If you’re looking for some great scriptures for Halloween, you’ve come to the right place!

This verse is about comparing the acts of the wicked with those of someone who trusts in God. A perfect topic to discuss this time of year.

Many sorrows shall be to the wicked;
But he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.

Psalm 32:10 NKJV

Psalm 32:10 speaks to how the wicked will not have God’s help when they are in need and will feel sorrowful because of it.

But the person who trusts in the Lord will have mercy when they find themselves in a similar situation.

When I read this or other scriptures for Halloween, I ask myself,…Which category do I want to be in? The wicked or the one who trusts in God?

For me, the answer is simple, but not always easy to live up to. I want to have mercy and grace, so I choose to follow God and His will.

I know, it’s easier said than done sometimes. But you can never go wrong when you follow God and allow His will to prevail in your life!

The Psalms are full of different comparisons between the wicked and the godly. Each one is a testament to how God protects and provides for His children. I encourage you to look them up and discover new ways to live a godly life and experience God’s love and protection this Halloween and year-round.

Should Christians Celebrate Halloween? – Matthew 5:14-16

Should Christians Celebrate Halloween? Matthew 5:14-16

This time of year, Christian circles are a buzz with one thing…

Should Christians celebrate Halloween?

This question seems to come from the uncertainty of what this holiday actually is, and what it means to those who celebrate it.

For some people, it’s a dark and mysterious day filled with ancient pagan rituals.

For others it’s just a day of harmless fun for the kids, playing dress-up, pumpkin carving, and trick-or-treating for candy.

The church as a whole remains divided on the issue. Some churches choose to celebrate fall or harvest giving the neighborhood children a safe place to spend Halloween. While others don’t celebrate this holiday and choose to ignore it altogether.

Either way, there is a lot of passion on both sides over what is right or wrong in the eyes of God.

Since Halloween is a secular holiday, it’s best to take it with a grain of salt and not lose sight of what really matters.

When we find ourselves at odds as the body of Christ, the wise choice is always to turn to the Bible for guidance and understanding.

Let’s look at some Bible verses that will shine a light on the pressing question… Should Christians Celebrate Halloween?

Halloween and Jesus

 

You are the light of the world. A city on the hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

                                                         Matthew 5:14-16 NKJV

The darkness of the world runs deep. And during this dark season, it seems to surround us even more. But in the darkness, there is a light.

The words of Jesus are very clear in this scripture…Christians are the light of the world!

We are the city on the hill and a shining beacon of hope for an unsaved world.

It’s our job to stand above the fray pointing the way to Jesus. And be a reflection of the living Christ allowing His radiant light to shine in us for all to see.

The light of Jesus cannot be overshadowed or hidden from view. And it should burn so bright in us people can’t help but be amazed by its power.

But if we don’t let the light shine in the first place, how can they see the glory of the risen Savior?

No matter how we as Christians see this holiday, shining the light of Jesus should be our focus. And we should never let our passion about Halloween divide us.

That’s what the devil would like to see us do. And I don’t know about you, but I won’t let him have the satisfaction.

Free Devotional 7 Simple Ways to See God's Hand in Your Life

The Danger of Celebrating Halloween

The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness. Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness. If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, the whole body will be full of light, as when the bright shining of a lamp gives you light.

                                                         Luke 11:34-36 NKJV

 

Speaking of focus… Losing our focus is the real danger of celebrating Halloween.

Bright and shiny objects have a tendency to distract us from our goal of Jesus and shining His light.

When we see them, we don’t see Him, and our body is “full of darkness”.

But when we focus our “eye” on Jesus, then we can truly see what is important and be a “shining lamp” that dispels the darkness and leads to the path of salvation

The world and Christians are opposites in every way, just as darkness and light are also opposites. In sharp contrast to the world’s darkness, we are the bright light that shines for the glory of God.

So, let’s keep Jesus in focus at all times, and not let bright, shiny things distract us from our goal.

Is it a sin to celebrate Halloween?

The Bible doesn’t talk about Halloween the holiday. It didn’t exist then as it does now.

But the Bible does give us guidance on how we should live in an evil world.

There are many verses in the Bible about evil and avoiding it. I think that’s a good idea every day of the year. And a subject we can come back to later.

But let’s talk about sin for a moment.

Sin starts in your heart and then flows out of it. Whatever is already in your heart will come out.

So, instead of asking is celebrating Halloween a sin, let’s ask, how do you see this day? What is in your heart regarding it?

And then follow the instruction in this scripture…

Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.

                                             Proverbs 4:23 NIV

Can Christians celebrate Halloween?

The simple answer is yes, Christians can celebrate Halloween.

But it goes deeper than that.

The way you see this holiday should determine how you think of it and how you guard your heart accordingly.

If you see it as a dark, satanic day, then don’t celebrate such a terrible thing.

If you see it as a day to dress up and have fun, make sure you do it in way that glorifies God and allows the light of Jesus to shine in you.

I don’t celebrate Halloween

Personally, I don’t celebrate Halloween. My family hasn’t for many years. It’s a choice we made based on our beliefs and on the Biblical truth of who Jesus is. We would rather stay away from the darkness of this particular day and focus on happier things.

However, I don’t judge anyone for the choice they make. It’s a personal decision. And I completely understand those with small children celebrating and allowing them to dress up and treat or treat. I’m sure it’s hard to tell your child there won’t be any Halloween candy to munch or super cute jack o lanterns on the porch.

Really, the answer to the question… Should Christians Celebrate Halloween, is a personal one. It’s something you should pray about and ask God for advice on. I guarantee you… He will answer.

Whether you choose to just say no to Halloween altogether, or you’re ready to suit up in your best Halloween costume to celebrate, one thing is certain…

Christians are called to be the light in a dark world.

And we should never let our disagreements over a secular holiday divide our efforts to shine bright!

I pray we will individually and collectively, fix our eyes on Jesus and let our light so shine before men.

I encourage you to seek the radiant light of Christ in your life. And to reflect His light to the rest of the world as the shining beacon of hope that you are.

Happy Halloween! And may God bless you this holiday season!

P.S. My family does buy candy for our church to give out to the neighborhood children. We see it as a great way to reach out to the community and share the truth of the gospel with them.
