Nothing but the Blood – A Better Word!

“…you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.”   Hebrews 12:22-24

A better word than the blood of Abel: Abel’s blood cried out from the ground to the Lord for justice and vengeance. The blood Jesus speaks for his people’s forgiveness, justification, healing, reconciliation, wholeness, holiness, cleansing, liberation, redemption, access and acceptance with God.

I love this song by Matt Redman.

Peter serves as a pastor-teacher, at home and abroad, resourcing gospel-centred communities.
