What does the blood of Jesus mean? It means that God is satisfied. Am I able to approach Almighty God saying, “I know that the blood has satisfied you.”? That is the faith of Christ; when His faith is my faith then I am able. When I do believe this I have a living peace with God. This is attacked on every side, and I must decide: is the blood enough for me? It is enough for God, is it enough for me?
I must make that decision by the word of God which proclaims our relationship with God based upon the blood, and by the Holy Spirit which testifies to our conscience of the work of the blood. And I must make that decision for myself so that I can also make it concerning you. Is the blood enough for me concerning you? When it is enough, when its satisfies me, for myself, for you, for all others, then I am at peace with God, with myself and with you.
In and from that peace I may truly represent God in this world. I speak of sin, and righteousness, and judgment from peace. I bear witness to the presence of God with peace. I am one with my wife in peace, I respond to my boss in peace, I read the newspaper in peace. And every attack against that peace I answer with the blood of Jesus Christ: for me, for you, and always before the Father. Jesus, there is no one like you.
