Over a decade ago my ministry coach Tom Wood met me for a lunch meeting. All I remember from that meeting was the first thing he said; So what is the present value of Jesus' blood?
So I guess we are starting in the deep end, huh!
It is pretty common today in some circles to hear the phrase "Preach the Gospel to yourself everyday." Tom's question is a really helpful way to do that. It reminds me that the obedience and sacrificial death of Jesus have present value - right here and right now. Jesus' perfect death assures those who believe that they have perfect complete forgiveness. Jesus' record of perfect obedience assures his people that they are prefectly accepted by God. (For more on the work of Jesus click here.)
So what is the present value of Jesus' blood for you?
Are you feeling discouraged by your repeated inability to live up to some standards? Jesus.
Are you feeling guilty about the many ways you fail to love people? Jesus.
Are you still struglging with missed opportunities of the past? Jesus.
