Daily Manna - Justified by His Blood
Romans 5:8-9 But God
commends His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died
9 Much more then,
being now justified by His blood, we
shall be saved from wrath through Him.
Being Christians we believe
that by Jesus’ shed blood on the cross we were set free from our sins. However,
it is one thing to have a mental assent to this truth; it is quite another
thing to know it by revelation. Isaiah said that our sins were laid upon Him,
and He became guilty in our behalf. Jesus Christ our Savior became our guilt
offering. Surely He hath borne our
griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of
God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised
for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His
stripes we are healed.
