The Blood

Today’s post is simply a copy of a Facebook post I shared on my personal page earlier this year.  Check it out and share your thoughts.  What does God’s sacrifice mean to you?

My husband and I usually make it a point to find a church to attend even on family vacation or our anniversary celebrations alone. Today I have been thinking about our visit to a church during our most recent wedding anniversary.

One of the local politicians addressed the congregation and made a statement that stuck with me, especially on today. He was addressing the black community at the time, and said “There is too much blood on the ground for you to NOT vote”, referring to leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr. and others who have loss their lives fighting for our rights. This statement is powerful, at least to me.

However, this is what I have been mulling over today, on Father’s Day, the fact that “There is too much blood on the ground for you and I to NOT serve God”. Our heavenly Father loved us so much He was willing to wrap himself in flesh to die in our place on the cross!! How could we not serve Him???

The blood, the blood, the blood. Nothing but the blood of Jesus!!!
