You’re probably familiar with the hymn, Nothing But The Blood, written by Robert Lowry in 1876 and first introduced at a camp meeting in Ocean Grove, New Jersey. You’ve probably joined in singing its truth, yet do you understand the significance of what it testifies? “What can wash away my sins? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.”
So many times we can just sing words without letting the meaning of those words and phrases really minister to us. Romans 5:8-9, NASB – “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.” Robert Lowry knew the power of the blood of Jesus translating a sinner to a saint, and also the wholeness it provides for each receiver. Are you growing in this truth?
