Nothing But The Blood

Groom, TexasImage via Wikipedia
May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ...
Galatians 6:14

I was glad to be reminded this week of this amazing song, so we will sing it at church this morning.

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
I have also been sad to see on the web this week, Christians attacking other Christians because of their lifestyles and the way they interpret the Bible. Not only doctrinal disagreements but brothers accusing brothers of being 'the instrument of the devil'. I hope and pray I always remember that it's ALL about the cross. We are ALL in need of it's power and love. Not one of us can stand above anyone else. We ALL come in rags. We are ALL beggars looking for the mercy of God. And He is more than willing to give it to ALL who ask, not just the ones who have the Scriptures and their lives sorted.

Good reminder Mike! I agree that it is sad when we shift the debate from theology to personal attacks.
