Life – It’s in The Blood

“For the life of the flesh is in the blood … for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.”  ~Leviticus 17:11

“In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;”  ~Ephesians 1:7

Diagnosed with a rare autoimmune neurological disorder in 1994, a prognosis for my condition was “Sudden Death.”   I was given an immunodulating therapy, IVIg, considered experimental during that time for my diagnosis.  IVIg is an  intravenous infusion of pooled plasma from thousands of healthy blood donors.

The plasma goes through an extensive process to remove disease, chemical treatment, and mixing.  It is at a high financial cost to the patient to receive this therapy.  Unfortunately, there are possible adverse risks, benefit is not a guarantee, and if efficacious; it is temporary, not a cure.

Eighteen years and hundreds of infusions later, my shaky quality of life is in the blood.

I was born a sinner, condemned to eternal death in hell.  Because of God’s great love for me, for everyone, He provided a cure, His son, my savior Jesus Christ.  Jesus was the only pure untainted donor, spilling His life’s blood on Calvary’s cross.  Debt paid in full.  The cure for my lost soul was a one-time confession of a repentant heart on bended knee.  Forgiven.  Atonement for my soul, forever.

Eternal life is in the blood, Jesus Christ’s blood.

“Dear Heavenly Father, there are no words to express my love for the precious gift of salvation, for your endless love, for the promise of spending eternity with you.  Thank you for forgiving my sins and personally loving me.  I love you.” Amen
