Precious Blood: Christ’s Atoning Work
“He was wounded for our transgressions; He was crushed for our iniquities; upon Him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with His stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
At the very heart of our Christian faith is a precious red substance: the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. The sin-atoning death of Christ is remarkable for being at once, most offensive to the world, most treasured by the church, most astonishing to the mind, and most stirring to the soul. The one thing we would least expect to hear about God is that He sent His own Son to die for our sins. Thus it is Christ’s precious blood that puts amazing into grace, wonderful into the Gospel, and marvelous into God’s salvation plan. The cross is a theme that Christians will meditate on forever without exhausting its wonder. And of the cross, God’s redeemed will sing with glorious praise to unending ages.
What are atonement, substantiation, redemption, propitiation, expiation and reconciliation? These themes will refresh the souls and minds of veteran believers and instruct and inspire those coming to grips with the cross for the first time.
