Covenant of Grace

“It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God.” 1 Peter 1:19 (NLT)

As the world turns, time progresses, and technology gets more advanced and savvy. Many churches have gone from pianos, organs and hymnals to light shows, bands and giant screens. With new generations and up-to-date technology it’s out with the old and in with the new. In some churches, the great old hymns of the faith are being traded in for new contemporary Christian music. However, some oldies are goodies! Remember the power hymn by hymnist Lewis Edgar Jones “there is power, power, wonder working power in the precious blood of the Lamb?” The lyrics to this hymn are powerful and Biblically accurate to the shed blood and finished work of Jesus on the cross (John 19:30).

Even God saw a need to usher out the old…the old covenant law of Moses and usher in the new…the new covenant of grace (Rom.6:14). No more shed blood of animals because the old way was not working. God did something new, and He did it once and for all. He sent His son, Jesus! And from resurrection day forward, Jesus’ precious blood has been washing us whiter than snow ever since.

As the hymn says, because of the spotless Lamb His precious blood has freed us from the burden of sin (1 John 2:12). God doesn’t look at our sin, He looks at His Son’s shed blood that covers our sin and says, “we’re forgiven” (Acts 13:38). We are free from ourselves and have been given the gift of righteousness by God through Christ Jesus (Rom.5:17). We have won over evil and Jesus’ victory is ours (1 Cor.15:57).

“Father, we praise and worship Jesus for the gift of salvation from sin, eternal life, healing, protection, provision and peace… because our sins were nailed to the cross, we are covered by the precious blood of the Lamb.”

For His Glory
