Under the Blood By Brenda Drake

I saw an illustration of the importance of the sacrifice of Jesus in our behalf that made it clear my great need for a Savior.  God the Father hates sin, and the penalty of sin is death.  When Jesus died and rose up from the grave He conquered the threat of death and its eternal promise of separation from our Creator. Jesus paid our sin-debt so we could live forever with them (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).  When our heavenly Father looks at us under the covering of the blood of Jesus He sees Jesus not our sin. Under the blood we are One with God.

Under the Blood

Life under the blood of Christ,
Not only protects it promises new life.
New life has a fresh start;
The seed of rebirth enters the heart.
Just like a new baby born needs extra care;
Nourished with good food, love and prayer;
The loving Father in heaven carefully,
Watches our growth-progress and sees.
That each step takes to the place,
Destined by the One that has shown such grace.
Life under the blood of Christ,
When nourished by the Word that feeds you right.
The Holy Spirit, Comforter of heart, mind and soul,
Leads to safety, and helps to strong and healthy grow.
Multitudes of angels are close at hand,
To assist as the Father so commands.
Life under the blood covering of Christ is blessed,
Assurance, faith, and trust plans and expects for your best.
New strength is supplied in each day’s gift sent.
All that is needed is to praise, pray and sins repent.
Faith flows free in worship under loves flow,
Life new prospers forever when God is in control.

Galatians 2:20
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Romans 3:24-25
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

John 3:3
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
