Blood

January 18, 2009

Do you believe that you can act righteously? Do you believe that you can clean up, get yourself together, walk the line? Do you believe you can do good deeds? Do you believe that you can please God?

Do you believe that you should abide by the law of Tithing 10% of your money? Do you believe that a good Christian lives by the 10 Commandments?

Do you believe in penance, ritualistic prayers, saints, a certain catechism, use of religious objects, or religious rights to bring about holiness before God?

Do you believe that certain attire, actions, or dietary practices set you apart as a better believer?

Do you believe that church attendance, days of worship, or holy observances are necessary for the Christian life?

Do you believe that certain theological or church requirements mark you a “good Christian”?

 

If you answered YES to any of the above questions then you believe…

Any old blood will do….

    Thanks for what you have written and provoked here.
    Just this afternoon had this conversation with God–about my utter inability to behave in a Holy manner or to “do” holiness or righteousness.
    I consider this a word back from Him.
    Righteousness and Holiness are Imputed. They are gifts of His Holy Blood.
    Lucky for me!
