Recognizing the Blood of Jesus
How do you recognize the blood of Jesus Christ?
We recognize the blood of Jesus Christ when we start recognizing God for the little things he does every day; when we start thanking him for the little things that happen in our lives everyday.
Let me give you an example from my own life.
My riding lawn mower broke down one time. The pulley was smashed up. So I took a screwdriver and opened up the pulley. Two neighbor boys were visiting me that day. I asked them to turn the blade manually. Instead they decided to turn the blade by turning on the key. I had my hand up underneath the mower at this point. I felt the draft of the lawn mower blade pass across my finger nails. My fingers were missed by a hair. Now I could have gotten angry with those boys. But instead I thanked the Lord for protection and laid aside the anger.
The Lord protected me that day the same way he has protected me and my family for the last 30 years. In the past though I did not recognize the Blood of Jesus and my anger got the best of me. It is so much easier now to lay aside these things by recognizing the blood of Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. (NKJV)
Psalm 91:2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust." (NKJV)
