The Redeeming Voice of Jesus’ Blood
And to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. For if they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape if we reject him who warns from heaven.
─ Hebrews 12:24-25 ESV
Cain told God he didn’t know where his brother Abel was, when in fact, Cain had killed him. God replied, “The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground” (Genesis 4:10). Our blood has a voice and it speaks.
Hebrews 12:24 says that Jesus’ blood speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. The blood of Jesus speaks with redemptive power. The voice of Jesus’ blood is filled with words of mercy and forgiveness. His sinless life was poured out to cover the sins of the whole world.
Jesus’ blood speaks for us. We deserved death. We deserved to be held accountable for our past. But the redeeming voice of Jesus’ blood discounts what we deserved and provided mercy and forgiveness. We live and walk in the unmerited, undeserved blessings of God. His blood purchased our salvation and offered us forgiveness.
When your past puts you on trial or the enemy of your soul accuses you, as a child of God, you are free from the past. You no longer deserve death for your sins. Remind yourself of what the redeeming blood of Jesus is saying about you.
