Just think how much more the blood of Christ will purify our consciences from sinful deeds so that we can worship the living God. For by the power of the eternal Spirit, Christ offered himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins - Hebrews 9:14

Christianity goes above and beyond religion. It is the ultimate divine agenda of God to establish a global community of those who have been and those who would be saved through faith in the redemptive blood of Jesus. It's noteworthy that the redemption, which the blood of goats and bulls could not achieve without dispensing with the yearly sacrifices of these animals was achieved and perfected THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS. The Roman officials, who worked in league with the chief priests of the Jews, orchestrated the crucifixion of Jesus. However, they were oblivious that Jesus' death on the Cross was to prepare the way for the redemption of mankind. Therefore, by shedding His blood, Jesus put paid to the yearly grind of sacrificing bulls and goats as sacrifices to make atonement for sin.

Secondly, while groaning under the strain of crucifixion, Jesus stepped up to the plate as the long awaited Divine Advocate for mankind, to appease the wrath of God against the sins of man. Because Jesus knew that the masterminds of His crucifixion were not privy to the essence of His willingness to die for mankind, He pleaded with the Father for their forgiveness. Therefore, Jesus became the Perfect and Unquestionable Advocate who averts the possibility of miscarriage of justice and unfounded accusation of those who have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb and those who by faith would come to Jesus.

Finally, it bears mentioning that salvation through the name of Jesus wouldn't have been made perfect if Christ hadn't resurrected from the dead. Therefore, BY THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS, salvation through His name was made perfect. So, if Christ hadn't risen, the early Disciples of Christ wouldn't have put on a brave front to give voice to the publicity of Jesus as the Messiah. Because Jesus rose from the grave and reigns on high, the Early Church went all out to spread the word about His death and resurrection. However, if you haven't allowed the import of the Gospel to resonate with you; if you have been adjourning your acceptance of the Lordship of Jesus; and if you have been playing down the consequence of sinful living, know that Jesus is calling out to you, to come out of your sins and to become a son and a king in His Kingdom, so you don't get to sink with the devil and his company in the next world. Jesus has paid it all to perfect your salvation, why not ask Him to save your soul today.
