Reader, have you come to the blood of sprinkling? The question is not whether you have come to a knowledge of doctrine, or an observance of ceremonies, or to a certain form of experience, but have you come to the blood of Jesus?

If our answer is yes… then words cannot express the joy that fills us! I don’t know about you, but I know that I cannot be reminded enough to fix my eyes on Christ. To stop whatever I’m doing and remember the Cross and worship my Savior.

Today’s devotion reminded me of a song we sing:

I COME BY THE BLOOD

You are the perfect and righteous God
Whose presence bears no sin
You bid me come to Your holy place
How can I enter in, when Your presence bears no sin
Through Him who poured out His life for me
The atoning Lamb of God
Through Him and His work alone
I boldly come

Chorus
I come by the blood, I come by the cross
Where Your mercy flows from hands pierced for me
For I dare not stand on my righteousness
My ev’ry hope rests on what Christ has done
And I come by the blood

You are the high and exalted King
The One the angels fear
So far above me in every way
Lord how can I draw near, to the One the angels fear
Through Him who laid down His life for me
And ascended to Your side
Through Him, through Jesus alone
I boldly come

My simple encouragement today is to take time to worship the Savior! We come to Him, because of Him. We boldly come to His throne in worship and prayer because of His blood shed for us. That is praiseworthy!!
