The bedrock of the Christian life is the death and resurrection of Christ. Without Christ, there would have been no hope and future for humanity as a whole. Our Lord and Savior willingly gave Himself for us without self-preservation. Therefore, He’s expecting us to give ourselves to Him in like manner as well.
Throughout the Word of God, holiness is a standard of living that’s quite common. Besides, we’re under an obligation by God to be holy according to (1 Peter 1:16). Holiness is so significant to the extent that it is the very factor that will determine whether we’ll be able to see the Lord or not (Hebrews 12:14). The good news is that holiness is one of the greatest things that Christ’s death has made it possible for us to walk in (Hebrews 13:12). Obviously, we should be mindful that holiness is completely independent from our own worthiness. It’s based entirely on what Jesus Christ has accomplished on behalf of humanity by His shedding blood along with what He wants to do through us. So, let’s try to examine this scripture verse below.
“Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.” (Acts 20:28).
There are many Christian hymns that are about the precious blood of Jesus. As a follow of Christ, you may have already heard many of them, such as the classics like ‘What can wash my sins away, Nothing but the blood of Jesus’, ‘Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb’, ‘Would you be free from the burden of sin?’, ‘There is power in the blood’. In reality, without the blood of Jesus there is no salvation.
