Hebrews 12:24 “You have come to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant between God and humanity, and to His sprinkled blood, which speaks a greater word than the blood of Abel crying out from the earth.”
Jesus is the central figure of the agreement God made between Himself and man; and the Blood He shed is what sealed the deal. Covenants are blood pacts made between 2 parties. It showed them this was not to be taken lightly.
In the spiritual realm, blood is very significant because blood that was spilled “spoke” a message. It says that “the blood of Abel cried out from the earth”. Abel was the second son of Adam and Eve, and because of jealousy, his brother Cain killed him. His blood cried out to God for vengeance. It also says that the Blood of Jesus spoke a greater word. It spoke better things. His Blood cried out for our mercy, so that we don’t get the punishment we deserve, which is death. His Blood declared that the wrath of God was satisfied and we no longer have to suffer His anger, rejection and condemnation. His Blood announced that the curse of sin over our lives was finally broken and we can now live free! His Blood made the way for us to be reconciled back to God so that now we can be part of His family and enjoy the benefits of calling Him “Abba” or “Daddy”.
“Thank You Jesus for shedding Your Blood on my behalf so that I can have all the privileges of being in Your family. I no longer have to live in fear because I have a Daddy Who watches out for me. The curse of sin has been broken and I can live free! All because of Your blood that continues to speak in my behalf, in Jesus’ Name, amen!”
