Faithful woman

One night in a church service a young woman felt the tug of God at her heart. She responded to God’s call and accepted Jesus as her Lord & Saviour.

The young woman had a very rough past, involving alcohol, drugs  & prostitution.  But the change in her was evident.

Blood Of JesusAs time went on she became a faithful member of the church. She eventually became involved in the ministry teaching young children.

It was not very long until this faithful young woman had caught / eye & heart of the pastor’s son.

The relationship grew & they began to make wedding plans.  This is when the problem began.

You see, about one half of the church did not think that a woman with a past such as hers was suitable for a pastor’s son.

The church began to argue & fight about the matter. So they decided to have a meeting.

As the people made their arguments & tensions increased, the meeting was getting completely out of hand.

The young woman became very upset about all the things being brought up about her past. As she began to cry, the pastor’s son stood to speak.

He could not bear the pain it was causing his wife to be. He began to speak & his statement was this :

“My fiancee’s past is not what is on trial here. What you are questioning is the ability of the Blood of Jesus to wash away sin. “

Blood Of Jesus“Today you have put the Blood of Jesus on trial. So, does it wash always sin or not ? “

The whole church began to weep as they realized that they had been slandering the Blood of Jesus Christ.

Too often, even as Christians, we bring up the past & use it as a weapon against our brothers & sisters. Forgiveness is a very foundational part of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

If the Blood of Jesus does not cleanse the other person completely then it cannot cleanse us completely.

If that is the case, then we are all in a lot of trouble.

What can wash away my sins….?   Nothing but the Blood of Jesus !
