The Sweetness of His Son’s Blood

For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people – Hebrews 9:19

We are told that (Moses) sprinkled (the blood) upon the book. Oh, how delightful this Bible looks to me when I see the blood of Christ sprinkled upon it! Every leaf would have flashed with Sinai’s lightnings, and every verse would have rolled with the thunders of Horeb, if it had not been for Calvary’s cross; but now, as you look, you see on every page your Saviour’s precious blood. He loved you, and gave Himself for you, and now you who are sprinkled with that blood, and have by faith rested in Him, can take that precious Book, and find it to be green pastures and still waters to your souls.

Whenever you cannot pray as you would, remember that Jesus Christ’s blood has gone before you, and is pleading for you before the eternal throne; like the good Methodist, who, when a brother could not pray, cried out, “Plead the blood, brother!” …There you see that this sin of yours has been already atoned for. Before you committed it, Jesus carried it. Long before it fell from your heart the weight of it had pressed upon the Redeemer’s heart, and He put it away in that tremendous day when He took all the load of His people’s guilt, and hurled it into the sepulchre, to be buried there for ever.

I like to come up to God’s house, and say, “Well, I shall worship God today in the power and through the merit of the precious blood; my praises will be poor, feeble things, but then the sweet perfume will go up out of the golden censer, and my praises will be accepted through Jesus Christ, my preaching, oh! how full of faults; how covered over with sins! but then the blood is on it, and because of that, God will not see sin in my ministry, but will accept it because of the sweetness of His Son’s blood.” ~ C.H. Spurgeon
