Sealed With Blood
Topic: New Testament Scripture: Hebrews 9:16–9:28
We often associate blood with death, but it is also a symbol of life. We do not live without blood. That's why, culturally, blood has often been used to seal a deal - to show that we are serious about keeping what we have promised. The two most famous covenants God has made with His people have been sealed with blood. For the old covenant, it was the blood of animals. For the new covenant, it is the blood of Jesus. The shedding of the blood of God's Son, brings this new deal into effect - guaranteed!
