Acts 20 – The Blood of God

Acts 20 – The Blood of God

On the night Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper, He took the cup and said, “Drink from it, all of you. For this is My blood of the New Covenant, which is shed for you for the remission of sins.” Notice that the pronoun “My” is capitalized, and properly so. Why? Because Jesus is God, and as we will see in our text today in Acts, the blood that was shed on the cross was the very blood of God. So it’s only the blood of Christ that can save any of us. We either choose to be covered by His blood and we are saved to be sanctified, or we are not covered, and we remain sinners doomed to die in our sin. It’s as simple as that. Why is the Gospel so exclusive and absolute? Because the power is in the blood:  the power to save us and the power to sanctify us. Thus the Bible states clearly testifies “nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no name under heaven (but the name of Jesus Christ) given among men by which we can we can be saved.”

May Jesus be magnified in our study today in Acts,
