In him we have redemption…

In him we have redemption, through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace… Ephesians 1:7

It’s not the strength of our faith, but the object of our faith, JESUS, that makes redemption and forgiveness possible. Not our good works, but his work done for us. Not about me, or you, or any other deeply flawed human for that matter, THANK GOD. It’s all about Jesus!

What can wash away my sin?

Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

What can make me whole again?

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Oh! precious is the flow

That makes me white as snow;

No other fount I know,

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Nothing can my sin erase

Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

Naught of works, ’tis all of grace—

Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

This is all my hope and peace—

Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

This is all my righteousness—

Nothing but the blood of Jesus!

‘Nothing But the Blood of Jesus’ Robert Lowry, 1876
