Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

 “Being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath” (Rom 5:9).

We can be justified by the blood of Christ. This is perhaps one of the most wonderful experiences we receive through His blood. “Justified” means, “made righteous”, made as if we have never sinned. If sin is repented of and confessed with a broken and contrite heart, the blood of the Lamb has the power to erase that sin and justify the one who sinned.

Once a child of God working in an office was given certain mathematical calculations to be complete. He finished the work and handed it over to his boss and went home. On the way home, to his shock, it dawned on him that he had made a major mistake in the calculations. As that document was a very important one – one used in the manufacture of diesel engines, the mistake would have disastrous consequences. But what could be done now? When he reached home, he knelt in the presence of God and repented for his pride, foolishness, self-confidence, etc. He got the assurance that the Lord had forgiven him, and was relieved. However, he was worried about the mistake. Can God go to the desk of the boss and correct his mistake? (Yes, God can do much more than that!) The next day, when he was on the way to the boss’ room, one of his colleagues met him and told him that the boss had called all the staff members and praised him for his efficiency, saying, “The young man who has been newly appointed to our office must be very intelligent. I made a mistake in the calculations. He found out my mistake and corrected it!”

Dear reader, although this is only a crude example, the truth is the same - “justified by His blood.” If you will truly repent for your sins and foolish mistakes, remember, the blood of Jesus has power to forgive you and justify you.
