7 Benefits of the Blood of Jesus

One day my friend John told me his incredible story about the power in the blood of Jesus

John had been struggling for years with guilt and shame over mistakes he had made in his past. He often felt unworthy of God’s love and forgiveness.

But one day, while reading his Bible, John came across Hebrews 9:22 (NIV):

“In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” 


He was struck by the realization that Jesus had shed his blood on the cross to pay the price for our sins and shortcomings.

John decided to claim the power of Christ’s blood over his life. When feelings of condemnation would rise, he would declare:

“I am forgiven and made clean by the blood of Jesus!”

A tremendous weight lifted off his shoulders. For the first time, John felt free and able to move forward into the destiny God had for him.

I was so inspired by the transformation I saw in my friend. The blood of Jesus completely changed John’s life and identity.

That’s when I began to study and uncover the incredible power, protection, and benefits that Jesus’ sacrifice makes available to all of us who put our faith in Him.

What I discovered changed my walk with God in tremendous ways. I had heard about the blood of Jesus my whole life, but I didn’t fully grasp just how much His blood accomplishes for us.

It washes away sin, brings emotional and physical healing, overcomes the work of the enemy, empowers us to walk in holiness, and so much more!

Over the years, I’ve seen the power of Christ’s blood manifest in miraculous ways for people in need of redemption, cleansing, freedom, and more.

That’s why I’m so excited to share more with you in this article about the benefits that the blood of Jesus makes available to all believers.
