National Blood Donor Month

By Kingsley Baehr

The American Red Cross has designatedJanuary as Blood Donor Month. If you are free of disease, you can be a blood donor for someone who needs blood for a physical ailment.

JESUSis the greatest blood donor who has ever existed!

JESUS was completely free of the disease of sin sickness(1 Peter 2:22 a, 1 John 3:5 b), so His blood is totally effective in curing that dreadful and deadly disease which has infected the whole human race(Romans 3:23 a, Romans 6:23 a), because He donated His blood, free of charge, on the cross at Calvary(Philippians 2:8). Some of us give blood because we were asked by a friend.

JESUSdonated His blood for us when we were still sinners(Galatians 1:4 a).Some of us know that a family member or a friend might need blood some day.

JESUSfrom the beginning of creation, knew that we would need Him to donate His blood to cure us of our sins(Revelation 13:8).

Since JESUSis GOD,His donated blood can completely cure sin sickness by providing forgiveness to anyone and everyone who wants it(Ephesians 1:7 a). So, the question is “Do you want it? Do you want Jesus’ blood donation to be applied to your sin sickness? If you do, here is what will happen:

You will be redeemed [cured of your sin sickness] …with the precious blood of Christ…(1 Peter 1:18-19)

He will be your Physician, your Medicine, your Medicaid, your Rehabilitation Center your Spiritual Security, and your Guarantor of Eternal Life!

What will you do with Jesus? Neutral you cannot be.Someday your heart will be asking, “What will He do with me?”
