Nothing But the Blood
ROLE OF THE BIBLE IN RESTORATION
NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD!
(*Source: Nothing But The Blood music video with lyrics. Jesus Culture)
Men need the Blood of Jesus to wash them clean!
1. Ephesians 1:7 Through the blood of Jesus, I have been REDEEMED OUT OF THE HAND OF THE DEVIL!
2. 1 John 1:7 While I walk in the light of Jesus, the blood of Jesus CLEANSES ME NOW AND IN THE FUTURE OF ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS!
3. Romans 5:9 Through the blood of Jesus, I have been JUSTIFIED, ACQUITTED, MADE NOT GUILTY, RECKONED WITH OR ACCOUNTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS VS SIN!
4. Hebrews 13:12 Through the blood of Jesus, I am SANCTIFIED OR SET APART FOR GOD’S PURPOSES WHICH MAKES ME HOLY IN GOD’S SIGHT!
5. Hebrews 9:11-15 The blood of Jesus PURGES MY CONSCIENCE FROM ALL DEAD WORKS!
6.Hebrews 10:19-22 The blood of Jesus GIVES ME ACCESS INTO THE PRESENCE OF GOD!
7. Colossians 1:20 The blood of Jesus GIVES ME PEACE (PEACE THAT PASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING!)
As you read these seven passages, image what the sacrifice of Jesus Christ upon the Cross now means for him? Reflect for a moment and pray. Ask the Father to reveal to your participant the depth of the meaning of HIS SON’S blood that was shed for him so that you can share this critical element even more meaningfully.
Questions for considerations:
1. What is the primary effect of the blood of Jesus that you think will appeal to a man?
2. A man upon learning the seven key “affects” of the Blood of Jesus should be asked which does he want appropriated to his life?
3. Ask him what changes in his life need to be made to allow the blood of Jesus to operate fully?
