But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel (Hebrews 11:24-25).
The shed blood of Jesus is no longer a topic of sermons like it used to be. But it is our secret weapon and it breaks every curse. Unlike Abel’s blood, which called out for justice and revenge, the blood of Jesus gives us freedom and requires nothing in return. When His blood hit the ground on the hill of Golgotha, every curse known to man was shattered. We are set free. All that we have that is good in this life is due to the blood of Jesus. All that God gives us is found in the blood of Jesus. Every blessing is found in Jesus. We can’t earn any of it. It is given to us because of His sacrifice. All we have to do is accept it, believe it, declare it and live in it.
