The second value is that the blood cleanses our conscience.
What does this mean? It means that my guilty conscience came between
me and God whenever I sought to approach Him. It constantly reminded
me of the barrier that stood between myself and Him. As soon as I find
my conscience uneasy, my faith leaks away, and immediately I know
I cannot face God. In order to keep trucking I must know that God keeps
short accounts; that I am made right by the Blood every moment of everyday.
It means that I come to God on the basis of the finished work of the
Lord Jesus. A clear conscience is never based upon my own attainment;
it can only be based on the work of the Lord Jesus in the shedding of His
Blood on the cross.
All of us may feel weak, but looking at our weakness will never make
us strong. But we can say to God, “Lord, I do not know the value of
the Blood of Jesus, but I know the Blood has satisfied You and so the
Blood is enough for me and it is my only plea.”
