Purpose of Blood

Purpose of Blood

8% of our body weight is blood. Blood transports essential elements in the body. Blood transports things to the tissues and the removal of wastes from the tissues. Blood transports oxygen to all the tissues. Blood is actually beneficial when we don’t see it but when we see it flow or burst out of our skin, it makes our stomach sick and our head dizzy. Kind of gross right?

But blood has also done something beautiful just for you.  As Wayne Kerr sings, “Just one drop of blood will save the world… for love, for you My love.” What kind of love is this that requires blood to be shed?

Just one drop of blood will save the world
Every woman, man, boy, and girl
Just one drop of blood will save the world

When the sin of man have come too far
Separation greater than the stars
Just one drop of blood will save the world

For love, oh love
For love, oh love
For you, my love
What kind of love is this?

And now redemption lies in his eyes
Don’t turn away, see the sacrifice
Oh the blood of Jesus runs from here

For love, oh love
For love, oh love
For you, my love
What kind of love is this?

And I wonder why He gave it all away
I wonder why He gave it all away
I wonder why He gave it all away
Gave it all away

For love, oh love
For love, oh love
For you, my love
What kind of love is this?

 

The song is new but the story is old. One thing we know is that what was written in Isaiah 53:7 came to pass when Jesus Christ was arrested and taken to the cross. Through what Christ has done, there is victory and freedom.

When the world comes crashing in on your life and it seems that no one cares for you. Remember the cross and the blood that flowed from it for you.

He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet He did not open His mouth.
Like a lamb led to the slaughter
and like a sheep silent before her shearers,
He did not open His mouth.
He was taken away because of oppression and judgment;
and who considered His fate?
For He was cut off from the land of the living;

-Isaiah 53:7-8
