Blood has frequently been shed in human history, often in religious cause. The trail of human history is the trail of blood. But none of them could redeem, justify, reconcile us with God or, even cleanse and purifies us from any iniquity because it was defeated- impure blood. Divine redemption required that the blood which could do all these meet the biblical standard- that it should be of a certain nature, and it is only the blood of Jesus Christ that met the standard. All other human blood has been tainted by the corruption of sin resulting from Adam’s fall (Rm.5: 12) but the blood of Christ contained none of the sinful corruption which permeated all other humanity. The blood of Christ was sacred, sacrificial, and sinless, without spot or blemish (1Peter1: 18).
In this message, Fr. Mbaka reveals that it is only the priceless, imperishable and sinless blood of Jesus that could pay the ransom not only for your soul but all that concerns you, and urges the people of God to always think, talk and act as one who is important to God, indispensable, valuable and precious on God’s sight, because they worth the precious blood of Jesus Christ and are therefore His most priceless gem.
Mighty and ever living God, we thank you for the gift of the blood of Jesus Christ. O lord, we cannot appreciate enough this unquantifiable and priceless gift of this miracle working blood. O lord, as I administer the efficacy, potency and legitimacy of this blood on your people today, may the power in the word of your servant come true into perfect manifestation and holistic realization of the benefits of this blood. As I pray upon your people this day and echo upon them, the glory, supremacy and the over- whelming power inherent in the blood of your son Jesus Christ, let there be revival in their lives: let there be organ rejuvenation: let the weak be made strong: the sinners be cleansed: the impossible be made possible: Let the dying begin to live: let those who are afraid begin to be courageous: let those who are failing be made successful: and Let those who are being afflicted by the evil spirits be delivered by this precious and priceless blood of Jesus Christ, in Jesus Name, Amen.
When God clothed Adam and Eve after they had sinned in Gen. 3, it was in the skin of an animal whose blood had been shed. When Abel offered an acceptable sacrifice to God in Gen.4, it was the sacrifice of a lamb whose blood had been shed. When Isaac was about to die on mount Moriah in Gen. 22, it was the blood of a substitute ram that saved his life. And when the death angel passed over Egypt in Exodus 11, it was the sprinkled blood over the doorpost that saved the Israelites. Regardless of whether it was the consecration of a priest, the birth of a son, doing penance due to sins, or the highest religious festival, the way to fellowship with God in the Old Testament, was through the shedding of blood.
In the New Testament, the same principle applies. What the Old Testament portrays through picture, the New Testament presents in person. Throughout the scripture, you will find one dominant theme: salvation by the blood and blood alone. All hope of salvation and forgiveness of sins are based upon the shed blood of Christ in His death on the cross. Hebrews 99: 22, says, ‘’without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin’’.
You were ransomed by the priceless and imperishable blood of Jesus Christ.
Therefore, do you truly have inestimable value? Why such a question, you may ask? For most of us, the salvation of our souls would have no price. And yet, this is what the bible says in I peter 1: 18-19 which forms the paradigms of this message, ‘’for you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And the ransom He paid was not mere gold or silver. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God’’. How much could you have paid for this ransom by the blood of Jesus? One million dollars: ten million: or hundred million? You cannot buy this type of blood in the market unlike the blood of other animals. All the gold in the world would not have been enough to ransom or purchase your soul. Only the priceless, sinless blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of the son of God, could accomplish it. You see, you were imprisoned with sin, but Jesus came and paid the prize in His own perfect blood that sets you free, and you are now a new creation. The condemnation was taken away. Thank God for the saving blood of Jesus Christ.
The blood was shed so that you might have a relationship with God. That relationship is only made possible because Jesus was willing to die for you on the cross. It was not the price of silver and gold that saved you, even though those precious metals are costly and worth much to the world. Most of us don’t have silver and gold. Even if you have them, they cannot save anyone. If you owned the whole of the earth, this would not save you from the curse of sin. Ephesians 1: 7 says,’’ in Him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace ‘’.
Jesus is the sinless Lamb of God, and all- sufficient sacrifice of sins who alone could save us from hellfire. His blood was shed once on the cross in a never- to- be repeated act for man’s redemption. He is the only Savior and our only hope beyond the grave.
The fact that He is the only hope of mankind manifest when Jesus prayed to the Father in Gethsemane for Him to remove the cup from Him. In spite of His prayers, it still was not removed, because there was no other solution. Jesus had to go to the cross, and shed his blood there to gain the victory for us, not for himself, because He already had victory over the devil. Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. He is our Passover lamb.
You are a priceless gem, precious and important to God
The perfect one became sin. He carried your iniquity, and the weight of all your sorrows. Your value cannot be evaluated in earthly terms. The only currency that could ransom such a thing as your life is the blood of God, Jesus himself. Therefore, you are so precious. You are a priceless gem and a delightful treasure. Jesus loves you so much. In Luke 15:17, Jesus said ,’’I say to you that likewise, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety nine just persons, who need no repentance’’.
As the scripture above reveals of heaven’s joy over a single soul that receives salvation. This shows why you know how important every person on the face of the earth is to the lord. John3: 16 says, ‘’for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life’’. He loved the world of humans and that includes you.
Now, you need to know this: you are important to God, precious and treasured. He loves you as an individual. He knows you by name and everything that concerns you. He paid the heaviest of prices- the blood of His son Jesus Christ not only for your salvation, but for everything that concerns you. You should know that it was not with perishable things such as silver and gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. This means you are worth the precious blood of Jesus Christ and His most priceless gem.
When you walk every day with the consciousness that you are important to God, it will inspire boldness and confidence in your spirit. You will think like a victor, walk with your head high and dominate your world as a king. You will know that nothing is impossible to you, because you are a joint- hair with Christ. See yourself this way: always think, talk and act as one who is important to God, indispensable, valuable and precious on God’s sight, because you are priceless.
