"The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all our sin!" 1 John 1:7

Christ's blood is a CLEANSING blood.

As the merit of Christ's blood pacifies God, so the virtue of it purifies us. Christ's blood is heaven's bath. It is a laver to wash in. It washes a crimson sinner, milk-white!

The Word of God is a looking-glass to show us our spots,
and the blood of Christ is a fountain to wash them away!

"On that day a fountain will be opened, to cleanse them from all their sins and defilement!"  Zechariah 13:1

But this blood will not wash, if it is mingled with anything. If we mingle our good works with Christ's blood, it will not wash. Let Christ's blood be pure and unmixed, and there is no spot which it cannot wash away! It purged out Noah's drunkenness, and Lot's incest!

"Though your sins are like scarlet,
I will make them as white as snow!
 Though they are red like crimson,
I will make them as white as wool!
Isaiah 1:18

"They are without fault before the throne of God!" Revelation 14:5
