This week, my husband shed light on the similarities between our actions today, and the actions of Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden.
Even thousands of years later, we still try to deal with the things in our shed in the same ways that Adam and Eve did back then.
We cover up our sin, hide from God, and blame others.
But none of those things can atone for our sins.
That is why “The Shed” is so critical, because this week, Chris talked about the shed blood of Jesus.
• Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. (Hebrews 9:22 ESV)
Only then are we completely covered.
• I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. (Isaiah 61:10 NKJV)
When Jesus shed His blood for us, there were four offerings extended to us, as sinners:
1. The blood of Jesus offers forgiveness for sin.
• For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.’ (Leviticus 17:11 NKJV)
2. The blood offers protection.
3. The blood offers a connection with God.
• Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, (Hebrews 10:19, 20 NKJV)
4. The blood offers healing.
• But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5 NKJV)
