Jesus Blood Covers Our Sins Unconditionally

MISCONCEPTION:

Jesus blood covers our sins unconditionally.


THE TRUTH:

The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all of our sins - past, present and future, but are there any conditions that must be met before the blood applies?  Yes, 1 Peter 1:2 says we must obey Jesus Christ first.

In 1 Peter 2:24 it says, "Jesus Christ bore our sins in His body, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness."  How do you live to righteousness?  Simply practice righteousness (1 John 2:29; 3:7, 10).   How do you practice righteousness?  Engage in good deeds (Titus 3:8; Gal. 6:9; 2 Thess. 3:13). To what degree should you do them?  Zealously (1 Peter 3:13; Matt. 5:20)!  Why zealously?  Because zealously overcoming evil with good, along with daily study of God’s word and prayer, is putting on the full armor of God (Rom. 12:21; Eph. 6:11).  Most people who profess Jesus Christ as their Savior are totally unaware of this.
