What Can Take Away Our Sins?
What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. Oh! Precious is the flow that makes me white as snow; No other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus. For my pardon, this I see, Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing this my plea, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Nothing can for sin atone, Nothing but the blood of Jesus; Naught of good that I have done, Nothing but the blood of Jesus. This is all my hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus; This is all my righteousness, Nothing but the blood of Jesus. Now by this I’ll overcome—Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
Now by this I’ll reach my home—Nothing but the blood of Jesus. Glory! Glory! This I sing—nothing but the blood of Jesus, All my praise for this I bring—
nothing but the blood of Jesus. To be a follower of Jesus the Christ makes me so proud and secure. I will be the first to tell anybody that I was saved by that precious blood of Jesus. I was lost and undone without God or His Son and God saved my soul. It was by The Blood that was shed on the old rugged cross that made the difference in my life. I said all that to say this, I recently read a article in a local news paper in which a man wrote this; “Any person that teaches they has the exclusive path to God and all non believers will suffer eternal damnation is wrong.” Any person that would make such a statement as that is a person who does not read and rightly divide the word of God. Like so many other people he is lost and knows not God. Before I was saved I always tried to be good. I did what was right. I kept the Ten Commandments to the best of my ability, I went to church, and I did all the ordinance of the church but all this did not save me. My name was on the church books but it was not in the book that my Lord kept. I was like thousands of other people who thought they were right but like them I was not. There are other people who believe that their denomination will save them. Some believe their good works will save them, some believe that keeping the ordinances of the church will save them. But the sad fact is you can be baptized in water all you want, but that will not save you. It is a good testimony but it will not save you. Taking communion will not save you. Church ordinances will not save you. Praying to a dead person such as Mary, the mother of Jesus, or a dead saint will not save you because they were in need of a savior too. The fact is they are dead. There is only one mediator between God and man and that mediator is Christ Jesus. When I get to heaven I want to see Jesus and then I want to see these other people who were obedient to our God. But praying to these people is wrong and they cannot save you. Jesus said that no man comes to the father but by him. How much more plainer can it get? Allah cannot save you. Buddha cannot save you. Mother Nature cannot save you or any other religion. It is what Jesus did on the cross. What can take your sins nothing but the blood of Jesus. When a person searches the scriptures they will soon say I was lost and now I’m found, I was blind but now I see.
