Shutting the blood

SHEDDING OUR BLOOD FOR HEALTH PURPOSES “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:10-12 About six weeks ago I found myself feeling a great deal better out on the golf course. For the first time in years I found myself not getting tired after spending almost five hours on the course. I was very thankful to the Lord and He shared with me how excited He was when Jesus laid down His life and shed His blood for mankind. For the first time in years I went to a blood donor facility and gave a pint of blood. The Lord shared with me that He was pleased in my giving my blood for mankind like He was with Jesus and brought Him forth in newness of life. “Homer, I am very pleased to give you newness of life like I did Jesus when He offered all of His blood for mankind.” Thus saith the Lord. I have been mediating at great deal of how much Christ was willing to be crucified for all mankind. He gave all of His blood on the cross. In Ephesians 2 we are told in verse 13 that we have been brought near by the blood of Christ. Isn’t it amazing that we can go and offer our blood for all mankind and believe that our blood will bring forth newness of life in the person that receives our blood. Peter tells us that our inheritance that is incorruptible and undefiled and does not fade away, reserved in heaven for us. Glory! Peter tells us also that we need to humble ourselves and after we have suffered a little bit in the same suffering of Christ we may expect to be established and strengthened like our Savior was on the third day after His shedding his blood. Let me encourage you to go and share your blood for mankind and to acknowledge His love for you here on the earth. Blessings dear one. Homer Owen
