Please watch the video then read on.
When I first watched this video a few days ago I had several things to say. I prepared so much to write in a blog post, but somehow it just didn’t seem right. So, I scrapped it all and started over. I can’t say much. Mr. Munroe said it all. My favorite line is this.
A substitution of blood, on my behalf, so that I could live again.
That is a powerful statement. Can you imagine what it must feel like to receive such a gift? To be born again?
I don’t know the feeling of physically receiving this life-giving blood, but I do know what it feels like to receive spiritual life-giving blood. Jesus Christ did that for me, and for you. He was that substitution of blood, on our behalf, so that we might live. How amazing is that? Even though we may not go through a bone marrow transplant and receive someone’s blood in our bodies, we can know what its like to experience rebirth. Praise God for the sacrifice…the substitution of blood on my behalf!
