Why Is Blood Necessary For The Forgiveness Of Sins?

In the Christian faith, a person can be forgiven of their sins. Regardless of what has happened in their past, they can be forgiven. But how does that forgiveness take place? It happens as the blood of Jesus covers our sins. Let me explain.
The Bible says that Jesus Christ died on the cross. While Jesus was on the cross He was paying the price for our sin. We could not pay the debt. We couldn’t be good enough or do enough. We had to have help and Jesus gave us that help. When Jesus shed His blood, that blood is able to cover our sin.
Now, someone may ask how this happens? The Bible says, “Without the shedding of blood there is no remission (forgiveness) of sin.” But why is blood necessary?
Leviticus 17:11 says, “..the life of the flesh is in the blood.”
So, because is critical, Jesus shed His blood so our sins can be forgiven. Now, someone may ask, “Ok, but HOW does Jesus blood cover my sins?” This is a spiritual experience.      You can’t see Jesus blood… for that matter, we can’t see our sin. We pray and admit that we are a sinner and we need help. We ask Jesus to come into our heart and use His blood to cover our sins and He does!
Today, if you feel badly about your life… about mistakes… you CAN be forgiven. If you will admit your sin and ask Jesus into your heart, your sins can be forgiven.
In the Christian church, there are lots of songs we have sung and currently sing that talk about the power of the blood. These songs indicate how important the shedding of blood is. There is “power in the blood” because that blood covers our sins.
