Oh, holy and perfect Father, we come to You in the presence of thousands of angels joyfully singing the praises of your glory.
We come as the church of the firstborn—Son of God, Son of Man—grateful You wrote our names in heaven.
We come because of a new covenant written in Jesus’ blood—the Blood that speaks better things.
It speaks better than the guilt, judgment and condemnation Abel’s blood cried. A blood commemorating the acts of sinful flesh: wicked words and hateful hands.
The Blood speaks freedom, forgiveness, blessing, hope, peace, acceptance, and victory.
So, we come out from the lying labels and wicked wounds placed on us to bear Jesus’ name and righteousness, instead.
We come rehearsing the better narrative The Blood speaks. Because while we play a part in walking out our freedom, there are aspects where “nothing but The Blood” will do.
We’re grateful for The Blood that will never lose its power.
So speak Blood, when past foes or present fears try naming us anything other than chosen and redeemed. Speak until your words pulse between our temples and, believing, we come into ALL our Father has for us!
It’s in the name of Jesus, the One whose Blood paid it all, we pray. Amen.
