Covered By His Blood

by Kathleen Whitten


“My mouth will tell of Your righteousness, of Your salvation all day long,
though I know not its measure.” (Psalm 71:15

No matter how spiritually mature, every Christian stumbles and sins. There are no degrees of sin. Gossip is sin. Having a critical spirit is sin. Substance abuse is sin. Pride and impatience is sin. Selfishness is sin. Even “not doing good to someone when it is within your power to do so” is sin. (Proverbs 3:27)

Just as in the Old Testament times, sin cries out for sacrifice. Blood sacrifice. For believers, Jesus is the sacrifice for all of our sins for all time. And because Christ’s blood covers our sins, God sees us as righteous-made right with God! (2Corinthians 5:21)

Yet as we increase in our love for God, our sins, even the seemingly small ones, become progressively more painful to our hearts. With an increased sensitivity to sin, many times even after asking for forgiveness in Jesus’ name we still feel pained and bloodied. Disappointed and ashamed, it is tempting to believe God cannot use us for a while.

But the Holy Spirit delights in freeing us to see as God sees! God is our Confidence! God is our Hope! And Jesus is our Redeemer!

The Holy Spirit gave me this word:

The enemy attacks in the same areas.
I know how to stand
But this time
I stumble and fall.

I have sinned.
I have fallen.
I ask for forgiveness but
I am hurt.

I see myself.
I am a mess.
I have fallen
and I am covered in blood.

Jesus tells me to get up,
Dust myself off,
And walk.
He tells me that
I have prayers to pray
I have places to go.
I have things to do
In His Name.

“But Jesus,” I cry,
“I have stumbled.
I have fallen.
And I am ashamed.
How can I represent You?
Look at me
Fallen and covered in blood.”

Jesus says again,
“Get up. Stand up and walk.
Do not be ashamed.
For the blood that covers you
Is not your own.
It is mine.”
