“...whom God sent forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness...” – Romans 3 v 25
There is power in the blood of Jesus. When applied to our sinful selves, such abolishes the stain of sin, the torment of disease, the affliction of bondage. The key to its impacting our lives however, is its application. How do we apply it? Quite simply, we believe! There is an intrinsic link between the blood and our faith. The former is all encompassing, all powerful and ever-enduring. However, its influence is activated by our faith. God, ever the gentleman, designed it so. To the one who believes, the blood is able to wash, heal and deliver. To the one who refuses to believe, the blood stands afar off, waiting for an invitation. In the verse quoted above, the blood and our faith are placed side-by-side, divinely ordained partners in the work of salvation and deliverance. “By His blood, through faith” we read. Today, choose to believe. Whatever you are struggling against or suffering through, choose to activate the power of His blood.
Mulidzi from BURGERSFORT experienced first-hand the wonders found within the application of the blood of Jesus. May her testimony below inspire you to believe as she did!
Yours in His service,
SAVED AND FILLED
Hearing the sounds of voices singing praises to Jesus, 26-year-old Mulidzi Mulalo was intrigued. Following the music, she made her way to the In His Name crusade grounds in BURGERSFORT, Limpopo. Could this be the opportunity she had been waiting for? “I heard the sound of the music and decided to come. I was so hungry for God and I wanted to make Jesus the Lord of my life,” she explained. That night, which happened to be Thursday, Mulidzi gave her life to Christ! However, this precious gift of salvation was not the only gift the Lord had in store for her.
Returning on the Saturday evening, Mulidzi was filled with the Holy Spirit. “When the evangelist was praying for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, I felt my whole body vibrating. I experienced the power of God for the first time in my life. I feel so free, completely delivered. I will take this fire, and use it to do whatever God wants me to do!” Overjoyed, Mulidzi could not contain her excitement. “I am going to find a church so I can fellowship and continue to serve God,” she said. Yes, indeed, this is our Jesus – always eager to save and fill to overflowing those who thirst after Him!
