We hear much in these days about blood banks. It is the name applied to a storehouse for blood taken from healthy individuals for future use on injured or sick persons. By adding certain preservatives to the blood taken from healthy individuals, that blood can be kept for future use in sterile containers. This preservative does not affect the potency of the blood, so that it can be used at some future date. Persons are asked to come to the hospital or laboratory to donate this blood. There this blood is taken, treated and filed away. In this way there is always an ample supply of blood for transfusion in any emergency. How wonderful the findings of science. Today you can give your blood to save the life of some stranger a thousand miles away, a month from now.
This is not one-millionth as wonderful as what God did nineteen centuries ago. Then there was one man who gave all His sinless blood on the Cross of Calvary. There a blood bank was opened and into that bank went the blood fo the Lord Jesus. It suits every type, avails for everyone and is free to all who will submit to its transfusion by the Holy Spirit. All you need do is apply for it by faith. We must add chemicals to the blood in our blood banks to preserve it, and then it eventually deteriorates just the same, but no preservatives need be added to His precious blood, for it was incorruptible blood and sinless. Not one drop of that blood was lost or wasted. It is incorruptible.
“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” (1 Peter 1:18-19).
“Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood” (Revelation 1:5).
Hallelujah for the blood! Oh, sinner, won’t you appropriate that precious blood now! There is nothing else which can wash you clean from the guilt and the power of sin. Receive it today and be saved.
Sharing Policy: Much of our material is available for free, such as the hundreds of articles at the Way of Life web site. Other items we sell to help fund our expensive literature and foreign church planting ministries. Way of Life's content falls into two categories: sharable and non-sharable. Things that we encourage you to share include the audio sermons, O Timothy magazine, FBIS articles, and the free eVideos and free eBooks. You are welcome to make copies of these at your own expense and share them with friends and family, but they cannot be posted to web sites. You are also welcome to use excerpts from the articles in your writings, in sermons, in church bulletins, etc. All we ask is that you give proper credit. Things we do not want copied and distributed freely are items like the Fundamental Baptist Digital Library, print editions of our books, electronic editions of the books that we sell, the videos that we sell, etc. The items have taken years to produce at enormous expense in time and money, and we use the income from sales to help fund the ministry. We trust that your Christian honesty will preserve the integrity of this policy. "For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward" (1 Timothy 5:18).
