I Am Built on Blood

Christians are a people who exist because our Christ has spilled His blood as the substitutionary sacrifice for our sins. He died the death we deserved and thus paid the penalty for our sins in full. We are a people bought by blood (1 Corinthians 6:20; 1 Peter 1:18-19).

However, the blood of Christ was not the only blood shed to make us what we are. Kevin Miller explains:

“You and I would not and could not hold faith in Christ today, if many of the early Christians had not marched into the arena or toiled in the mines, unbent and uncompromised… Each time you and I meet a Christian, we are viewing a monument to the unknown early Christian martyrs.

Kevin A. Miller, “Tomb of the Unknown Christians,” Christian History 9, no. 27 (1990): 2.

Thank God for sending His Son to shed His blood for our life and thank Jesus sending His people to shed their blood to bring us the message of His life giving sacrifice.

We are their monument; built on their blood.
