THE PRAYER OF APPROPRIATION
Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first and of the other who was crucified with Him. But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead they did not break His legs. But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. John 19:32-34
When the spear of the Roman soldier pierced the very heart of Jesus, blood and water flowed out. Blood for the redemption of mankind and water, the life giving drink of the Spirit! On that fateful day the blood of a spotless Lamb flowed out to cleanse our sin and a river of life poured forth and became our source for spiritual drink!
By faith in this glorious work of redemption we partake of the blood of Christ to cleanse us of all unrighteousness and repent, thereby saving our souls from eternal damnation. We then drink of the water of life that refreshes our spirit and gives revelation of His word that in turn nourishes our spiritual man.
Jesus became the source of all spiritual life when He died on that cross, shedding His blood for the cleansing of sin and by giving the world the life giving drink of the Spirit to all who would believe in Him!
And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood, and these three are One. I John 5:8
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
