Power in the Blood of Jesus Christ
Blood in our bodies brings oxygen and nutrients to all the parts of our body so they can keep working. Blood carries carbon dioxide and other waste materials to the lungs, kidneys, and digestive system to be removed from the body. Blood also fights infections and carries hormones around the body.
1 Corinthians 15:46 “However, the spiritual is not first but the natural, and afterward the spiritual”. Things in the natural often help me understand things in the spiritual.

Listen, your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground.’” CHRIST’S BLOOD SPEAKS MERCY/FORGIVENESS
