We are contained

After Ephesians 1:7-12

We are contained within
him, the blood shed and
flowing around us; it is
the blood alone that is
the conduit of forgiveness,
that blood alone that is
the channel of redemption
that blood alone that is
the sources of the riches of grace.
It is all lavished, a feast,
a never-ending banquet
of grace, our place
at the table selected
for us.

"What can wash away my sins? Nothing but the blood of Jesus! What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus! Oh, precious is the flow, that makes me white as snow! No other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus!" by Robert Lowry.
Your poem is inspired by the Lord's precious gift of His blood, shed for us on Calvary...what a priceless gift. Thank you for sharing YOUR gift of poetry with us today. Beautiful.
