Well, in hindsight, yes I see it was a bad idea (but who lives in hindsight?!) … I took my young son with me to a hospital in order to see someone who was recovering from surgery. Because I’m a pastor some people seem to feel that I have a stronger stomach than others, so every gross detail of the procedure was explained to me, including lots of comments about veins and blood. I’m getting used to these verbally-graphic and horrific (…don’t cringe, straight face, don’t faint, nod and smile) 80’s-gory-movie moments, but my son is absolutely not! He fainted (thankfully, I caught him before he hit the floor), and then he asked me never to take him on another hospital visit again. I’ve learned my lesson. However, I can’t stop exposing him, or you, to gross and gory details while talking about Jesus. Jesus’ blood is part of the reason we are able to befriend God.
This video/audio explores Romans 3:21-31 (part 2), highlighting the significance of Jesus’ blood.
