I hope you’ve had a chance to pop over to C&T member Mark Dingeman’s blog and read his series of posts on the theme of “the blood speaks.” If not, I recommend doing so. I particularly resonated with this bit:
Beloved, I do not believe we have but touched the surface of the force and completed work of Jesus’s poured out blood, which is actually supposed to bear fruit of “gladness” in and through our lives. Why? – because we have been looking at our Savior, in all truth, as He was, before His cross, not after (see II Cor. 5:16b) … meaning, beholding our Savior while the Law was still in force, not after it had had every single jot and tittle requirement fulfilled and then nailed to a cross, never, ever, EVER, to have a voice again to those who died with Christ when they were born again and water baptized. (Rom. 7:4; 8:3-4a; 6:3-4; Col. 2:14-15; I Tim. 1:9a).
