But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.1 John 1:7.

Oh, what good news the gospel of Jesus Christ declares to sinners. We are by birth and nature children of darkness, loving darkness rather than the Light of the truth (John 3:19; Eph. 2:12). However, by the marvelous power of God through the gospel of Christ (Rom. 1:16), God has delivered us from the power of darkness into the kingdom of the Son of His love (Col. 1:13). That we should show forth the praises of Him Who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light (2 Cor. 4:6; 1 Peter 2:9). Furthermore, the gospel declares unto all that believe, that the precious blood atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin. Not the blood of bulls and goats, not the ceremony and traditions of men, but the glorious blood offering of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, nothing less and nothing more (Heb. 9:26; 1 Peter 1:18-20), cleanses from all sin. Original sin, actual sin, spiritual and natural sin, ALL sin forever!! Oh, the glory of this perfect, full and finished salvation we are blessed to possess and enjoy through our victorious Lord. "Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Cor. 15:57).
