Blood Brother

I admit that I love Western movies; no apologies. In some of the movies the “white man” make friends with a Native American [Indian] and they went through a ceremony called ‘the blood oath.’ This involved each person cutting their hand and then they joined hands allowing their blood to intermingle. They would become ‘blood brothers.’

As I was thinking about the significance of this ceremony, I could not help in seeing the parallel in our relationship with Jesus Christ. Our salvation was made only possible by the shedding of Jesus Christ’s blood. Hebrews 9:14 It is through HIS blood we are adopted into the family of God.

When Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden, man was separated from his Creator.  When Jesus shed His blood, He provided a way back to the Father.”But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.” Ephesians 2:13

Jesus IS our blood brother.
