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.
