The Moisture of The Blood of Jesus

“Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God” Romans 5: 9

Al fresco is the technique that Michelangelo Buonarroti used to paint a set of paintings in the Sistine Chapel that is in Vatican City. The main difficulty of this technique is the fact that what has been done cannot be corrected. Jan Van Eyck later discovered oil painting. Contrary to painting Al Fresco, oil painting remains wet for much longer and is easy to correct. The advantage of oil painting is the grace its moisture provides to help you correct your mistakes and perfect your painting.

Living under the law of Moses is like fresco painting and living under grace is like an oil painting. The blood of Jesus Christ continues to be wet after more than 2000 years for all those who want to repent of their sins and want to be washed in the blood of Christ in the baptismal waters. John 1:17 says, “For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” Jesus Christ came to be born into this world to save us from our sins. Will you paint your life under the law or under grace? Grace is not so that we can sin more but so that we can be perfected even more -through Jesus Christ.
