Something to think about.
Shedding Of Blood
22 In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. Hebrews 9:22
Though we are no longer under the law, our salvation is dependant on the shedding of Christ's blood. The crucifixion of Christ fulfills the requirements of the law. The law required the blood of a perfect innocent lamb for the forgiveness of sin. Christ became that perfect innocent lamb for us. Without Christ's sacrifice, you are inextricably intertwined with sin. It is impossible for you to remove it from your life. Since you can not extricate yourself from sin. You are bound to it, and it is the master of your life, you are its slave. Freedom comes from forgiveness not from a statement of independence. The blood of Christ is the only thing that has the power to separate you from your sin. Only through the washing away of sin by the blood of Christ will you ever be forgiven. You can be free from your sin master when you have been cleansed by the blood of Christ.
