5 Truths about Blood

My granddaughter Lisette was five months old on Easter! She is growing so fast. I might not believe it if I didn't see her with my own eyes. Her unbelievable growth reminds me of finding out Sydnee has O- blood. I thought, her entire 25 years of life, her blood was O+. The news was hard to believe. I asked her to have the doctor type her blood a second time just to make absolutely positively beyond a shadow of a doubt sure they were sure!

Have you ever considered how vital blood is to life? You know where I'm going with this, not just for physical life but spiritual life too. John 6:53-54 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

I was afraid for Sydnee to take the Rh factor shot but I worried more about mixing blood types. Everything worked out but I sure gave blood a good going over in my mind. I want to share with you some ah-ha truths, 5 truths about blood:
  • Blood cannot be made.
  • Blood has to be given freely (donated) from one person to another.
  • Jesus must have O- because he's a universal donor.
  • Jesus never has a blood shortage.
  • Jesus never has "low" blood. His blood will never lose its power.
What can make us whole again? NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS! Blood really is liquid life. Forgiveness of sin by the blood of Jesus Christ is eternal life.

I want to hear from you. Please share your interesting truth about blood in a comment.

  1. Love the line about Jesus being O- since He had to be a universal donor! I've often thought about donating blood, but never have. Something to ponder some more. Hope all is well with Sydnee!

    1. Hey! Thanks for stopping by. I used to donate blood all the time but haven't in awhile. I'm glad Jesus never stops donating! Sydnee and Baby Lisette are doing wonderful. How is your book doing? I need to get a copy. I wrote and published a book in 2010. We have several things in common. :)
