“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,” Rev. 1:5
When I was in the construction business, I often gave my customer a bill when I completed their job. After they would write me a check I would write on their bill, “Paid in full.” However, you could look at that receipt and still see what the charges were before they paid me. The blood of Christ does much more than write over our sins “paid in full,” “it washed us from our sins.” When something is washed, the dirt and stains are completely gone. Hallelujah for the blood of Christ.
