Touched by the Blood of Jesus

"But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin." (NLT)

The flower pictured above shows great beauty and purity with the main structure of white, but the tinge of red on the tips makes it much more appealing.  I see Jesus as the pure one seen in the body of this flower.  He shed His blood for us and is eager to cover us with His blood.  I see the red tingeing on the flower as the blood of Jesus available to be brushed on us to cover us as protection from evil and from the earned punishment for sins.  This is one of my favorite floral pictures since it shows both the purity of Jesus, the only one free of sin, and the availability of His blood, the atonement for sin.  Thank you, Lord, for the beauty of flowers and for the beauty of your sacrifice for us.
