What Makes Christ so Precious?
It is the application of the righteousness and blood of Christ which purifies the heart, makes sin hateful and Jesus Christ precious, and not only brings peace to the soul in sweet gratitude, but fills it with earnest desires to live to Gods glory and honour.
As God opens up the depth of our fall, makes the burden of sin felt, and shows the sinner his guilt and inability, He brings the proud heart down and lays us low in the dust, and as He makes us sigh and groan, He applies His precious blood. He brings the blood of sprinkling into the conscience, sheds abroad His mercy and love, and constrains our feet to walk in faith, love, and cheerful obedience.
What fountain is that which sweeps away
My sins just like a flood,
Nor lets one guilty blemish stay?
Tis Jesus precious blood!
