ALL sin.

“If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.”

1 John 1:7

Based on this verse, how much sin does the blood of Jesus purify us of?

A bit? Some? A little?

No.

All sin.

As John says later:

“I write to you because your sins have been forgiven…”

Have been. Finished action.

All of our sin was forgiven at the cross.

This is what John is driving at when he says ‘Nobody born of God is able to sin.’

We have been completely purified of all sin.

Spurgeon describes it as if we are bathing in Christ’s blood. Joseph Prince says we are like rocks in a perpetual waterfall of cleansing and forgiveness.

It is impossible for us, in Christ, to sin. We are in a constant state of cleansing and forgiveness.

That is the power of the blood of Christ.

Oh amazing grace!
