What better metaphor to describe the redemption of a soul. Jesus’ blood, when claimed by sinners, covers our lifeless deeds, adds beauty to our barren dispositions, and brightens our outlooks on life. Jesus washes our sin-soiled souls, preparing us to meet God the Father. He, then, looks at us and sees nothing but Jesus’ righteousness covering us.
