Blood Saves Lives

The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.

1 Timothy 1: 15

Dengue fever is one of the most endemic communicable diseases in the country. Because almost every family had at least one or more members who suffered from the illness, others take it for granted. For this very reason, a lot of patients who were rushed to the hospital were already at the worst stage of bleeding which leads to death.

My brother was one of the victims of Aedes Egypti, the mosquito which carries Dengue Fever. He was in elementary when he had the disease. His platelet dropped and blood transfusion was necessary. Glory to God, a kind donor donated his blood and my brother’s platelet increased thereafter. Today, my brother is now a Civil Engineer. Thanks be to God! Thanks be to the person who donated his blood.

Blood saves lives. Isn’t it that the blood of Jesus which saved us from the slavery of sin? All because of Jesus, who was crucified and died, we can inherit the kingdom of God and we can live in eternity. The wages of sin is death but God is so gracious, that those who believes in his son Jesus will be rewarded with eternal life.

Without the blood of Jesus, we’re all doomed to suffer in the blazing fire of hell.
