So this is what it means. So you want to write that down in your list as he tells us about where this grace and peace comes from. He tells us a lot about Jesus and he tells us that Jesus released us from our sins. Do you know what that means?
It means that it‟s all under the blood. You say, but it‟s not right that somebody be set free from their sins when they‟ve done that to me. Listen, Jesus paid for their sins in full and Jesus is not going leave them as the same person that they were because that old man, what they were died and they became a new creature in Christ Jesus.
He‟s a fair and just and righteous God and He can be trusted. So it says that, “… He released us from our sins…,” How did He do it? “… by His blood, without the shedding of blood ….” and Hebrews says this and Leviticus says it, “Without the shedding of blood, there‟s no remission of sins ….” there‟s no payment for your sins. The only thing that can redeem you from sin is not the corruptible things of silver and gold.
But we were redeemed with the precious blood of a Lamb …,” a Lamb, now listen carefully, speaking of Jesus, because you want to know that because of what comes in Revelation, chapter 5, “… a Lamb without spot, a Lamb without blemish.” So this is one of the things that you would add to your list.

And the only way you can have your sins forgiven is by believing in the One who lived and died for you, the One who released you from your sins through His blood. That‟s the only way.

Salvation is simply recognizing who Jesus Christ is, that He is God, that He is one with the Father, that He is the only way to God, that He is the payment for your sins, that He is the lamb of God that will take away your sin and just simply saying I need You. I want You. I receive You.
Now priests offer sacrifices. And the sacrifice that you offer is the sacrifice of yourself.
Now what does it mean the root of David?
