There is a Fountain Filled with Blood"
This Sunday as we continue looking at the back story of some of the great hymns of our faith and their scriptural bases for those hymns; today we focused on “There is a Fountain Filled with Blood”.
There is no greater or more eternally important theme in all of Scripture than that of the shed blood of the sacrificial substitute. For example, when Paul writes in Romans 3:25; God had set forth the Lord Jesus Christ to be a propitiation “by (or through) his blood.”
Paul's point is that what quenched the wrath of God and averted the death stroke of divine judgment was not primarily Jesus’ life, perfect and sinless though it be, nor his teaching, wise and instructive as it is, but rather the shedding of his blood on the cross of Calvary.
This Sunday we want to see that truth in scripture as well as in a hymn written by a William Cowper that is precious to many of us: There is a Fountain Filled with Blood. Sunday's message prepared us for our observance of the Lord's Table.
