Washed in the Blood

Sometimes one still finds the Gospel message in the most unlikely of places. I saw this cartoon posted on a social media site around Easter this year. I remember thinking, what a powerful image!

I was instantly reminded of a grand old hymn whose chorus asked,

Are you washed in the blood, in the soul-cleansing blood of the Lamb? Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Yes, in today’s highly secularized world, where Easter has become little more than chocolate bunnies and a long weekend, it was truly refreshing to stumble upon this comic strip.

Kudos to Mastroianni and Hart. Well done.
