Hair of the Dog
It’s been said that a hangover can be cured by a mixed drink containing more alcohol, the substance that caused the hangover in the first place. In the same way, a snake bite can be treated with venom from a snake. These seem like senseless solutions to a problem, however they are often used in those situations. Because of the inevitable sin in our lives, we deserve death, our own blood shed, and yet it is death that has saved us. The blood of Christ is the only thing that can cover us to make us clean. May we seek to be covered in His blood so that we can find the forgiveness of our sins because of the sacrifice that He made on our behalf.
