The blood on your doorposts will serve as a sign, marking the houses where you are staying. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. This plague of death will not touch you.” (Exodus 12:13).

The whole family needs to be covered by the blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus is the only guarantee for safety against enemy forces. It washes away the sins of members of the family making the family accessible for the blessings of God. The way to cover the home with the blood of Jesus is through accepting Jesus as Lord and personal Savior of each member of the family. God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. The acceptance of Jesus as Lord in the family is affirmed by obedience to the commandments of God. If family members love the Lord, then they are living in the light of Jesus. This makes it possible for them to have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, will always cleanse them from all their sins. The family altar and participation in Church activities are very helpful in the sustenance of family faith in Jesus. Family members should cultivate the habit of reading the Bible every day using daily reading guides to ensure that no part of the word of God is neglected. Let God speak to every member of the family each day through the Bible. To serve God creditably, you need to know his will and be able to walk daily according to the will of God.

The Church is the house of God, which is immersed in the blood of Jesus. Members are required to come to Church to be in fellowship and be covered with the blood of Jesus. Any member who is unable to be present in Church frequently is denying himself/herself of the covering of the sanctifying blood of Jesus. You need to attend Church activities always to keep you in fellowship with Jesus and you receive the benefits of fellowship provided by his blood. You cannot continue to be absent from Church meetings, such as Sunday worship services, Bible studies etc. and yet claim to have effective covering of the blood of Jesus. The absence of the covering of the blood of Jesus is the reason for the various problems you face in life. Satan will use excuses to hide this fact from you. However, when you run into problems, Satan will be happy to have realized his objective of distancing you from the house of God. Therefore, do not submit to the wicked tricks of the devil. Remain in fellowship and be covered by the blood of Jesus.
