Sheriff’s deputies and other first responders have recently been provided with a drug that saves lives. The new drug, Narcan, immediately counteracts the effects of an opioid overdose. Narcan is the brand name of Narloxone, and it blocks opiates such as heroin, Lortab, methadone, Percocet and oxycontin from the brain’s opioid receptors. If administered in a timely fashion, the new drug can save the life of someone who might otherwise die from an accidental overdose. It has already been given credit for saving the lives of several individuals.
This reminds us that there is a cure for sin. If the blood of Jesus is administered to someone who is suffering from the spiritually fatal effect of sin, that person will be saved.
It works every time!
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.”—1 John 1:7.
