The Blood is for atonement and has to do first with our standing before God. We need forgiveness for the sins we have committed, lest we come under judgment; and they are forgiven, not because God overlooks what we have done but because he sees the Blood. The Blood is therefore not primarily for us but for God.
Our salvation lies in looking away to the Lord Jesus and in seeing that the Blood of the Lamb has met the whole situation created by our sins and has answered it. That is the sure foundation on which we stand. Never should we try to answer Satan with our good conduct but always with the Blood. Yes, we are sinful, but, praise God! The Blood cleanses us from every sin. God looks upon the Blood whereby his Son has met the charge, and Satan has no more ground of attack. Our faith in the precious Blood and our refusal to be moved from that position can alone silence his charges and put him to flight (Romans 8:33-34); and so it will be, right on to the end (Revelation 12:11). Oh, what an emancipation it would be if we saw more of the value in God’s eyes of the precious Blood of his dear Son!
