What is a bloodstock agent?
Interesting question. Almost sounds gruesome, doesn’t it?
Far from it. I can’t remember how I came across this but it’s a great thought to ponder.
We live in the state of beautiful, bluegrass, horse country. Horse farms abound.
But there is a need for a person to investigate thoroughbred horses for a buyer wishing to acquire one.
This person who searches for thoroughbreds is called a bloodstock agent.
To consider a racehorse, the agent looks at the horse’s bloodline, not at what its hindquarters look like, nor at what it has or has not accomplished.
The ultimate goal of reaching the winner’s circle, with the garland of roses of victory for the Kentucky Derby or any other race, comes through the bloodline. It determines whether or not the horse will be a champion.
As a result, the horse’s value is determined by the father’s bloodline and name.
Do you see it? When you apply this to yourself, do you see that your worth is not through what you have accumulated or accomplished, but it’s the divine Bloodline within you?
Your value is not performance-based but Name-based and Blood-based, through the Father’s Name and the Bloodline of Christ’s redemption, that scarlet Life flowing from Immanuel’s heart into yours.
Have you realized your eternal value through your heavenly Father’s Name, through the Bloodline of the Bridegroom, in Whose Name you have committed yourself in covenant, vowing to love and honor Him, forsaking all others, cleaving only unto Him, thereby upholding His Name?
Oh, that Blood…
There is power, power, wonder working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb. *
It reaches to the highest mountain
And it flows to the lowest valley
The blood that gives me strength
From day to day
It will never lose
It will never lose
It will never lose its power. **
For there is victory in that Blood…
O victory in Jesus,
My Savior, forever.
He sought me and bought me
With His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him
And all my love is due Him,
He plunged me to victory,
Beneath the cleansing flood. ***
Oh, “How we thank God for all of this! It is He who makes us victorious through Jesus Christ our Lord!” (1 Cor. 15:57 TLB)
Our ultimate goal is to reach the winner’s circle of heaven with the garland of victory obtained through that Bloodline.
As Paul said of himself but applicable to us all, “I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” (Phil. 3:14 NLT) For “overwhelming victory is ours through Christ who loved us enough to die for us.” (Rom. 8:37 TLB)
Your Bloodline will determine whether or not you are a champion!
May you know your value and worth through that divine Bloodline…Lynn
*There is Power in the Blood
**The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power
