Lincoln’s Blood on Girl’s Silk Dress Offers Inspiration for the World

There is a little piece of silk in the museum of Springfield, Illinois, which could not be bought for any amount of money.

That little bit of silk is covered with blood. It was once a part of a dress worn by a beautiful girl who sat by Abraham Lincoln when he was shot.

It was the beautiful girl who took his head in her lap, as a mother would receive the head of a baby, as she held him while he bled his life out.

The State of Illinois purchased the dress and cut out this piece of silk covered with the blood of the great statesman, emancipator of an enslaved race, and inspirer of his nation.

If a state would do that for the blood of a man, what should the world do for the blood of Jesus with all of its emancipating power and all its cohesiveness for a scattered race?

For, the race of mankind, without regard to nationality or color or condition of life, is ever to be united and held, it will be by the cohesiveness of His blood.

“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.” –Esphesians 1:7
