Colossians 1:11-20
13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins….…20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.”

1 Peter 1:17 - 21;
19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot20 He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you 21 who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.”

Precious - the only / the precious, the final sacrifice of blood, God himself through his Son showing us his great and deep love without stain and without contaminationJesus, the only one who never sinned, through Him and Him alone - we have hope!

1 John 1: 7, "the blood of his Son Jesus, cleanseth us from all sin." (7b)
Clean - the washing / remission of our sins comes only by our faith in what Jesus did on the cross for us, that the shed blood of Jesus is the payment for our sins, He died in our place, He received what we deserve , punishment for our disobedience / sin toward God.

Hebrews 9:11 - 28, "once for all time entered the most holy place, thereby obtaining eternal redemption, no longer by the blood of goats or calves, but by his own blood. How much more the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, will cleanse our consciences from dead works to serve the living God! For this reason, he is also mediator of the new covenant, ... and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness .... he has presented himself once for all in the consummation of the ages, to remove sin by self-sacrifice Christ Himself was offered once only to take away the sins of many, ... "(12, 14 - 15a, 22b, 26b, 28a)
Own blood - the forgiveness of sin is not because of someone else's blood or something else, but it is from God  through His Son, Jesus Christ
The blood - the element in God's creation that gives life
Mediator - there has never been anyone else between God and man, only Jesus (1 Timothy 2: 5, 1 John 2: 1,2, Hebrews 9:15)
Blood - without the shedding of that which gives life (blood) , there is no payment for that which  takes life, (sin)
The sacrifice, the last, the end, the precious sacrifice of blood, the pure Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, his Son
Christ - again, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was, is and will be the One that became the propitiation for our sins
Sins - what we all have, what we need to have  forgiven, it is our disobedience to God
