Is blood really thicker than water?

I remember growing up, my mother would always say that “Blood is thicker than water.” By this she meant that blood relatives are better than friends. Blood is such an odd way to describe relationships but we do it all the time. I mean Jesus shed his blood for us and he is not biologically related to any of us. He is also the Son of our Holy Father so technically He is family. Jesus also washes our sins away with water. Blood and Water. Two totally separate substances that give us so much. Blood is in our veins and water in in our body. These two things are invested into us equally and we need both to survive. Physically and Spiritually. If Jesus did not wash away our sins with water, we would forever remain guilty. If Jesus did not shed his blood for us. We would never know the love and peace God gives us. Blood naturally is without a doubt thicker than water but spiritually, blood and water share the same depth… Redemption.
