” … you were redeemed … with the precious blood of Christ” (1 Peter 1:18-19).
May we never forget the cost of our redemption. Christ’s sacrifice of Himself, on the Cross, is of more value than any of the things of this world. This world will pass away. Our redemption, purchased for us by the shedding of the precious blood of Christ, will never pass away. It is eternal. It lasts for ever. The things of this world are “corruptible.” The salvation that God has given to us, in Christ, is “incorruptible.” It is “kept in heaven for us” – and while we are here on earth, with all our struggles, we are being kept by the power of God, through faith, for our full enjoyment of God’s eternal salvation (1 Peter 1:3-5). What a great God! What a great Saviour! What a great salvation! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
