For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. Through him you BELIEVE in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your FAITH and HOPE are in God.
1 Peter 1:18-21
Please tell me that this lights a fire in you! You see we worship a God, not just any God, one that knows your name and provided payment so that one day you will not die, but have an everlasting life with an everlasting God.
And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were SLAIN, and with your blood you PURCHASED for God.
In a loud voice they were singing “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!”
I absolutely love this. God provides out of love. Redeeming Love! Not that any of us are deserving of it, but that out of our imperfections Jesus laid down his life to save YOU. There is no self-help book that does that. There is only one fountain, one well spring, and one saving God. You better find Him.
