Today's Verse : 1 Peter 1:18-19


January 18, 2012

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 forefathers, but with the precious
blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
-- 1 Peter 1:18-19
A: "How much did it cost?" B: "What? This old thing? This sack
of bones and blood and brain? This heart and mind and soul that
live inside?" A: "Yeah! How much did it cost?" B: "It cost the
greatest gift of heaven to redeem it and make me whole. That's how
much God thinks of me. Incredible, isn't it?!"
Father, I am bewildered, humbled, and thrilled to know that you
value me so highly. Forgive me for cheapening myself with sin, for
dwelling on things that are petty, and for chasing after things
that are worthless. Thank you for loving me so. By your Spirit,
please help me live up to the value you see in me and aspire to the
lofty life you call me to live. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
