Thoughts From Keith Crews

knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot (1 Pet 1:18-19).
What do you count precious to you?  The blood of Christ is precious.  His blood has purchased us and redeemed us from sin.  You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men (1 Cor 7:23).  We have forgiveness of sins through His blood (Eph 1:7).  He washed us from our sins in His own blood (Rev 1:5).  To take advantage of that precious blood we must be baptized into His death (Rom 6:3-4).  Our old man must be put to death to be freed from sin (Rom 6:6-7).  We must be born again through the word of God (1 Pet 1:23).  No other sacrifice would do because Christ was the only one without blemish and without spot.  He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us (2 Cor 5:21).  Do you really value Jesus?
