You Were Bought at a Price

The other day I remembered something my Dad preached about, years ago at our old church during the Lord's supper.  He spoke on the topic that our salvation wasn't free--we were bought at a price. I thought this would serve as a great reminder to us all. :) 

It's amazing to think that our salvation didn't come cheaply.  At any moment God could have chosen to "lower the price" instead of sending Jesus to die on the cross for our sins...

(Marking us down to 50% off, or buy 1 get 2 free, etc........ ;) 

But He didn't!  Each and every individual Christian was bought at the same price.  And a very expensive price that was! 

That price was the blood of Jesus Christ.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.  1 Peter 1:18-20

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
How differently things would have turned out had the Lord decided that the blood of his Son was too high a price to pay...  Nothing would be the same.
 
You are not your own;
you were bought at a price.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Praise the Lord all the earth! :)
