The Daily Breath of God
Friday, March 30 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 1:18-20It is amazing what we as individuals put value on and what we value affects our thinking and our emotions, all of which impact the direction of our lives. It does seem that perishable things such as silver or gold are somehow on most people’s minds and if they can acquire a significant amount of these things they think they will personally have more value. Yet we have seen many people who have had the ability to acquire these things in great amounts and somehow still feel empty. What possibly could have more value than these things? Well, to the Lord we are more valuable than these things and we have been redeemed, refreshed and renewed with that, which is imperishable, the precious blood of Christ. On this new day may you know that nothing in your past has made you less in the grace of Jesus the Christ. Redeemed by the blood of Christ is the declaration that you are loved now and for all eternity. This is a good day to finally rest in what God has said he has done in you through Jesus the Christ.
