Christ’s Precious Blood part 1

 Christ’s precious blood—why am I calling it precious?

God’s Word calls it precious.

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, [as] silver and gold, from your vain conversation [received] by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 1 Peter 1 :18-19 KJV

What does the blood of Christ do for us from this verse?

It redeems us. So what does redeem really mean?

From Webster’s 1828 Dictionary redeem means:

  • To purchase back; to ransom; to liberate or rescue from captivity or bondage, or from any obligation or liability to suffer or to be forfeited, by paying an equivalent; as, to redeem prisoners or captured goods; to redeem a pledge.
  • To rescue; to recover; to deliver from.
  • To free by making atonement.
  • To pay the penalty of.
  • To save.
  • In theology, to rescue and deliver from the bondage of sin and the penalties of God’s violated law, by obedience and suffering in the place of the sinner, or by doing and suffering that which is accepted in lieu of the sinner’s obedience.

All from the meaning of the word redeem then we know that Christ’s blood purchased us, liberated us, rescued us, freed us, saved us, delivered us from the captivity, bondage and penalty of sin.

I am liberated!! I am rescued!! I am freed!! I am saved!! I am delivered!! Yahoo!! Thank you Jesus, my Savior my Liberator, my Rescuer, My Deliverer!!

Oh, praise Him with me won’t you?

  1. I am thankful that unlike ‘silver and gold’ ..things we must attain that Christ’s blood and redemption is free for us – we don’t have to strive to get it! Great post!
