Day #5: You have a great redemption!

Further up and further in: Luke 1-2, John 1, Hebrews 1

1 Peter 1:18-19 – For you know you were redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from your fathers, not with perishable things like silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of an unblemished and spotless lamb.

Lord Jesus, what a price you paid!  When God demanded blood for my failure to obey him, you shed all your blood.  When God demanded payment for the sins of all people, dear Son of God, you gave your life.  You are truly God and fully man.  And you, dear God-man, you stepped into the scales of justice to make the greatest payment that has ever been paid. The redemption price for me and for all the world was the holy, innocent and divine blood of Jesus!  What a price you paid for me, dear Jesus!  Thank you.  Amen.
