The last blog post would not put this scripture on with it so I begin another post today :oD May you be blessed because of my computer's quirks.
"...Knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver and gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ."
1 Peter 1:18-19
Our Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world is Jesus. (John 1:29)
When you accepted Jesus as your Saviour, your payment for your sins, it was His precious blood in which the Father saw you through. Jesus was our atonement, our covering.
The Father no longer sees us, our filthy rags~~~all our sins, all our works, everything that we may think has merit. (Isaiah 64:6)
When we have Jesus' blood covering us, the Father sees a new creation. Brand new. Clean. Holy through Jesus' holiness.
Your value goes from zero to priceless because of Jesus' precious blood redeeming you. The precious blood of the Lamb of God shed for you.
We can not take this lightly, and we must remember even in our darkest day to what extent Jesus' work on the cross did for us. Even our newest sins do not keep us from our salvation~~~but they sure can point us to Him in a more poignant humbleness as we can truly begin to understand the depths of His sacrifice for us, the depths of His love for us.
Truly we have reason to glorify the LORD every moment. Do this with your lives, dear ladies. Find joy in what you do~~~especially the every day things you do. Live in a humble, thankful way and even the angels will marvel at how you glorify Him.
