You Know It



For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. 1 Peter 1:18-19

There’s a lot to consider in today’s scripture:

  • ·        Without God, life is empty
  • ·        God paid the price for you to have a full life now and eternally
  • ·        Your salvation wasn’t easy or cheap
  • ·        Gold and silver (and all our treasures) are only of value temporarily
  • ·        Jesus was sinless, therefore He is the only acceptable Lamb offering
  • ·        His blood permanently fulfills the Old Testament system of reconciliation

Your salvation has already been arranged!

The scripture begins for you know. Lean in. Trust it. Did you need to be reminded?

I’m excited to be hosting my friend, Sherry, co-founder of White Lotus, Cambodia this week. As such, Seeds of Scripture might be somewhat irregular.

Join us Sunday evening from 7-8:30pm in the UCC Medfield parlor to hear about Sherry's path to becoming a missionary and her work in Cambodia.
