Anytime we buy something we have to decide how important that thing is to us. There more we want something, the more we are willing to pay for it. You might want a new computer, but I doubt you would be willing to spend $ 150,000 on it. However, you might be willing to spend that much on a new house. Why? Because the house is more valuable to you.
Now ask yourself, “What would I be willing to give my life for?” I bet the list isn’t long, and this much is for sure: whatever it is must be extremely important to you (wife, kids, friends, etc.).
Peter said, “And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges accruing to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your sojourning here in fear; knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” (1 Peter 1:17-19).
When Christ purchased you from your sins, it was not with money, but with His precious blood. Never forget how important you are to Him.
