Text: I Peter 1:17-19
#5 in I Peter Series
Because of Christ’s blood, the redeemed of God are also the esteemed of God.
When Christ’s precious blood was shed for us, we were given value and worth. No longer are we to view or treat ourselves cheaply and no longer are we to live our lives aimlessly.When Christ’s precious blood was shed for us, we were given a new bloodline. We were adopted into a new relationship with God as our Father. As His children we should desire to become like Him in holiness, and live for Him in obedience and reverence.
In short, since Christ’s precious blood was shed for us and He has been raised to glory, our faith and hope are in God. In this final message in 1 Peter, the desire remains that your peace and grace would be multiplied to you as you cast you hope and faith upon the bloody riches of God’s grace as contained in the good news of the Gospel.1 Peter 1:17-19
