Faith Building Verses I Peter 1:18-19

February 11th, 2022

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Faith-Building Verses are First Peter 1:18 and 19.

“For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life….., but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.”

Some of the best athletes in the world are competing for the gold in Beijing. However, there are treasures even more valuable to embrace.

Gold or silver medals are awards, showing the achievements of athletes, but the blood of Jesus shed at the cross reveals His accomplishment to pay the price for our sins.

According to Ephesians 1:7, “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.”

These faith-building verses highlight the value of Christ’s blood to be worth more than gold in the Year of Relationship.
