The Value of a Soul
“You were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold…but with the precious blood of Christ.” ( 1 Peter 1:18-19 )
while recently talking to a man who sold real estate- I asked him, “What determines the worth of a piece of property?”
He said, “What a person is willing to pay for it.”
In other words, it doesn’t matter how much you paid for it yourself. It’s what another person is willing to pay to have it for himself or herself.
That makes me want to shout! You and I must be worth something if Jesus would pay His life to have us for His own. Jesus is the proof of how much we’re worth.
Do you know how much you weigh? what if…..you were to call a jeweler or a bank and ask how much your weight is worth in gold- Then realize there’s no comparison to your worth in blood…the blood of Jesus Christ.
