You must know (recognize) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way of living inherited by tradition from [your] forefathers, not with corruptible things [such as] silver and gold, But [you were purchased] with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a [sacrificial] lamb without blemish or spot. It is true that He was chosen and foreordained (destined and foreknown for it) before the foundation of the world, but He was brought out to public view (made manifest) in these last days (at the end of the times) for the sake of you. Through Him you believe in (adhere to, rely on) God, Who raised Him up from the dead and gave Him honor and glory, so that your faith and hope are [centered and rest] in God.” 1 Peter 1:18-21 AMPC
It is so unfortunate to see some of our brothers in Christ purchased by the redemption power of the blood go back into the old culture or religious way of living before they accept Jesus Christ. They are trying to serve Jesus Christ and at the same time practice some cultural or occultism to save them. By so doing they open themselves to witchcraft, because they open themselves up to that which Jesus Christ already destroyed on the cross by paying the price with His blood.
That’s why verse eighteen of our text remind us that we are not redeem from our tradition or fruitless way of living but by the precious blood of Jesus Christ.
We should make sure we are living our lives pattern to our trust in the redemption power of the blood of Jesus Christ by faith or else we will attract the activities of witches in our lives.
Today trust that the blood of Jesus Christ is powerful enough has already provide full redemption our lives.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father I thank You for Your word. Thank you Lord for making Jesus Christ my redemption. Amen.
