“And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one’s deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot” – Because the Lord loves you, he redeemed you with something that you cannot buy and will never pass away: The Blood of His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ.
