Cost=Value

I’ve heard it said, “It’s not what something cost, it’s what something is worth.” In theory this cliche sounds good but it’s not entirely true. We live in a transactional world and before any kind of currency is exchanged, the worth or value must at a bare minimum equal the cost required for acquisition. Let me lift it up….ignoring man’s foolery (sin) God saw enough value in us that he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Cor 5:21). The blood stained cross was the currency used to pay our sin debt in full and reconcile us back to God because he valued his glory and us greater than our sins! The value of your soul is measured by the price paid for its redemption. The Bible says, “knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot” (1 Peter 1:18-19).
