1. A REDEEMED People:
Peter teaches us that a ransom must be paid, or put another way—a sacrifice must be made, to redeem us out of our useless beliefs and conduct and the price to secure our redemption is infinitely high.
1 Peter 1:17-19 And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; 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.
Every one of us has been born with a sinful nature inherited from our father and likely a flawed theology, if not religious or outright pagan traditions, in our upbringing. Peter teaches us that a ransom must be paid, or put another way—a sacrifice must be made, to redeem us out of our useless beliefs and conduct and the price to secure our redemption is infinitely high. There is no wealth on earth that can pull us out and elevate us from our state of futility. Only the shed blood of One born without sin and capable of living a life of absolutely complete obedience and righteousness is able to secure for sinful, corrupted people both a new way of living this life together AND an eternal future together in the presence of God our Blessed Redeemer.
