“For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors,but with PRECIOUS BLOOD, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, THE BLOOD OF CHRIST. “-{1 Peter 1;18-19 }

“Precious” – {Timios from time = to value or honor.} It describes that which is valuable, highly prized, desirable, costly, as a precious stone. His blood is precious because its value is way and beyond our understanding or highest evaluation. Because it is the Blood of Christ offered for our sin. His life laid down to pay for our sin so we would not die in our sin. As God is infinite so our sin is infinite against Him without the intervention and substitutionery death of the LORD Jesus and the shedding of His Blood we would all spend eternity in Hell, “But God…” The Blood shed is the evidence of The death of the LORD Jesus. What makes it ultimately “precious” is because of Who’s blood it is, and what the giving up of His life now potentially means to all who repent towards God and place their lives in submission to the LORD Jesus. Precious, powerful blood! There is nothing “magical” about the blood, it is the symbol, evidence of His life giving up for sinners, that is so so precious to us and powerful!
