More Than …


For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed … but with the precious blood of Christ (I Peter 1:18–19 NIV).

Preparing for the LWML 75th Anniversary Diamond Dazzle, the words of a familiar Christian song come to mind: Lord, You are more precious than silver. Lord, You are more costly than gold. Lord, You are more beautiful than diamonds … We might add more words that would not fully describe our Savior: treasured, priceless, cherished, and one of a kind. Jesus Christ's precious gift of salvation is more than anything else in this world, or in all eternity.

These same words might also be used to express how our heavenly Father sees us through the life of His Son, Jesus. The ultimate price was paid, out of devotion for the Father and for God's children, provides assurance of life eternal through faith in Christ. His life exchanged for ours, that we might live as forgiven, redeemed sons and daughters of the King.
