Why We Love Him
1. JESUS REDEEMED US AND GOT US BACK TO FATHER GOD
1 Pet 1:18-19 knowing that you were not redeemed (purchased) with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as a lamb without blemish and without spot.
Jesus Redeemed us from the slavery of sin with His blood
“Redeemed” - Purchased with a price out of slavery’s bondage
Rev 5:9 they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God (The Father) by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation
