For you know that is 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 the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. ~ 1 Peter 1:18-19
Redeemed from the empty way of life - what a profoundly true statement. There is nothing quite so empty as life without Jesus. But that was where we were until He reached out and drew us to Him.
Oh, love that will not let me go.
I rest my weary soul in Thee
I give you back this life I owe
and in Your ocean depths it's flow
may richer, fuller be.
