1 Peter 1:18-19 AMP
18 You must know (recognize) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way of living inherited by tradition from [your] forefathers, not with corruptible things [such as] silver and gold, 19 But [you were purchased] with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a [sacrificial] lamb without blemish or spot.

Psalm 36:7 … How precious[03368] is Your lovingkindness[02617]O God!

  • precious[03368 = priceless, excellent, exquisite, valuable, prized, rare

Broken Bread – No Greater Love
By Karen Holland

A body offered for all
The blood of the perfect Lamb
Broken bread, poured out wine
The Lamb, the Son of God
No greater love than this.

A life lain down
Broken bread, poured out wine.

A living sacrifice
The pearl of greatest price
A life lain down for friends
No greater love than this.

John 15:13Greater love hath no man than this: that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Romans 12:1-2Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
