…You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. .. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 ESV
One of our grandsons used to love hiding in a closet and quietly listening to us call his name. The longer we took to locate him the better he liked it! He was lost because in a moment of distraction we forgot about him.
“I was lost bur now I’m found” are the words of John Newtown’s hymn. But we were not lost because of Gods inattention. Instead we intentionally chose hiding over fellowship with Him. But God has chosen at great personal cost to find us. Our redemption meant that by His great love He chose the loss of His Son as the price of our return. Now that is a value and a cost far beyond anything else in earth or Heaven!
