Image via WikipediaWhile in the shower, where the mind has nothing practical to busy itself with, I wandered back to memories of trinkets from my past. There were shiny things to hang upon my walls, books, bedspreads and other ornaments. They all suited me perfectly because I knew what I liked and had picked them out myself.
"Yes, I bought them for myself" I was thinking. "I'm not sure that they were worth the money."
Then I saw the image of Jesus on the cross, arms outstretched, bleeding. I stood with the water from the showerhead pouring over me and I began to weep, for He said:
I bought you for myself because I knew what I wanted. And yes, you were well worth the price.
What a powerful reminder of His amazing love. Have you accepted what He purchased for you? He offers the gift of Himself to all who will receive.
For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:20 NKJV
