Jesus is not on record for buying anything, but he did make a purchase for people. How? Not with money, but with his blood. When he offered his blood, he did it with pain and torture that none of us have experienced. He did it for us who believe and what did He get in return? His reward is seen in three ways. The reward of Christ’s sufferings and the purchase of his blood results in the cleansing and beautifying of his people. (Ephesians 5:25-27) The reward of Christ’s sufferings is also seen in the zeal of his people for good deeds. (Titus 2:14) The reward of Christ’s sufferings is a ransomed people from every tribe and language and nation. He bought us from slavery in sin, into freedom with Him. (Revelation 5:9) How much of our life does Jesus have in return for His purchase?
