“For you are bought with a price.” I Corinthians 6:20. “…when He shall appear, we shall be like Him.” I John 3:2. God has made a great investment in believers. They have been purchased by the blood of Christ and have become children of the Heavenly Father. Their true worth may not be evident now, but it will be manifested when Christ returns and transforms them into His likeness. When God chose us and redeemed us, it was not because of our goodness. Nothing in us merited His love, for we were helpless sinners. But He who sees the end from the beginning planned that we will be changed into His likeness when Jesus returns to this earth. Those Christ purchased by His cross will be perfected by His coming.
