Daily devotional: Jesus bought us at a high price

Scripture
And they sang a new song: "You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation."
Revelation 5:9 NIV

Observation
Jesus bought us for God at a high price—with His very own blood. He is worthy of all praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!

Application
Give Jesus thanks and praise for His sacrifice for me.

Prayer
Lord Jesus, You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals. Thank you for submitting to being slain so that with Your blood You could purchase me for God. You are worthy to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise! I worship You and give you praise. I love you and submit to You. I have been crucified with You and I no longer live, but You live in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in You, who loved me and gave Yourself for me (Galatians 2:20).
