If you are saved, a believer who walks with Christ. You were chosen and you were bought for a high price. Imagine that, you were purchased with something more valuable than silver and gold. Unblemished and spotless, as that of a lamb. The precious blood of Jesus Christ.
What does it mean to be bought with blood? It means Jesus is your master and you are not your own. Jesus loves you and He has chosen you out of the world. You are not of the world and the world does not love you. The world only loves its own. You were bought for a high price, purchased by Jesus Christ. Because of this, the world hates you but it has hated Him before it hated you. But take heart, He has overcome the world. So love one another, for this is His command. The one with blood as precious as a lamb.
Though you have not seen him, you love him, and though you do not see him now, you believe in Him. Your soul has been saved as the outcome of your faith. 1 Peter 1:8,9.
You were chosen and you were bought for a high price.
