Remembrance of the sacrifice: An offering from Nancy Jagmin

The precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without defect or blemish.

1 Peter 1:17-20

It’s a pretty difficult image to live up to.

Peter reminds us that we have the responsibility to keep this image before us, however.  The sacrifice was too perfect to be remembered only today.

Our self-centered lives seem almost contemptible in comparison. It’s tempting to use the inspiration (or the guilt) to launch a spate of good intentions for more Christ-like living.  However misguided our self-reliance, we know it’s not time to start trying yet.  Today I am called merely to let the remembrance of the sacrifice settle deep into my consciousness.
