1 Peter 1:18-19
Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Before our conversion, we were not any different from the rest of the world. Our walk and talk was as empty and trivial as everyone else who is without Christ. For us to be redeemed, it took the precious blood of Jesus Christ, which is perfect and without corruption or sin.
