For you know that you were redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from your fathers, not with perishable things like silver or gold,19 but of Christ, like that of an unblemished and spotless lamb. – – 1 Peter 1:18-19 (CSB)

Peter has just finished telling us that God will judge each of us according to our works (1 Peter 1:17). Remember he is speaking to the church here, that is those already converted. Just to be sure there is no controversy about a salvation by works misunderstanding he follows with the above.

You know, (completely understand) that you were not [and could not] redeemed from your previous sinful path to hell that you inherited (were taught by the world) from your fathers; with earthly riches. It was only with the sinless sacrifice of Christ at Calvary, the spilling of His precious blood that paved the way for your redemption.  

If you are redeemed by that blood today and are anything like me you have to be asking at times, Why me Lord? If you are not converted, then you need to be praying, Please Lord redeem me!
