It Cost Him His Blood
         If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.         
         (John 8:36)

  ...People are saved by Christ, they will say; but while you are upon earth, you must not be made free from sin. This is as much as if one should be in Turkey a slave, chained to a boat, and one should come to redeem him to go into his own country; but say the Turks, thou art redeemed, but while thou art upon the earth, thou must not go out of Turkey, nor have the chain off thee. So say Satan's messengers, you are redeemed, but must carry a body of death about you... But I say you are redeemed by Christ; it cost him his blood...
  (George Fox)
