Maybe the best things in life truly are free:
“They are justified freely by his grace through the redemption in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as an expiation, through faith, by his blood, to prove his righteousness because of the forgiveness of sins previously committed, through the forbearance of God – to prove his righteousness in the present time, that he might be righteous and justify the one who has faith in Jesus.” -Romans 3:24-26 NAB
How much is salvation worth? How much would it cost us to pay for our own redemption? It would cost more than all of the gold in the world, yet we have the opportunity to receive God’s grace free through Jesus Christ.
If grace does not cost anything, why do so many people reject it? God is freely offering freedom from sin, but some choose to hold tightly to it. They cannot seem to let go of their treasures and desires of this world long enough to see the bigger picture. Indeed, the world is in a sad state.
Maybe it has something to do with today’s world. Every time you see the word free, there is always a catch.
