July 4 – No Respecter of Persons

In Sweden, not even a Princess can get away with breaking the traffic laws. Princess Madeleine was recently pulled over and faces a $150 fine for driving in a bus lane. The law is no respecter of persons. God, in His love and mercy has provided one way to heaven. He did that by sending His Son, Jesus Christ to take our place on the Cross, and pay the price we could not afford. If He had declared that we could buy our way to heaven, the rich would have had the advantage. If we could work our way to heaven, only industrious would make it. No, God in His wisdom tells us there is only one way for everyone. We are to confess our spiritual p0overty, admit we are sinners by nature and by choice, by faith receive Jesus, who took the punishment for us, and accept the gift of eternal life. God’s Word informs us that, “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
