Price Has Already Been Paid May 16, 2016

It is said that when Mary Mitchell, known as the Queen of the Gypsies, died, she was buried with all the traditional gypsy ceremony, including a necklace of fifty dollar gold pieces and thousand dollar bills. Why the money? To pay her way into heaven. Many today hold this same belief, thinking they can earn their way into heaven. This is often done by generous gifts to charity and a litany of good works. Sadly, this is mission impossible. God, in mercy, sent His Son the Lord Jesus to earth. He bore our sins on that old cross, providing the only way to heaven. As He died, He cried out, “It is finished,” indicating that the price has been paid, and our salvation is a gift. Paul explained – “By grace are you saved through faith, and that not of yourselves. It is the gift of God…”
