Getting What We Don’t Pay For December 5, 2016

The statement “You only get what you pay for.” Is often made by those who have tried to save money by buying the cheapest item they could find, only to learn that it was of poor quality. While often true in the world of commerce, when it comes to acquiring things in the spiritual, realm, it does not hold true. That’s because none of us can buy forgiveness or a home in heaven. Thankfully the Lord Jesus Christ offers forgiveness and peace of mind as a gift. One New Testament writer explained it as follows- “Not by works of righteousness that we have done, but according to His mercy He saves us.” God’s grace is not for sale. It is free. I know that’s a hard concept to wrap our minds around, but it is true. And no matter who we are, or how bad we have been, Jesus invites us, “Come to me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
