PRICE WE WOULDN’T PAY
message of salvation is given to us free.
We can hear it in the churches on every few blocks downtown.
You can hear it on the radio for free; it can be given to you
free on a CD or hear it online for free. So what value or price do
we put on this salvation?
let me think this out... I have my one and only child that I so
deeply love and treasure. From
his birth I have to let him go and be raised by another family that
is very loving and Christian. and
I know they will worship and adore him. But for 33 years I can’t
go there to be with him or bring him back with me, even though I
know ahead of time that later he’ll be wrongly and severely
mistreated, beaten almost to death, stripped, mocked, scorned, and
have his body hung upon a cross with nails driven through both of
his hands and both of his feet. Then, after I watch him suffer there
for hours, then he will die. And to think I cannot stop it, help him
or interfere in this journey of pain and suffering that he will have
to go through. I can’t go and wrap my arms around him and say
“Son, I love you so very much!”
No, instead I have to watch every second, minute, hour and
day of his pain as he suffers in agony until he dies. Even though I
know that this very act will save so many others, there’s not
enough money or anything else of value for me to allow this to
happen to my child -- BUT
49:15-16 I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the
palms of My hands.
the stories from the apostles & prophets, the lessons learned,
prophecies and promises posted of things to come; all this was
written so that we would have a guide book (the Bible) to help us
live by. We would know
what had happen and the story of GOD’S PRICELESS SACRIFICE (JESUS)
that was given in order for us to be heirs to the King and to
inherit our place in God’s kingdom. And we have it offered to us
it a price we would pay? So would you trade places with God and give
your child and watch him suffer and die?
count it a priceless blessing to receive this message of salvation
and sanctification of God’s Word for Free. But, to God it
is costly and precious and we must distribute it with discriminating
judgment and wisdom. Matthew 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto
the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they
trample them under their feet & turn again and rend you.
61:10 My soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with
the garments of salvation.
Thought for the Month: The happiest people don’t have the
best of everything; They just make the best of everything!
