The value of most things is determined by the price paid for them. If someone paid a million dollars for let us say, a rare painting, and gave it as a gift to you for free, would its value be less because it was free to you? No, it would still be worth a million dollars because that was the value placed on it when the person paid a million dollars for it.
Sin was a debt that we could not pay. Christ paid a debt He didn’t owe. God paid for our sin with the life of his Son, Jesus. Then he offered salvation, eternal life to us for free, all we have to do is accept it. Should we treat God’s offer for eternal life lightly, just because it’s free to us? God paid the ultimate price, the value was set with the blood of Christ on the cross. The Son of God, the one who created all things, (Colossians 1:16), paid with his life, that you and I may have eternal life. It is a priceless gift that we can never repay.
If you don’t know the Lord. If you don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus, He is waiting with your free gift of salvation. All you have to do is ask Him!
Thank You, Jesus!
