A BARGAIN

   Posted by: pastordiehl   in Uncategorized

The owner of a Denver restaurant reported, “I first tried to sell buffalo tongue as an hors d’oeuvre at $1.75 and had no takers. So I priced it at $6.75, set a limit of two to a customer, and sold out every night.”

Why are people so desirable of expensive or limited things? Why do we think that because something costs more it has a greater value? The above true example shows us that people do think that way.

But, if we make salvation a free gift, does it lose its value? Why is it people think we must somehow “earn” that salvation by doing some work or disciplining our behavior?

The truth is, salvation isn’t free at all. Jesus paid the hefty bill himself by shedding His blood on the cross. Its free to us, but it cost Him dearly. That’s why we change our lives…to live for Him who died for us.

In most cases, you get what you pay for, buffalo tongue notwithstanding. But in the unique case of our salvation, we get what HE paid for. “He saves me now and all the time. I’m resting in the Crucified!” – F.A. Blackmer
