The best things in life are free…
We’ve all heard it. Most of us accept this phrase as truth. I was one of those people.
But not anymore.
Free means that it doesn’t cost anything. And the best thing in my life is my salvation. Which cost my Savior everything.
People generally use this saying in reference to money. Like the popular thought that says, Can’t buy me love.
Again, yes you can. In fact, God did buy our love when He sent His son, Jesus, to die on the cross for us.
“Christ bought us with His blood and made us free…” – Galatians 3:13
When we are tempted to forget just how high a price Jesus paid on our behalf, we lose sight of what love really means.
It’s not conditional. It isn’t always pretty. In fact, it’s usually messy.
Love costs EVERYTHING.
