Salvation is Free, But It Is Not Cheap

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. (1 Peter 1:3)

  • We are all vulnerable to fantastic offers.
  • They pay us nothing but trouble.
  • We are offered false hope that ends in dashed dreams.
  • There is one offer, however, that is genuine, though fantastic beyond belief.
  • It is the offer God makes to us.
  • It is salvation through faith in Jesus’ finished work on the cross: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31).
  • It is an offer that cost Him greatly.
  • And we get the benefits.
  • The book of Romans tells us, “He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification”.
  • By saying yes to salvation, we can have hope, peace, forgiveness, incomparable riches, and redemption.
  • This is the real deal.
  • And Jesus’ death and resurrection guarantees it.
  • Our salvation was infinitely costly to God.
  • But it is absolutely free to us.
  • It is a fantastic offer.
  • Come and get it.
