Pastor Bill's Reflections
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. -Ephesians 1:7
Hope and Peace to you all!
READ: Ephesians 1:3-14
"There are some things money can't buy-but these days, not many" according to Michael Sandel, author of What Money Can't Buy. A person can buy a prison cell upgrade for $90 a night, the right to shoot an endangered black rhino for $250,000, and your doctor's cell phone number for $1,500. It seems that "almost everything is up for sale."
But one thing money can't buy is redemption-freedom from the stranglehold of sin. When the apostle Paul began writing about the rich nature of God's plan of salvation through Jesus, his heart erupted in praise: "In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us" (Eph. 1:7-8).
During March we continue our 40 day Lenten journey together toward Holy Week and the cross. Jesus' death on the cross was the high cost of delivering us from sin. And only He could pay that price because He was the perfect Son of God. The natural response to such free but costly grace is spontaneous praise from our hearts and commitment to the God who bought us through Jesus (1:13-14). Praise to our loving God-He has come to set us free!
What amazing love God has for us, that He gave His only Son who willingly died in our place. It seems too good to be true. God's generosity is immeasurable. He paid the price for the forgiveness of our sins and purchased our salvation (Eph. 1:7). "All praise to God!" (v. 3).
