The reason salvation is so easy to obtain is that it cost God so much. The Cross was the place where God and sinful man merged with a tremendous collision and where the way to life was opened. But all the cost and pain of the collision was absorbed by the heart of God. – Chambers
I love this quote! I’m a visual person and this paragraph always makes me think of a the dramatic ending of a superhero movie where the hero sacrifices his life for others.
Of course, the Cross was no movie and Jesus did lay His life down to save us. The Father’s heart was revealed in this plan of redemption…this bringing us back home.
How we can so easily forget the great price You paid for us!!!
May we never forget all it cost You to save us from our sin. For those who have forgotten, remind them. Forgive me Lord for forgetting and neglecting the gift of salvation you’ve given. Shake us out of the doldrums where we’ve been lulled to sleep by the shiney things of this world that distract and temp us away from the best You have for us. Speak loudly to those who think they know more than You with high sounding philosophical arguments but yet speak no good thing. Help us to love and live as Your precious Son did. In Jesus’ name amen.
