The Greatest Price Paid.....How much would you pay ?

Good day once again all……I hope everyone is having a good weekend. I know that I am even though the hip is pretty sore but I know that God has this all in His hands. The price one pays when they slide through oil. Speaking of prices paid that is the topic for today’s blog…..price…..how much would you give or how much would you pay for something……including your life? I want you to stop a moment and think of the most expensive item you bought just for yourself. Now this does not include things such as houses, cars, or the things we have to truly have to live. I am talking about something that would truly be considered a luxury in today’s society, for example….a laptop, a kindle, or even say an iPod.  How much would you be willing to put forth to purchase something? Think about that as you continue to read the blog.

          A penny; a dime; a nickel; a quarter; a dollar; five dollars; ten dollars; one hundred; thousand…..monetary figures that many of us tend to pay for items that we feel we need or have to have in order to live. Let me back up just a moment and say the prices we pay for things such as a house, a car, food, utilities, gas, and the daily essentials, I am not including  in this. What I am including however are things such as the money we pay out for say a laptop, an iPod, an Xbox, and all the things that we have as luxuries in life. The price that we all pay for this can be extreme, but the highest price that has ever been paid came when Jesus Christ died on the cross for us. For without His death we would not be able to live because for those of us who have accepted Him, we also died upon that cross so that we could live. In the second chapter of Galatians we are told:


           20 - I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but          

                Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith

                 in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.


You can see that Christ paid the greatest price ever when He took the sins of us all and bored each and every one of them upon the cross. To me, I see a stamp on my sins that says paid in full. For me that is an amazing feeling to know that someone loved me so much that they took  the beatings, the torture, the nails, the thorns, and finally the heaviness of that wooden cross so that I can live. For it was because of Christ dying and then raising again that all the sins of my past have been wiped away and  I was crucified…..I died when He died, but yet because of accepting Him in my life, I can live because He lives within me.

We all pay prices for the things we need or want. There is a set price for all we have but to me the greatest price ever given was that of when Christ was crucified for something I did. So, let me ask you this…..you are willing to pay prices for things that are a luxury to live BUT would you have been brave enough to pay that ultimate…..the greatest price, for someone else’s wrong doings ? I know I wouldn’t have but I can say that I am so grateful and I am humbled to God for sending Christ to do just that….paying a great price for me.

Remember….if you want a copy of the book or you are interested in having me speak to your church, school, group, or organization that you can find all the information on the front of this webpage.

God Bless and Keep you-

In Christ-

Very well written! No, I know I would not be able to carry all that Christ did for my sins. This is a great thing to ponder! And I think Jesus that he was willing to pay every price for my sins that he paid!
