If you were to a give a gift to a very special person, what would you pay to give that greatest gift to someone beloved? Would you pay a million dollars? What would be too costly? Would you pay your life?
Believe it or not someone (Jesus Christ) has paid the price of his life to give to all of God’s beloved creation (And that includes you!) new life in Christ.
Accepting the gift does require something however. It requires us to accept the gift in faith and believe that someone loves you enough that they would sacrifice their life for you. It requires also that we allow that abundant grace of God to change us…change us to share the love that we receive from the one what has given us the greatest gift—his life so that we might have abundant life.
May we live in this abundant love and may we share that abundant love.
