Do you ever wonder what long-lastingÂ impacts rising pricesÂ in the marketplace will have on ourÂ lifestyle? One reporter tried to makeÂ us feel better about soaring gas pricesÂ by informing us that printer ink costsÂ $4,468 per litre, Calvin Klein EternityÂ perfume costs $1,277 per litre, RedÂ Bull drinks cost $10.44 per litre, andÂ Evian water costs $1.59 per litre, soÂ really the price of gas is not so bad!
Flour, lately, has jumped dramaticallyÂ in price. This has driven up the priceÂ of a loaf of bread and a Tim HortonsÂ donut. It seems that no area of our lifeÂ is unaffected, from vacation costs, toÂ food costs, to energy costs.
So while we look around andÂ wonder about our economy, it is aÂ comfort to know that the Gift ofÂ God is FREE! Regardless of changingÂ economic times, Godâ€™s Word tells usÂ that this gift will always be free. â€œTheÂ word of our God shall stand for everâ€Â (Isaiah 40:8).
We could never pay the price forÂ our own sin. The Lord Jesus Christ,Â Godâ€™s only Son, took our penalty.Â He suffered the punishment thatÂ we deserved so that we can go free.Â Not only are we saved from theÂ punishment for our sin, but we alsoÂ have a constant Companion to helpÂ and guide us. We have the promise of aÂ home in Heaven when we die or whenÂ the Lord Jesus returns to gather up HisÂ loved ones. He is coming back. It couldÂ be today! Are you ready?
What wonderful blessings are oursÂ when we are walking with the Lord.Â All this is FREE to us because the LordÂ Jesus paid our debt in full!
