In View of God's Mercy

This 1-minute devotion reminds us of some wonderful truths about God's love and mercy.

Several years ago, an error on a department store's online site allowed customers to buy a $600 item for less than $9!  

Imagine the shock and delight at finding such a deal and paying less than 2% of the original price. It was almost like "legal robbery."

When I read about this I couldn't help but think of the analogy to salvation.  It's like getting something priceless and undeserved absolutely free. 

Free for us...but costly for our Lord: 

He didn't buy us "with perishable things such as silver and gold" (1 Peter 1:18). He purchased us with His blood (1 Peter 1:19Acts 20:28). "Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us" (Galatians 3:13).

So let's remember this important truth:

"God bought you with a high price," so don’t be enslaved by the world (1 Corinthians 6:20).

"Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship." Romans 12:1 

This 1-minute devotion reminds us of some wonderful truths about God's love and mercy.
