Free

This is love: not that we loved God, but, that he loved us and sent His son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 1 John 4:10 NIV

Often, I browse on Buy, Trade, Sell sites and there are several items listed as “free”. While the offer may seem generous, the items usually are worn and have irreparable damage. The thought would often cross my mind, as to who would be so desperate to desire damaged goods. Then I learned about the concept of repurposing; the recipient of the free item has a vision for transformation.

The desire to take what appears to be damaged beyond repair is exactly what Jesus did for us. He knew that we would be tattered and broken from sin. However, He had a purpose that would transform us from our damaged state into the newness of life. By His death, we are entitled to salvation-the only free gift that all can receive.

Thank you God for giving your Son that we may be transformed by accepting your free gift of salvation.
