What does all this mean? Even though the Gentiles were not trying to follow God’s standards, they were made right with God. And it was by faith that this took place. But the people of Israel, who tried so hard to get right with God by keeping the law, never succeeded. Why not? Because they were trying to get right with God by keeping the law instead of by trusting in him. They stumbled over the great rock in their path.
Romans 9:30-32 NLT
God is overflowing in grace and mercy and love. He offers it to us. Why do we find it so hard to accept?
We are jaded. We are taught that nothing in life is free. And this is true of this world. God’s grace and mercy that leads to salvation wasn’t free. There was a price that had to be paid.
Jesus paid it.
He paid the price over 2,000 years ago so you wouldn’t have to.
The gift of salvation is free …now. We simply have to accept it from the One who purchased it for us.
