But just because grace is free does not mean that it is cheap.
Grace may not cost you and me anything, but it cost Jesus His life. Jesus came to earth over two thousand years ago. As God in human flesh, He lived the perfect life and then died on a cross to pay the price for our sin.
We deserved to hang on that cross, not Jesus. It was our sin that separated us from a holy and righteous God, our sin that made us guilty and deserving of spending eternity in hell.
But because Jesus loves you and me so much, He had mercy on us and took the death sentence upon Himself that we so rightly deserved. That’s grace.
And because of God’s grace there is hope both for today and the rest of eternity.
