The Price Has Been Paid

What an Awesome price, the Son of God.  Who can fathom it, not me.  I am trying to understand how it can be that He would sacrifice His Son for me.

Ephesians 5:2  "And walk in love as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma."

SC 15  "The price paid for our redemption, the infinite sacrifice of our heavenly Father in giving His Son to die for us, should give us exalted conceptions of what we may become through Christ.  As the inspired apostle John beheld the height, the depth, the breadth of the Father's love toward the perishing race, he was filled with adoration and reverence; and failing to find suitable language in which to express the greatness and tenderness of this love, he called upon the world to behold it.  "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God." 1 John 3:1.  What a value this places upon man!  Through transgression the sons of man become subjects of Satan.  Through faith in the atoning sacrifice of Christ the sons of Adam may become the sons of God.  By assuming human nature, Christ elevates humanity.  Fallen men are placed where, through connection with Christ, they may indeed become worthy of the name 'sons of God'"

Have you thought yourself worthless, think that way no longer.  It cost the life of the Son of God to elevate you to be a son or daughter of God.  God is our Father indeed and we can be so proud to have a Father that is King of the universe, we should tell everyone how valuable they are in the sight of God.  This is the theme for the most profound meditation!  The matchless love of God for a world that did not love Him.
