The wages of sin is death, but God sent His very own Son into this world to pay the price. He knew we were unworthy. So the unblemished Lamb, the perfect, sinless Son of God, took our place. Salvation is a gift. We don’t have to earn it. We don’t have to buy it. It is offered freely to all who choose to believe. And with that acceptance comes the avoidance of separation from God. Instead, we are assured of eternal life in His presence. We have a choice: Sin and its shame, or salvation and its freedom. I choose freedom.
