Sometimes new believers may feel that God has a payment plan; that they have to do good deeds as a form of payment for His mercy. We need to reassure them (and maybe sometimes ourselves) that God doesn’t do good things for us to buy our love. There isn’t a payment plan, because Jesus paid for everything in full. Our sin debt was paid for on the cross once and for all! Ephesians 1:6-7 teaches us: “To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;” Let’s remember to thank him today for the payment in advance he made for us. God bless you!
