Maybe I’m getting cynical in my old age, but I struggle to believe the adverts which promise free stuff when you buy something. Every now and again I’m proved wrong… but normally not.
I suppose that it’s my understanding of human nature that has led me to this point. I am always looking for the catch, looking for the trick, looking for the deception.
Have you ever been bitten by a ‘free’ deal?
It’s an altogether different thing when it comes to God. Not only is God worthy of our trust, God is also not hiding anything. The bible tells us that he gave his only son, that’s how much he opened himself out.
There are a lot of free things in God's economy. Things like grace, salvation, life, love, mercy…. so many things that God gives to us liberally. All of this with no deception or guile, all of this so that we might walk deeper into a relationship with him.
What a great God we have!
