Because of the choice of rebelliousness, humankind relinquished it’s authority in the earth, and became beggars wandering in weakness and blindness. But God, love that holy conjunction, looking beyond our faults to our needs, sent us a special delivery to extricate us from bondage with no payment required.
That special delivery package arrived in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ imparting, to all who will receive Him, power to become sons and daughters of God. This special delivery was not a meager or paltry gift as we discover from John 1:16, ” And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace”; meaning He heaped gifts on top of gifts for us.
All we need do is receive His special favor. We can not work for His favor, earn or pay for it in any way. Romans 8:32, declares, ” He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not freely give us all things”.
Your name was on that special delivery spiritual blessing secured for you in the heavens. You are rich with His riches, full with His fullness, and satisfied with His presence and power within you. He asks only you receive that special life of blessing. No payment is required.
