FORGIVENESS IS FREE – BUT NOT CHEAP.

FORGIVENESS IS FREE – BUT NOT CHEAP.

Your sins have earned the penalty of death. Christ paid that price for you through His death. Salvation is not cheap — the Son of God gave up all things for you. Forgiveness is free. God gives you this salvation, which Christ earned, for free. Solus Christus. Through Christ alone.

Our life in Christ reflects this truth. Forgiveness is free. You are forgiven in Christ. This is true for you every moment of every day because of God’s promise in your Baptism. We are called to sacrifice everything to live our lives according to God’s will because of His love for us (Rom. 12:1). We are called to trust only in Christ: “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me” (Luke 9:23).
