Isaiah 52:3

"For this is what the Lord says: 'You were sold for nothing, and without money you will be redeemed." NIV

"For thus saith the Lord, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; ye shall be redeemed without money." KJV

We did not have to do anything to be born into sin. It did not cost us anything to do what just comes natural to us. But, the penalty for that is eternal darkness. It didn't cost us anything to be forgiven and made pure as God's children. We didn't even deserve it. It cost God His only Son. It cost Jesus Christ everything.

Heavenly Father, we are humbly amazed at the great plan of redemption You planned and carried out through Jesus Christ. We were carried off into captivity by our own choice, but redeemed by His blood. Help us to always live according to this wonderful plan of redemption that all the riches in the world could never buy. In Jesus' name, Amen.
