It’s a “prepay” world. Pay at the pump. Prepay for your “minutes”. Not a lot of trust or credit available in this world we live in.
God’s not like that…at all. He gives everything to us…in advance. In spite of the fact that we can never even hope to “repay” his “prepay”.
“8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.”Romans 5:8 (nlt)
That’s why as followers of Jesus…as recipients of his “prepaid” forgiveness and mercy…our job on earth is to pass it on. To give to (and serve) others who can’t possibly “prepay”. Forgiveness. Mercy. A Helping hand. (a place they can be accepted…like actionchurch) Love. etc. No strings attached.
That about covers it…
