Grace be to you and peace from GOD THE FATHER,
and from OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST,
Who gave himself for our sins,
that HE might deliver us from this evil world,
according to the will of GOD OUR FATHER.
Galatians 1 v 3 & 4
Years ago, King Charles V was loaned a large sum of money by a merchant in Antwerp. The note came due for payment, but the King was bankrupt and unable to pay. The merchant gave a great banquet for the King. When all the guests were seated and before the food was brought in, the merchant had a large platter placed on the table and a fire lit on it. Then, taking the note out of one of his pockets, he held the note in the flames until it was burned to ashes. The King threw his arms around his benefactor and wept. Just so, we have been mortgaged to GOD. The debt was due, but we were unable to pay. Just over two thousand years ago, God invited the world to the Gospel feast, and in the agonies of the cross, God held your sins and mine until every last vestige of our guilt was consumed.
