Apples of Gold - March 5 |

God did not get a bargain; He didn’t pay equal value, i.e., what I am worth. The great cost at which I was redeemed gives me no cause to have a sense of self-worth but of shame that the consequences of my sin cause Christ to pay such a great price. The shedding of Christ’s blood, with which we were redeemed, was not because of our worth but because of our sin and the demands of God’s justice. So, the greater the price, the worse the sin. To associate this purchase price with the value of an object to God, and to make it the basis for self-worth, is neither biblical nor logical. In fact, it shows the perversion that is caused by the influence of selfist psychology. –TBC
