DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Price of Our Salvation, Cost of Our Sin
Isa. 53: 1-12
Long before we were born, God had put in place a plan for our salvation. We were tainted with sin from birth by our association with Adam and Eve, and as a result we were removed from God’s perfect plan. However, because of the mercies of God, we were given another chance to share in the glory originally intended for mankind at creation. Isaiah’s prophecy speaks of the cost of this chance given to us. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, would have to be sacrificed—put in prison, beaten, wounded, crucified and then buried with the wicked in order for us to be saved. God did not deem this a price too high for our salvation. We should lead our lives free from sin as we keep the heavy price paid for our salvation constantly on our minds.
Point of Emphasis: Our salvation is important to God.
Prayer Point: The sacrifice of Jesus Christ will not be in vain over my life.
