You are an original… worth dying for.

10In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.  1 John 4:10

This week a new record was set for the most expensive artwork sold at an auction. Tuesday night a 1969 painting by Francis Bacon, “Three Studies of Lucian Freud” sold for 142.4 million. That’s a lot of money for an original!

That’s not spare change! Well to me its not.

You are an original. And to God you are worth dying for. He spared no cost. He sent his Son as the payment of our sins. Who knew our sin could cost such much? They cost a lot because of the immense value God puts on us. He loves us.

“In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”
