“.….. darkness fell across the whole land…..” Luke 23:44 (NLT)
Father, yesterday was Black Friday and there were supper sales all over the place, people standing in line for hours to make the best buy. My heart and mind goes back to the original Black Friday, 2000 years ago, when the best buy of all time was purchased at an infinite price.
The Apostle Peter reminds us: “For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And the ransom he paid was not mere gold or silver. 19 It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God.” 1 Peter 1:18-19 (NLT)
Father, in the darkness on that day so long ago Your Son paid the price of the greatest gift ever offered to the human race. Colossians 1:13-14 (NLT) says it so well: “….he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins."
Indeed Father, that was the best buy ever and all who trust in Jesus for their salvation will be eternally grateful.
