Romans 6:22-23

It was the morning after our wedding day. We entered the beautiful restaurant in the hotel where we had spent the first night of our honeymoon. As we were being seated, there were many sights and scents to tempt us. We saw hot buttered biscuits, bright jellies, crisp bacon, sausage, ham, eggs, grits, fresh fruit, and even a variety of sweet rolls in this southern breakfast. My new husband whispered to me, "Remember our college budget. We canít afford to order much at such an expensive place." So we had toast and jelly with coffee, while we watched others at nearby tables eat their delicious looking meals.

When we went to the cash register to pay the bill, the cashier asked us for our
room number. After we gave it to her, she said, "There will be no charge for your breakfast. It is free with the bridal suite." We still laugh forty-eight years later about the wonderful breakfast we missed because we did not know that the bill had already been paid.

So many people today carry needlessly a heavy weight of sin and guilt. The price for their peace has already been paid. God sent His Son into the world so that all might be saved and be eternally free from the burden of sin.

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You for sending Your only Son to pay the price for our sins and give us the gift of eternal life. Help us to share this message with others.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This is such a beautiful article about the wonderful provision that God has already made for us. I love it when we are able to use our everyday situtations and find spiritual truths in them. Great job. Vickie

Verna, this is an awesome, simplified illustration that all of us can relate to in one way or another. I love your descriptions and easy to follow message. How wonderful that the Lord has already paid the price and even gives us the tips, his daily blessings of love, mercy and grace. Keep up the beautiful heart touching comparisons. I love your writing. God bless, Janice:0)
