As A Ransom
Mark 10:45 (KJB) For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
Do you know that many religions require a man to “pay” some sort of reimbursement to God, but the truth is that genuine salvation of God is finished? There is absolutely nothing left to offer God. Yes, the debt was paid in full through the death of Jesus Christ upon Calvary. God does not require a man to settle his account for it has been stamped “paid in full.”
Jesus Christ offered a ransom and an eternal ministry to work in your life and mine. Not only that but He wiped the sin slate clean for every person who accepts this gift through faith. God does not keep any record of our confessed sin and releases a regenerated man from the grip of sin.
Aptly applying God’s spiritual work induces the softened heart of a man to offer his best to God. Not because he must repay God for His debt but because he understands he has been set free from the burden and guilt of his sin.
