Salvation for $19.95

by Richard Mansel, managing editor
nosale33.jpgHawkers on television continually offer THE products that will revolutionize the world. For less than $20, the world can be ours!
Somewhere at this moment, a shady individual is prowling a dingy street corner selling bags of THE answer to their customer’s problems. Others are looking in bottles and beds for the same answer.
The world does not have anything but guesses, failures and deceptive victories. The world mistakes physical success for spiritual success and fools people into thinking they have possession of the antidote they seek.
Christ came, bringing the gospel message, and many ignored him (Isaiah 53:3). They thought he was blaspheming and crazy. They had their own neat answers, wrapped in bows.
Christ is the only answer man will ever have and Scripture is very clear on this matter (John 14:6). Jesus is the Lamb, who is the only one able to solve the problem of sin (Revelation 5:4-5).
“And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation” (Revelation 5:9, NKJV).
We cannot find an infomercial where we can buy this Answer for $19.95. No one sells it in stores nor is it available on the black market.
When we gather around the Lord’s Table, we need to realize the extraordinary honor that we have to celebrate that we have found the real answer, the one that saves humanity. We have been washed in the blood of the Lamb and nothing could be better (1 John 1:7; Revelation 12:11)
Why would we return this Answer for a refund? Where else would we go to find it? (John 6:68). Let us remain in Christ and partake of the body and blood of Christ in complete confidence.
