Romans 8:32 – He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? [NKJV]
The word freely caught my attention as I read this verse. You did not pay God anything. In fact, you were not even around back when this transaction took place. Even so, He did not hesitate to deliver Jesus over to be murdered for you.
Peter wrote, “We have everything we need to live a life that pleases God. It was all given to us by God’s own power” (2 Peter 1:3, CEV). Because of Christ, right now you have everything you need to live the life the Father intended for you to have.
Along with Jesus, God has given you freedom to overcome addiction, peace to endure any storm, love to reconcile every relationship, joy to combat depression, healing for your body, victory over sin, and grace to strengthen you in all circumstances.
In Christ, you got the luxury package—nothing left out and all expenses paid. As Heidi says, “He’s not God of this or that; He is God of this and that.”
