Please read Ephesians 2:1-10
Palmira Valenzuela lives in Nuevo Leon, Mexico. One of the benefits of her employment as a professor at a public university is the free tuition for children of employees. Palmira's daughter decided to enroll at this university and take advantage of the scholarship. They reviewed the administrative processes and documentation needed to register online for the coming year. As they entered their personal data, there was also a required field in the system to post the registration fee. At this point, a message appeared in the center of their screen: PAID. They owed nothing; her daughter could look forward to the semester without incurring debt.
In the same way, when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, our slate is wiped clean. The sacrifice Christ made for us on the cross makes it possible for us to have eternal life. By faith, we are beneficiaries of the fullness of God's mercy. We can rest secure in the knowledge that the message on our slate will read: PAID.
Prayer: Faithful God, great is your mercy and greater still your love for us - a love so great that your Son died on the cross to pay for our sins and grant us eternal life. Thank you, Lord! Amen.
