Let’s stop for a moment and take note. Notice here, “But by His own blood” there was a time in the past where the sacrifice of the blood of bulls and of goats were offered unto God once a year as payment for the sins of the people. So now it may be asked, “Why does a loving God require that an offering of blood be made to pay for the sins that people have committed?” Let me explain it like this, there is a price to be paid for the wages of sin. That price is death, this is demanded by all of the kingdom of Satan as payment for us to be free from his tyranny, as we read, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
So now, in the same way we can see that a local store owner or shop owner requires payment for services rendered or products purchased and this is not in any way unreasonable, so too, it is not unreasonable that our redemption should require a payment when we understand that sin is costly. Sin is not free and neither is our redemption or payment for it. There are wages for sin! Now that we are understanding this we must ask, “How shall we ever be able to pay for all the sin that we have committed?” O sure there would be some who are under the strong delusion that they have never committed any sin, this is a lie, all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, as we read, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 so let none us think that we do not sin, nor have we never committed sin, this is a lie, and to lie is a sin! Do we ask, why does this store owner or shop owner charge us this fee if we should shop there? Of course not, because we understand that it was not free for them. They of course have to earn a living and pay their bills, so it is a given understanding that they will charge us this fee. Now the really awesome difference between these local purchases and the purchasing of our salvation and redemption is, the local purchases are not paid for by the owner and are not free, whereas our salvation and redemption has already been paid for by Jesus, and is therefore free to any who choose to receive it. Heaven is free for all who believe in Jesus, the cost of heaven has already been paid for through the shed blood and sacrifice of Jesus Christ, it is the gift of God!
