” Christ paid the price to free us from the curse that the laws in Moses’ Teachings bring by becoming cursed instead of us. Scripture says, “Everyone who is hung on a tree is cursed.”
~ Galatians 3:13
Often times we hear some Christians and even preachers make certain comments like “you must pay the price.” As sincere and well-intentioned they are, it doesn’t make what they say right. The only thing that has held humanity bound from manifesting like God and living the way God has destined us to live was is sin! The law defined sin and showed us that the result of sin is death. The law went further to declare that the soul that sin shall die. Prior to the salvation mission of Jesus, we were all dead and alienated from God. Although the Jews had the law, they couldn’t keep it and as long as the Gentiles never had the law, they were without God. Somehow both Gentiles and Jews all stood condemned.
1. Jesus took the curse due for us upon Himself.
2. Jesus paid the price to free us.
3. To be free means to be reconciled back to God.
Although the wages of sin is death the Bible also points out that the gift of God is life (Romans 6:23) and Jesus is that life God offered to us! (John 14:6) and it is Jesus that is our heritage! There is no inheritance or anointing outside Jesus and therefore there is no price left to be paid again! While we should pray and fast, it is not a price to be paid for God’s anointing or even forgiveness. We have been forgiven, saved and set free! Prayers, studying and fasting is a devotional activity.
POINT TO NOTE
If you believe there is a price you need to pay, you are saying that Jesus didn’t pay all the price and you are saying that Jesus lied when He said: “it is finished.” God doesn’t require anymore sacrifice from you to be able to manifest the anointing with which you have been anointing. Just believe (John 3:16) and walk in that might! Abraham didn’t buy God’s favour with any kind of sacrifice, He just believed! Can you believe?
“Jesus paid the price for me in full and there isn’t any payment voucher left! I, therefore, walk in the fullness of what Christ has done. I am resting on the finished works of Christ.”
Precious Father, thank you for saving me, for ensuring that there was nothing left for me to do which I cannot do. I
