Perhaps we ask ourselves, how much does it cost to enter the kingdom of God? The answer is free! It is because Jesus Christ already paid the price for us by His death. "All of us have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. But, God treats us much better than we deserve, and because of Christ Jesus, he freely accepts us and sets us free from our sins. (Rom. 3:23–24, CEV). When we acknowledge our spiritual need and accept by faith God’s forgiveness for our sins, we have a new and everlasting life in Him.
What does it really mean that we have fallen short of God's glory? The glory of God is the outward manifestation of God’s character, which, at the center, is His holiness and love. In God’s plan of redemption, human beings are to share in this glory. Those who respond to Christ’s offer of salvation begin a process of reflecting God’s character (2 Cor. 3:18).
You can have a new life today because, by His death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead, Jesus already Paid the Price! Admit that you are a sinner and ask for forgiveness in His mighty throne. You will just simply humble yourselves before the Lord and He will lift You up!
