The great cost

Romans 5:8 (ESV)
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

I read about how the "King of Abyssinia once took a British subject named Cameron prisoner and incarcerated him in the high fortress of Magdala. No cause was stated for his confinement. When Great Britain found out, she demanded an immediate release of her citizen. King Theodore refused."

According to the story, within days Great Britain sent several thousand soldiers by ship to Magdala. After marching across unfriendly country for many miles, they attacked the fortress and rescued that one British subject. "The expedition took several months and cost the English government twenty-five million dollars. The entire resources of the government were made available in the rescue of only one citizen."

Just think if the government of Great Britain was willing to spend twenty-five million dollars to save one of it's citizens, how much more does God want to save you!

Dear Lord, we thank You for the price You paid to save each and every one of us. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
