Is Redemption Spiritual Welfare?


Is it something for nothing, a handout[1], the dole?


The scriptures tell us it is free[2] and open to all[3], its effects immediate[4].

But the effort expended by the Redeemer was hardly free; it was infinite and eternal[5].

Should not our part be commensurate? Is it? Where’s the parity?


How can redemption be free yet infinitely expensive?


For answers, choose from the following scriptures:
