I love that God covered all bases. He used the old woman and the young, the rural area and a neighborhood in Jerusalem. One totally in society with a husband who was a priest. The virgin and the married. The less honored of society; women!
He is saying, “Friend, this is for you. Your age doesn’t matter. Your location makes no difference. I don’t care who you are or where you live. Your only necessary requirement is to believe in the Lord God and his son, Jesus who died for you!
Your faith standard is only Christ. You can’t do enough or be enough to pay for your sin, that’s why I sent my son to die on your behalf. Will you accept my free forever offer and choose life?
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)
All are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. (Romans 3:24)
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1)
Freely you have received; freely give. (Matthew 10:8)
So, I ask you again… Will you accept God’s free forever offer and choose life? Will you?
