Salvation is free,
Maturity is costly.
Backsliding is cheap,
but Salvation comes with a guarantee!
You can run away from the LORD with just a fraction of the cost to mature yourself.
But I learned that God still desires those who fell in adversity to be with Him, because they are still children of God.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
