I’m a couponing newbie. I don’t know much about getting the most value from coupons. In fact, several weeks ago, I bought almost $100 in groceries and saved only two dollars and some change. I have a feeling that I’ll be learning soon enough—my husband and I are adopting a sibling group of five.
I do know one thing about coupons: They are redeemable—but only if I take specific steps. When I find something I want, I can take the coupon into a grocery store within a specific time frame and redeem it for the specific item.
Couponing is a lot like salvation.
Jesus alone was able to take the specific steps needed to redeem us—to buy back our souls from the bondage of sin and death. He died on the cross more than 2,000 years ago because He loved us so much, He wanted us to spend eternity with Him.
Jesus redeemed us. He exchanged His blood for our souls.
You can’t beat that deal!
O my soul, bless God, don’t forget a single blessing! He forgives your sins – every one. He heals your diseases – every one. He redeems you from hell – saves your life! He crowns you with love and mercy – a paradise crown. (Psalm 103:2-4, The Message)
