Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
John 14:6

Somebody Pays

A drunk driver runs into the car of a man headed home from work and seriously injures the man. The man is rushed to the hospital where he suffers weeks of pain and treatments. The drunk man is not seriously injured (naturally!) and is financially flat (always!) but the man who was injured has insurance so after he pays his part the insurance company pays the rest. But somebody pays!
The insurance company is not magnanimous nor does money miraculous appear in its coffers. The premium of the injured man (hopefully supplemented by the company that employs him) is used to pay the insurance company so the insurance company can pay the hospital. But somebody pays!
The man’s salary to pay his premium and his company benefits come from the sales or services of the company which are purchased by customers. The man or the company does not magically have money. They can only pay if somebody pays!
The wages of sin is death (Rom 6:23). That is an irrevocable immutable law of God. Sin is anarchy against God and He cannot ignore it or overlook it because to do so would allow darkness to overrule light. When someone sins somebody must pay!
All have sinned and come short of the glory of God so everyone meets God with a debt they cannot afford to pay. But Somebody (Jesus Christ) paid- Glory!
