This post is part of the Five Minute Friday blog link-up! Each week Kate Motaung provides a one-word writing prompt for participants to free write for five minutes flat and share their work with the online community. This week’s prompt is COST.


The life of one perfect, sinless Son.

A price the Father that loves us deeply was willing to pay for our salvation (1 Corinthians 6:20).

Yours and mine.


Living a forgiven life and then for eternity in heaven with that perfect, sinless Son.

The cost was high, but He paid the price.

The life of one perfect, sinless Son.

A cost predetermined by the Father that valued both of us that much and more.

God chose to save us by sacrificing His only Son in our place.

The life of one perfect, sinless Son.


It’s already been paid for, so if you haven’t already, please choose to receive it.

That’s our cost.

Receiving Jesus means giving up the old self to make way for the work of the Holy Spirit in you (Colossians 3:8-10). He will change your heart and make you into a new person in Christ. This good work begins as soon as we accept Jesus (Galatians 4:6).

This God and Father who planned eternity with us in mind, He’s already made an investment on our behalf.

You and me and all those coming before and after us.

He is patient and will wait even as our last moments here begin to slip away (2 Peter 3:9). But seek Him soon, Friends, because our days are numbered (Psalm 139:16).

Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them. Psalm 139:16

We don’t know the day or the hour so there is no time to waste.
