Twenty-third Sunday after Pentecost – Hebrews 9:24-28

Grace, peace and mercy to you from God our Father and our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

There is always a cost in life. Sometimes the cost is small or almost inconsequential, so small in fact that we almost ignore it. Sometimes the cost is so large, we can’t ignore and so we are forced to deal with the reality of the cost.

Dealing with sin means a heavy price must be paid. In a culture in which sin in minimalised, in which we are told more and more, “it doesn’t really matter,” we can forget that sin costs us our relationship with God. Sooner or later, whether we like it or not, every person needs to deal with the reality of sin in their life and consider what the cost is to them personally. They must ask themselves, “What is the cost of sin?”

Heavenly Father, sanctify us in the truth, your Word is truth. Amen.
