Avoiding the Pit
Sometimes it feels like our life is in the pits, or that our lives have been turned upside down.
There is one pit, though, that every person is headed for except for the grace and provision of God. Some of the most marvelous verses of Scripture are found in Psalm 49:6-9. These verses point us to the one and only way to avoid the pit for eternity.
Those who trust in their wealth and boast in the multitude of their riches, none of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him—for the redemption of their souls is costly, and it shall cease forever—that he should continue to live eternally, and not see the Pit.
These are powerful words for our day and age. It is so easy for many to believe that their wealth, their power, and their goodness will someday be enough to save them.
But the only way to have eternal life and not see the pit of eternal destruction is to realize that you can do nothing and pay no amount to redeem your own soul. Why? Because the price of your soul is very costly—more than you could ever pay.
The purchase price was the shed blood of the Son of God upon Calvary’s cross. Only through embracing His sacrifice can your soul be ransomed. No good works can do it. No personal sacrifice can do it. The price has been paid.
I trust you have accepted God’s gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. If so, praise Him today for rescuing you from the pit of hell and for paying that high price for you.
