Got this letter in the mail yesterday from Nationwide insurance as a solicitation.
All I could think when I saw the envelope is that just over 2000 years ago, God, too, sent out a letter to all of humanity that we have been “Pre-Forgiven” if we just accept the gift of Salvation.
When I opened the letter to read what it said, the first part of the letter read as such,
Life comes at your Fast. But when you come to Nationwide Insurance, you can be forgiven before anything even happens. (If only all of life were like that.)
Wow, see, Life IS like that! We’re all sinners. The penalty for sinning is death (Romans 6:23). John 3:16 tells us of how God loved the world so much that He have His only son that whoever believes on Him will not perish, but have life everlasting! Colossians 1 tells us that as believers, were are rescued from the dominion of darkness, and are part of the kingdom of the Son, in whom we have redemption through the blood of Christ and forgiveness of sins!
So, 2000 years ago on the cross, my sins were forgiven before I was even born. Now, that is accident forgiveness I can live with!
