A ransom for all - was not testified until Paul proclaimed it, the revelation of the secret, which was kept secret since the world began. Some have
called God’s justification, cheap justification; if it is that easy, if a person can obtain righteousness without doing something, or even trying to
do something in order to gain it, that would be too easy, and that would make it cheap.
That is difficult for people imbued with the pride of life to imagine; it is difficult to accept, because it does not seem fair to the human mind,
especially to the religiously minded. It does not seem quite right that God could consider someone righteous, especially if that person is not
expending the same amount of effort or attention that they are to become righteous by way of their practice.
The fact is Christ became the redeemer of the entire world, when he satisfied the justice of God for the sins of the entire world. The sin issue was
resolved for everyone, but understand, that having a redeemer and accepting the redeemer that we have, and what that redeemer accomplished, are two
God’s justification is absolutely free, but it was certainly not cheap, it came at tremendous cost. Apart from God’s grace, the justification
Paul’s been telling us about would be totally impossible, but then, apart from the price the son of God paid to make it possible, God’s grace
could not offer it.
