I was driving through Ohio today, and I saw a church with one of those changeable church signs out front. It read, “Let me be worthy of the price He paid.”
This little prayer refers to the price of our sins, that Jesus paid for through dying on the cross. Now most people might not find that funny, but I did. Because here’s the thing: it would take an awful lot of sin to be worth Christ having to die for it. Thus in effect, the sign is praying for enough sinning to match the value of Jesus’ death.
As my Grandpa would say, “I want you to know that if I have offended you, sir, I wish to thank you.”
