It’s something that we skim over because we “don’t have time” to read it: the fine print. I learned this mid-excitement last night while looking to book a flight in September for a convention for Nathan and I to go to.
Last August, due to some complications with a flight we were on, we scored a free flight voucher from Southwest. I had almost forgotten about it until last night, when I thought “We could use this for Nathan’s part of the flight!!” Thankfully we had stored it in a safe place, and I was giddy as ever to find out it wasn’t expiring until this August, so I could use it now and get his ticket almost for free. I entered everything in, hit enter…and saw that nothing was taken off from the original price!! What did I do wrong?!?!
It was all in the fine print: must use ticket voucher AND book flight before expiration date.
So even though it’s June, the flight we were trying to book was for September, only a month after the expiration date for the voucher. Ugggghhhh!!! Now we’ve got to figure out what flight we want to take before the end of August – we don’t want that to go to waste!
Isn’t it great that Christ’s love, His grace, His mercy doesn’t come with a fine print? There’s nowhere in His word that reads, “You are forgiven….if you tell 40 people about me by 2018 and read your Bible at least 3 times a day, every day, for 3 years.” There is no fine print to the extent of God’s love. Nowhere is it written, “I’ll love you ONLY if you talk to me daily and give me 75% of your income.”
There is no fine print, no restrictions to our Father God, and there is nothing that can tear us from Him. In fact, in Romans 8:35-37 it says
Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
His love never changes, never goes old, and never expires for us…even when we may forget about Him or ignore His voice.
