You Came at a High Price

If I perish, I perish.
  —Esther 4:16

In a Commencement address at Stanford University, Steve Jobs said, “No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there.” He was right. We want to go to heaven, but we delay the trip in every way possible as long as possible, because we don’t want to die to get there.

Queen Esther didn’t want to die. But she put her life on the line to avert the threatened annihilation of the Jews. “I will go to the king, even though it is against the law,” she said. “And if I perish, I perish.”

Jesus wanted to return to heaven, but dreaded dying to get there. And he so much wanted you there that he didn’t think twice about dying to get you there.

Your worth is measured by the price
Jesus paid to have you with him forever.
