No Charge | Showers’ Blessing PicSpire | Jacqui Showers

Gospel artist Shirley Caesar sings a song entitled, “No Charge.” She sings about a young boy who has given his mother a list of things he has done. Beside each chore is a cost. The mother meditatively reads the list.

When she is finished she begins to write her own list. She writes down how she carried him for nine months. She goes on to write how she stayed up when he was sick. As she lists all she had done, after each one she puts no charge. At the end of the song she simply states “When you add it all up the full cost of real love is no charge.”

Oftentimes hearing the song, it causes me to think about my own mother’s sacrifices. I think about how difficult it must have been to birth and raise 10 children, while juggling their idiosyncrasies, habits, likes and dislikes to make sure they succeed. I think about the sacrifices she made so we would have, when she didn’t. As a single parent, it all falls on you. There is no one there to help carry the load. Interestingly enough, when it is all said and done each of us walked away with our own perception of our upbringing and her maternal practices.

Relationships are critical to our existence. Without them where would be. The most crucial ones are those between a parent and a child. From infancy and well into adulthood, we look to our parents for guidance and direction. We may or may not always adhere to those instructions, but we look to them to be there, regardless of our actions or how insensitive we may be about their sacrifices.

Then one day we have an epiphany that make us re-evaluate our parents. We realize what they did is priceless. There is absolutely no amount of money in this world to repay them. We can never truly comprehend the breadth and depth of those sacrifices.

More than 2000 years ago, Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb, paid a heavy price for each of us. He was beaten beyond recognition, nailed to a cross and hung as a spectacle. Although none of us were alive, the cries of the people that went forth continue to reverberate to crucify him. Our very breath and life is tied to the cross and His sacrifice.

Our society seeks to silence Him as they did in that hour. Yet the blood of the Lamb continues to cry out. Those of us who have placed his blood on the spiritual doorposts and lintels of our lives, experience the benefits of His sacrifice every day. We are no longer in bondage to the strongholds that prevent us from walking in absolute victory; because we have experienced a spiritual epiphany that propels us to unparalleled success. We unequivocally know that the power of His blood sets us free from the deathly limitations of this world.

The breadth and depth of the sacrifice is unquantifiable, yet we are qualified solely by His grace, mercy and and His sacrifice. It is the empowering presence of God that causes every death situation to pass over us. Daily we overcome by His blood and our words. Faith in His blood is the healing force that transforms our minds to live victoriously.

“What does all this cost?” No Charge!
