Works for Free
Here’s what he said about himself:One last reason (among many more) that Jesus is not worth $22.5 million annually: he can’t be bought. For any amount. If you try to put a payable value on his worth, you insult him. He works for free, or not at all. He doesn’t need a salary. He owns everything. So he has no needs.
The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. (Mark 10:45)
He is not for sale. You can’t get his service as CEO by agreeing to work around the clock for him or by offering him $22.5 million annually. His infinite value and his unique skillset are free. He calls it grace. Either you see it and treasure it above everything (faith). Or you don’t (unbelief).
So, yes, Ms. Disney: “Jesus Christ himself isn’t worth 500 times his median workers’ pay.” First, because his value as the God-man, and the uniqueness of his skillset, are worth infinitely more than $22.5 million. And second, because his services are free. Free for everyone who will have him as their greatest treasure.
You got that right. I hope.
