How You Can Avoid Going Bankrupt Spiritually
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23).
With the economy the way it is today, so many people are experiencing the horror of financial bankruptcy. In fact, I don’t know that I've ever met so many people who have filed for bankruptcy as I've met over the past few years.
But there’s something that’s worse than financial bankruptcy, and that’s spiritual bankruptcy. That’s because the problem we have spiritually can’t be fixed in the court of law. We don’t have a system where some official can dissolve your debts. No, the problem of spiritual debt is much, much worse.
So what do we do? We’re in debt over our heads and we’re drowning. Well, more powerful than any creditor is the cross of Christ. Jesus saw the debt you owed because of your sin, paid it Himself through His death, and fills your account by giving you eternal life!
Yes, spiritual bankruptcy is detrimental, but the remedy—eternal life through faith in Jesus’ death and resurrection—is wonderful. So thank God today for sending Jesus to take your debt away, and giving you the incredible gift of eternal life!
Solve the problem of spiritual bankruptcy by trusting in Jesus to pay your debt and give you eternal life!
