Jesus Christ Paid Your Debt!

Description

Hard work, discipline, and tough decisions will not remove the debt of our sin. Our only hope is the mercy of God, which is delivered to us through forgiveness.

Debt is a big problem in America. I know. It has plagued me most of my adult life.

For many, the struggle gets overwhelming. No matter what they do, the debt never goes away. Every month, the mountain of bills reminds them of the financial mess they are in.

As to financial debt, there is a way out. There is something you can and should do. Cut up your credit cards. Develop a budget. Slash your lifestyle. Use every dime you can squeeze out of your budget to pay off what you owe. Commit to the plan, and in time the debt is gone. Financial freedom is yours.

It’s a totally different story when it comes to sin. There is nothing you can do to get out from under this heavy burden. Hard work, discipline and tough decisions will not remove this debt. There is not enough money in the world or enough good deeds to pay it off. Our efforts don’t even put a dent in what we owe. The sins and the guilt and the shame keep piling up.

Our only hope of release is the mercy of God. That mercy is delivered to us through forgiveness.

Truthfully, answer this question: When you say that your sins have been forgiven, what does that mean to you? Begin this challenge by looking at this beautiful picture of the transfer of our sins to Jesus Christ.

“God made him who knew no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5;21).
