No Greater Gift


Do we really comprehend the incredible gift we were given when Jesus died for our sins?

When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross (Colossians 2:13–14). 

Do we really comprehend the incredible gift we were given when Jesus died for our sins? Not that we take this act for granted, but we have spoken about it so routinely that we might not absorb the full scope of this gift. 

It’s as though all of our sins were listed on a chalkboard, and then Christ came along with a cloth and erased them forever. It’s as though they had never been there. And then on that board, somebody put a receipt that said, “Paid in Full.” That’s what the nails on the cross did—paid the penalty for our sin in full. Christ has done it all. Our sins have been nailed to the cross; they’ve been taken care of. Nothing more is needed for forgiveness other than our accepting this amazing gift. Have you done that? Have you claimed the liberating forgiveness, knowing that Christ has paid the full debt for your sins? If not, why not let Christ give you a clean slate? After all, He’s already “paid in full.” Our choice is simply to accept His gift in faith.
