Micah 7:19 – He will again have compassion on us; he will tread our iniquities underfoot. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.
With all the talk about debt lately, in monetary terms, it’s hard to feel real good about where we are as a country. The word Trillion is now the vernacular used to describe our situation. Debt is something we have all been through at one time or another. Some choose to deal with it, ala Dave Ramsey style, and others choose to immerse themselves further into their problems until their problems come to them.
What if you were one of those who continually lived beyond your means? amassing huge debt from credit cards, mortgage and cars. You knew that regardless of how much you tried there would be no possible way to repay the debt incurred. Then, when all seemed hopeless, someone you don’t know volunteered to pay every penny you owed? What a gift! What Freedom!
Well this has already been done for you . . . . but instead of paying your monetary debt, which is temporary, God paid your sin debt, which is eternal, by offering His one and only son, Jesus Christ to die for your sins. I know some have a hard time coming to terms with this sacrifice. Think of it as one of your parents jumping in front of a car to spare your life. That puts it into perspective, doesn’t it?
If you haven’t accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior then you really don’t know God yet. By accepting Him into your life you will begin a new life without the debt of your sins. What Freedom!
1 John 2:1-3 – My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments.
