Feb 18 – A Debt Too High

Alberta, is billions of dollars in debt. Unemployment is high in Canada. PEI has the largest rate of unemployment in the nation, around 11 percent. Everywhere, people are in economic trouble. Frequently we hear of countries whose national debt has increased. Provinces are finding red the color of reality. And we are being urged to reduce our personal debt. But there is one personal debt we can never pay. I refer to the sin debt. God’s Word states flatly, “all of us like sheep have gone astray each of us has turned to his own way.” (that’s why the world is in such a mess) Thankfully there is a way out of this debt. Although we have gone astray, that same verse says “but the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him. “ Jesus, by dying on the cross, took our place and paid our debt. However, He does not force forgiveness on us, we have to ask for it.
