Jan 09 – Too Much Debt

Christmas 2014 has come and gone. Every New Year many people find themselves worried about their debt load, having spent too much on Christmas. The emphasis on materialism has led them to spend more than they could afford. Responsible people then have to cut back until the debt is paid. Did you ever think about the fact that each one of us has a personal spiritual debt? The Bible says, “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” and that “the wages of sin is death. ”That debt is so great it is impossible for us to repay. It is the sin debt that can only be paid by God’s perfect Son. Paul, in the New Testament, wrote, “we implore you, be reconciled to God.” But he also tells us how that is possible, with the words, “God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself.” What wonderful news this is. Christ paid our sin debt when He died in our place on the Cross. When we accept Him, in place of our sin, He gives us His righteousness.”
