July 16 – The Debt We Are Unable to Pay

“Home equity debt is one of the fastest growing in our world today.” That warning was made last month by the Financial Consumer’s Agency, saying , “Don’t borrow more than you can afford.” Debt can easily get out of control and we find ourselves unable to pay. There is a parallel to that pertaining to eternal matters, because we all have a sin debt we are unable to pay. God’s Word states it clearly, “There is none righteous, no not one.” But thankfully, we learn that God has provided a way out of our heavy debt. While informing us that “the wages of sin is death,” (both physical and spiritual) we are also given good news- “the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” When we accept His offer of forgiveness, He cancels all of our sin debt. Why would anyone turn down that gracious offer?
