We owe a debt because we broke God’s laws. That debt listed all the rules we failed to follow. But God forgave us that debt. He took away that debt and nailed it to the cross."Colossians 2:14 (ICB)
All of us are in debt to someone. We may or may not be financially in debt, but offended, hurt, or sinned against someone. All of us have.But we have an even bigger debt. The Bible says we owe the biggest debt of all to God.
Paul describes the debt like this in Colossians 2:14: “We owed a debt because we broke God’s laws. That debt listed all the rules we failed to follow. But God forgave us that debt. He took away that debt and nailed it to the cross” (ICB).
Can we imagine if tonight when we are at home, and all of our financial creditors called us and told us that they were wiping out our debt completely want would be our reaction?
We would rejoice because we were free. That’s what Jesus did for us on the cross.
The Bible says, “His Son paid the price to free us” (Colossians 1:14 GW).
Jesus paid off our debt to God; us no longer need to pay anything.
Hebrews 10:18 tells us, “When sins have been forgiven, there is no need to offer any more sacrifices” (NLT).
Jesus Christ paid for every sin we have ever committed. He paid for the sins we will commit next week, next year, and in 10 years.
Jesus paid it all! There is nothing more we need to do.Just believe in him and think that we are free from intentions of Sin and condemnation.
Father,We thank you for the sacrifice which you have done on the cross to make me holy and free from everything.Amen
