One for the Road – “Debt-Free”

Debt-free.  That’s a good thing.


Mortgage paid.  Credit cards at zero.  The last payment on the car in the mail.


It feels good.


But…there is another payoff that is better…by far.  Being debt-free from sin.


The Apostle Paul called it redemption.


In his day it referred to the payoff to secure freedom for a slave.


Jesus told a story about a man who was in debt 10,000 talents – an amount he would never be able to pay.


So it is with us.  We owed a debt we could never pay.  But…Jesus paid it all.


All accounts settled.  Nothing owing.


But how?  By casting yourself on the mercy of God…and repenting of sin.
