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.
