One of the biggest problems that many of us have is debt. We end up borrowing more than we can pay back realistically.
This is not just a problem for people but also for nations, as has been in the news now for weeks on end. Creditors are all too willing to lend money at extortionate rates and with heavy late penalties. And so the whole debt crisis spirals out of control.
Wouldn't it be great if we could just begin again please? If the debts were cancelled worldwide and everybody could have a fresh start?
The Bible likens salvation in Christ to a universal cancellation of debt. It's an analogy used by many of its authors. It's an encouraging concept. Sin attracts us more and more into storing up problems for ourselves, and soon we become overloaded and the burden is almost too great to bear. It's like a pile of debt that is impossible for us to clear. There's no way we can do it by ourselves, and this is where Jesus comes in. Jesus died to clear the debt of our sin. Through him the debt is cancelled, its burden is released, and we have that fresh spiritual start.
It's incredible when you think of it, and maybe the world's politicians and bankers could learn something from what Jesus has done for us.
We are no longer indebted to sin.
Jesus has paid the price and set us free!
