A great debt word.

Debt accumulates sometimes at a high rate of speed.

Have you ever looked at your credit card statement at the end of a cycle and said…

“Wow I didn’t know we spent that much!”

or maybe you said…

“Someone has stolen our credit card number!”


“My wife shops to much!” (Or husband)?

Because the debt had accumulated beyond what you thought you had spent?

I feel that way today, but its not because of credit cards (we do not have those)

I feel that way because of sin…

My sin

It seems I’m still in debt to God for sinning against Him.

In fact this debt continues to accumulate each day I live, there seems to be no way around it, each day I live the debt continues to grow and grow.

The amount of sin debt that I have accumulated in my Post Salvation State of life is more than I could ever pay for, there is no amount of penitence that would cover it and I will never be able to do enough to call it even with God.  On top of that if you add the sins I committed before I received Jesus as my savior, hopeless would be to weak a word to describe the impossibility of it all…

it is truly a debt I could never pay.

It is during these moments… moments where I feel like a complete and utter failure, that scripture enters into my mind…

“There is now No Condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”

“No Condemnation..”

for as the old song goes “He payed a debt I could not pay”

and he paid it in full…


present and future.

So Jesus was ready for the fact that after salvation I would continue (even though I do not want or desire to) to accumulate sin debt…

He paid in advance for all debt I would accumulate today and tomorrow

I am thankful for that…
