Debt Free 11/10/14

“A man loaned money to two people—500 pieces of silver to one and 50 pieces to the other. But neither of them could repay him, so he kindly forgave them both, canceling their debts. Who do you suppose loved him more after that?"    Luke 7:41-42  NLT

The answer to the question is a no-brainer!  The one who has been forgiven much would, of course love much!

Sin is debt... whether it is little or much... If you owe it, you will be required to pay it.  And.. the price is life.   Some folks spend their life trying to "WORK" the debt off, thinking, "If I can just sacrifice more, I will surely be able to PAY OFF the debt!"

Beloved, have you gotten to the place where you stopped trying to "Work it Off", and just accept the debt free life that Christ gave you with a grateful heart?

David wrote, "Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven,
whose sin is put out of sight!  Yes, what joy for those whose record the Lord has cleared of guilt,
whose lives are lived in complete honesty".

Dear one... Lets be honest about it... Through Christ, you are debt free... now go with joy... and set others free!
