“A man in debt is so far a slave.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Imagine every debt that’s gone unpaid. For some it’s medical debt, others student loans, while others a house note. Our sin is also a type of debt and the Bible says, “The wages of sin is death” (Rom. 6:23). That’s the only way our sin debt could have been paid under the Old Testament Law. However, Jesus took on the sins of the entire world and died in our place so that we could be debt free. Wherever you are in your relationship with God, ask Him to take your debt. Simply confess your sins to God, repent, and ask to be in a right relationship with Him. Be debt free.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God… (Ephesians 2:8, ESV).
