“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.” Romans 5:6 NIV
Read: Romans 6:1-14
An insurance company recently release results of a survey that determined 31% of Americans owe more than they have savings. 23% owe as much as savings they have in savings and only 46% have more savings than they owe. This sounds pretty grim, doesn’t it? Do you owe more than you have in savings?
Being indebted has for many become ‘The American Way’. We seem to believe we can buy, buy and then worry about how we will pay for things later. It is not just individuals. Our government is “In Debt” with no plan of how to eliminate this financial burden which has been placed upon each citizen.
Are you “In Debt”? What if someone would pay off all your bills…all of them…and you owed nothing? Would you be grateful?
God sent His only son, Jesus, to pay off all you owe for the sins you have created. Jesus died so that you can have eternal life. Not only has he paid off all the debts of your past sins if you are a believer, He has paid the price of all your sins of yesterday, today, and all tomorrows as well. God know you are not perfect and will sin again. His desire is for you to become faithful, accountable for your actions and repent for your sins.
You can spend eternity…not just a few days, months or years…in Heaven. If you are not saved by grace, if you don’t know Jesus is your personal savior, ask Him to accept you. It is easy to do. Tell Him of your faith and belief in Him. It is that easy. Ask and you will receive all your sins paid in full.
If you want Jesus to be your Lord, pray: “Dear Lord, I accept you this very moment as my Lord and Savior. I trust and believe in you. Accept my plea for eternal life. Amen.” If this is your acceptance of Jesus, welcome to the family of believers!
Believer’s Prayer: “Dear Lord, Thank you paying the price of all my sins and leaving me debt free to join you in Heaven for eternity. Help me to be mindful of your payment and to live my life sin free. Amen!”
