Cancelled Debt

Imagine if all your country’s national debt was paid, unconditionally- the slate wiped clean….

I was browsing through some online news reports yesterday when a particular photo caught my attention. It was of the US National Debt Clock. 

This huge, looming digital clock in Times Square has kept a tally of America’s National debt for almost twenty years. On permanent display is the impossibly reachable amount the country owes and each family’s “share” in this debt.

Does this remind you of anything? 

I was instantly reminded of our impossible debt – cancelled out by Jesus!

by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.” Colossians 2:14

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Romans 8:1
