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

I love getting together with friends and sharing with each other over a cup of coffee what God is doing in our lives, it boosts my faith and lifts my heart. That's the aim of this blog. There's a story behind it; It was inspired after a friend gave me a single mustard seed, saying ‘that’s all it takes Jill’. What my friend didn’t know was that the very same morning God had reminded me of a promise He'd made to me over 20 years before regarding writing. I took the mustard seed home, planted it and watched it grow from a tiny sapling to a large, flourishing shrub at our front door. Every time I look at it it reminds me that our God is always true to his promises. Jesus lives in and works through his people, every single day. It's good to share what he's doing! I love talking about Him and writing about Him.
