Forgive us our debts.
Matthew 6:12

Having debts is unpleasant, particularly if one cannot settle them. Could you possibly have a mountain of debts? I do not mean financial debts, but rather the mountain of guilt piled up through sins that everyone has who lives apart from God. They are debts that no-one can pay off, not even with good works. In this matter there is no reckoning of debit and credit.

On the credit side nobody has anything to show before God. You might ask, “Where are the good works recorded, if not on the credit side?” They are not recorded, for what we, as sinners, might consider good is by no means “good” in God’s sight, even if they have been useful. Without a living relationship with God nobody can do works that have any value for God. And our guilt of sin can not be settled with deeds in any case: “The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23).

Is there no way out of this predicament? Yes, Jesus Christ wishes to stand in for you and take the responsibility for your guilt. As sinners before God we need the one representative who has taken over our debt: Jesus Christ at the cross of Calvary! That was why God gave His Son: to free you from debt. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). That is what God has done for you, so that you need not be lost.

What must you do? “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31). God demands no more than that from you. Isn’t it a great offer? Don’t turn it down!

Today’s reading: Joshua 10:1-11 · 1 Corinthians 8:9-13
