YOU ARE IN DEBT TO GOD.
The Bible asks this question, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36) You might be debt free or even financially successful; however, the Bible states that you are in debt to God. “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one…For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:10, 23) Your debt to God must be paid.
ONLY DEATH CAN PAY YOUR DEBT.
The Bible states, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” (Romans 5:12) “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23a) Your payment you owe for your sin is death. However, this death is more than just physical death. The Bible says, “The wicked shall be turned into hell…” (Psalm 9:17a) “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death..” (Revelation 20:14) After you die, the payment for sin has only just begun, and you will pay the debt of your sin for all eternity. The Bible asks, “The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?” (Isaiah 33:14b)
SOMEONE HAS ALREADY PAID YOUR DEBT.
Friend, because of God’s great love for you, He has paid your debt! Although it is your debt and you are responsible for its payment, Jesus paid it all out of His mercy and pure love for you. Romans 5:8-9 states, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood to pay your debt of sin! The Bible says in I Colossians 1:14, “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:”
The Lord Jesus Christ said, “…except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:3) Are you willing to turn away from your sin and turn to God? The decision is yours. The payment for sin is final. Your eternity depends upon it. John 3:36 states, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
God promised you, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” (Romans 10:9)
If you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me the following simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.
Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!
Believe by faith. Share the faith. and Keep the faith! God Bless You!
