“You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.”Colossians 2:13-14 NLT
Sometimes when I’m studying for a sermon or even having a quiet time with the Lord, I wonder, do I really comprehend the incredible gift we were given when Jesus died for our sins?
Do any of us?
Not that we intentionally take it for granted, but we speak about it so routinely that I think we don’t absorb the full scope of His gift.
Think about it. It’s as if our sins were written on a dry-erase board. Then Christ came along with a cloth and wiped the board clean, erasing our sins forever – as though they had never been there!
Left on the board is a receipt that says, “PAID IN FULL.”
Christ took care of it all.
Our sins were nailed to the cross; they’ve been taken care of. Nothing more is needed for forgiveness other than for us to accept this amazing gift.
Have you claimed the freedom of knowing that Christ has paid the full debt of your sins?
If not, let Christ give you a clean slate.
All you have to do is simply accept His gift in faith.
Please don’t put it off. Do it today.
