Debts are a big part of everyday life. Let's face it, without payment plans there are some things in life we might never afford. Things like cars, though it takes five to six years to pay back the debt. Or college education, despite an average debt of $27,000 at graduation. Or houses, with a debt that is often spread over three decades.

A DEBT WE CAN NEVER REPAY

No wonder people celebrate when such large debts are paid in full Most of us eventually pay our debts, but it's also possible to get so far into debt that there's no way out. In fact, that has already happened...you and I owe a debt that we can never pay

Our debt is the reason that God's Son, Jesus Christ, came to earth 2000 years ago. Thankfully, He didn't come to make us pay up Just the opposite: the Bible explains that "God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved" (John 3:17).

Saved from what? The Bible says "as by one man the first man, Adam] sin entered into the world, and death by sin, and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned" (Romans 5:12). So, it's not just criminals and evil leaders who are sinners. It's also "normal" people who tell lies to hide the truth, cheat to gain an advantage, and fail to keep their promises. God calls such actions sins, and we're all guilty of doing them.

His justice demands payment for our offenses against each other and God himself. The Bible warns, "as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27). The bad news is there's nothing we could bring to that heavenly "courtroom" that would be nearly enough to "pay for" the debt of sins we've accumulated during our lifetimes.

BUT WAIT...THERE'S GOOD NEWS

Jesus Christ "also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust us ], that He might bring us to God" (1 Peter 3:18). He paid the debt of sin we couldn't pay...a debt he didn't owe Did you get that? The Son of God willingly took the judgment of your sins and mine to save us from suffering our sins' consequences for eternity in hell

When God "laid on Him the iniquity of us all" (Isaiah 53:6), Jesus cried out in anguish, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (Mark 15:34). The answer is simple--because Jesus was taking our place. "For God] hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him" (2 Corinthians 5:21).

OUR DEBT HAS BEEN PAID IN FULL

Imagine that We--sinners by nature and choice--can be declared "righteous" before God because Jesus paid our debt completely Just before Jesus breathed His last breath on the cross, He gathered His strength and cried out fo
