In Tillman’s Corner, near Mobile, AL. a stranger walked into a Sears store and asked for the manager. He wanted to pay off some layaway bills for some families – some families that he didn’t even know! In all, layaway items for 18 different families were selected. The total debt owed amounted to $2,600. The 18 families were contacted and told that the bill for their layaway items had been paid and the items were ready for pickup. There was a lot of disbelief, but the disbelief was soon replaced by extreme gratitude.
There is another kind of debt that we have all incurred. We have all sinned against God. As the scriptures says, “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23), and again “For we all stumble in many ways” (James 3:2). This debt is one that none of us can pay. How fortunate we are that one stepped forward to do this for us. Speaking of Jesus the Bible says, “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sin and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed” (1 Peter 2:24). Truly Jesus paid a debt He did not owe. Why not accept the gift on His terms? Come and learn of the One who paid your debt.
