Thought for the week

Nailed to the Cross


"When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross." - Colossians 2:13-14
Sometimes when I’m studying for a sermon or even just 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 take this act for granted, but we speak about it so routinely that I think we fail to absorb the full scope of this gift.
It’s as though all of our sins were listed on a writing board. And then Christ has come along with a cloth and erased them forever…as though they were never even there. On that board, somebody puts a receipt that says, “PAID IN FULL.” That’s what the nails of the cross did – paid the penalty for our sin in full. Christ has done it all. Our sins have been nailed to the cross; they’ve been taken care of. Nothing more is needed for forgiveness other than our accepting this amazing gift.
Have you done that? Have you claimed the liberating freedom of knowing that Christ has paid the full debt of your sins? If not, why not let Christ give you a clean slate? After all, He’s already stamped them “paid in full.” Our choice is simply to accept His gift in faith.

It is the ONLY Paid-In-Full that stands the test of time and must be our focus above ALL OTHER temporal tribulations!
