Eternally Debt-Free

It’s all too easy to relapse into the error of believing that we need to do something to deserve, or at least to maintain, our salvation. All too often, I catch myself falling into that terrible deception.And doesn’t Satan love wrapping us up in the arrogance of self-righteousness followed by the despair of condemnation?

Thankfully, when we realize that Jesus took our sin on Himself, fully paying our eternal debt to God, we rejoice in His abundant grace. Though we owe Him everything, we rest in the assurance that He has paid even our debt to Him! I never tire of celebrating the glorious truth that He suffered in my place so that I can spend eternity in His wonderful presence, where I’ll joyfully praise Him forever more.

Today’s hymn reminds me that I can stop trying to contribute to Christ’s finished work on the cross. He has done everything necessary for my salvation, and I can only praise Him.
