Paid In Full

I pay my bills online, and the payment screen always gives at least 3 choices - minimum amount due, the total owed on the account, and other.

Jesus paid all we owed. He cleared all the accumulated debt on the account, every balance transfer, every late payment, all the interest. He wiped the slate clean.

We owed it to a thief. The thief didn't care about the dollars. He wasn't really interested in us paying off the debt. He wanted to hold it over us forever. But Jesus satisfied the debt and destroyed the power of the thief.

Our only debt is to love one another.

"Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. (Rm 13:8)
