We were dead but now we are alive! Everything about us was dead. Our heart, soul, mind, and strength. We were dead and powerless to do anything about it. But God made us alive with Christ. He turned our heart of stone into a heart of flesh. He put a deposit of the Holy Spirit into our hearts. He quickened our mortal flesh.
In doing so, He forgave our every sin. He wiped the slate clean. He canceled our debt. We owed a debt we could not pay. It stood there condemning us for all eternity. On the cross, Jesus paid that debt and removed it from our ledger. It has been been paid in full!
You are legally righteous in God’s eyes now. Legally you are free. Do you feel righteous and free? Have you fully embraced that realization? You are no longer a prisoner. You are no longer a debtor. You are no longer a foreigner or alien. You are a child of the King! You are an heir of the promise! You are free!
Do not live any longer like you are still under that yoke of bondage, the weight of a debt you could not pay. Live like you are free!
