Daily Nugget

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011.

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

A young ex-serviceman went into a New York bank to get a loan for the amount of $600. He stood in line until his turn came to present his completed application forms to the clerk. The bank employee took considerable time in finishing the transaction, leaving his desk repeatedly to talk to his superior. Finally the man received the cash. When he turned to leave, flashbulbs went off as newspaper photographers took his picture. Bank officials crowded around to inform him that they were returning the papers he had just signed, and that he didn’t have to repay the money. The reason: the amount he had borrowed included the one billionth dollar that had been loaned out since the opening of that lending institution. To highlight the event, the veteran’s debt was not entered on the books. Never would it be held against him.
The miracle of our relationship with Jesus is that our sins were placed on the cross with Jesus. The dept we owe was settled long ago. Paul explained what Jesus did for us on the cross with these words in Colossians 2:14,
“Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.”
"God, Thank You for Your love that sets us free.

Bro. Bill

God is Good...all the time
