Understanding what Jesus did through the credit system.

Understanding what Jesus did for us through the credit system.

Every month i receive my credit card bill which i have to pay partially or fully. Allow me to use this credit system for illustration to understand what our Lord Jesus Christ did.

When God created man, man was in the state of innocence. Man was to dwell in paradise. Man may eat of the many trees in the garden except for one, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Through the enticement of the serpent (devil) man disobeyed and as a result of the forbidden tree man got the sin nature which will also result in physical and spiritual death.

This sin nature was passed on to mankind and cause us to sin, and be buried in sin like debts if we think of them in financial terms.

If we are to pay for our sin or "debts" we have to pay for them in hell but here is where Jesus Christ comes in. On the cross He paid for our sins, past, present and future so that we do not have to go to hell. Jesus qualified to pay for our sins or debts because He is the Son of God and the Son of Man, lived a sinless life like a lamb without blemish. His body and blood were given and sacrificed for our sins.

By believing in Jesus and on what He did on the cross of Calvary, we exchanged our sins for His righteousness, like we allow Jesus to pay for our debts.

By believing in Jesus we  also gained a new nature to replace our sin nature.

I hope this help us see and understand what our Lord Jesus did for us.
