December 19 – GIVE JOY – Jesus paid the debt

Read Romans 6: 23

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Has anyone ever owed you money and they have not paid you back?  Have you ever wished they would just give it back to you or maybe you have even gotten angry with them? Now think about this: God created us and yet we have sinned and turned against Him. We have done the exact opposite thing than what he wanted from us. We run from Him, some have denied him, and what did God do?  He sent His own Son on that first Christmas, so He could pay the debt of our sin for us. He did not demand anything from us except to believe in Jesus. All he asks in return is for us to believe in Jesus as our Savior and then make Him in charge of our lives. Have you done that? Will you? There is no better time than this Christmas to choose to believe and follow Jesus!

Give Joy Idea:

As a family, pay for someone’s dinner or Christmas gifts.
