The Preserved and Living Word of God



Picture if you will, a blank check. The amount of the check: sufficient grace. The signer of the check: Jesus. The only blank line is for the payee. That part is for you.

May I urge you to spend a few moments with your Savior, receiving this check? Reflect on the work of God’s grace. The nails that once held a Savior to the cross. His sacrifice was for you. Express your thanks for his grace. Whether for the first time or the thousandth, let him hear you whisper, “Forgive us our debts.” And let him answer your prayer as you imagine writing your name on the check. No more deposits are necessary. So completed was the payment that Jesus used a banking term to proclaim your salvation. “It is finished!” Perhaps I best slip out now and leave the two of you to talk.
