Paid In Full

The other day I received a cheque in the post. It was the cheque that had been sent to one of the companies we get our books and literature from, to pay for some items we'd received before Christmas. The cheque was returned, however, because I had already paid for the stuff with my credit card.

Because the items had already been paid for in full, no other payment was necessary. It's the same with what Jesus did on the cross for us. As he cried out 'It is finished' (John 19:30). It's the Greek word for 'paid in full'. Because Jesus has paid for our sins by his death on the cross, we cannot contribute anything, we just receive the free gift of God.

The Cross

Paid in full.
