Reflections From the Heart of Allan Redenius
Have you ever bought something you could not afford? Most of us have. We finance that purchase over time, commonly called a mortgage payment.
Imagine one day the guy who holds your mortgage (the banker) suddenly demands payment. He is unrelenting, unreasonable, it matters not to him that you have a signed contract. He wants to be paid TODAY! He even threatens bodily harm if you don’t pay up.
There are no savings, no cash reserves to satisfy the banker’s demand. You are at the end of your proverbial rope. There is no hope, or so you think. Suddenly, a kind Samaritan steps out of the darkness and pays the one holding the lien on your loan in full.
Would you not be beholding, indebted to that Samaritan who bailed you out of that impossible situation?
Whether you realize it or not, if you haven’t given your soul to Jesus, there is another who holds the mortgage on your soul. One day, death is going to come-a-knocking, demanding that you pay up for all the wrongs (sins) you’ve done in your life. Unless you have a good Samaritan to bail you out, that would be Jesus, in your life, this banker demands what you can’t afford, your soul in hell.
On that day of death, there is One Who will pay your debt—if during life, you gave your soul to Him. You do know Jesus willingly died on the cross to pay your sin debt, do you not?
HE is the way, the truth, and the life! Everlasting life with an eternity with JESUS—your debt paid in FULL!
God bless you now and always,
