Oh praise the One who paid my debt.

"Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe. Sin had left a crimson stain, he washed it white as snow.

Oh praise the one who paid my debt and raised this life up from the dead."

While reading my bible this morning and afternoon, I was doing some devotionals and was struck anew by the things that Jesus has done for us through the saving work of the cross.

1 - We are set free from the slavery of sin and death.

Romans 6:10-11: 10 For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. 11 So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Romans 6:14 :14 For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
Romans 8:1-4: There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.2 For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. 3 For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Sonn in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

2 - We have been forgiven of all our sins

Col 2:13-14 : . 13 And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.

3 - We are adopted heirs (the word "son" is used in such a fashion that it means to be heirs, or inheritors, it does not denote specific "male" "sonship," which is a heresy propagated by the fake Gospel of Thomas.)

Gal 3:26: 26 for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith.
Gal 4:7: 7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.
Eph 1:4-5: 4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love 5 he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will.

"How deep the father's love for us? How vast beyond all measure?

That he should give his only Son to make make a wretch his treasure."
