Spiritual Accounting – Nebraska City News Press

Fishing Preacher with Aaron Jeffers

Colossians 2:14 “Having canceled the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and he took him out of the way, having nailed him to the cross.

My mother made books for my father and could not account for two hundred. Finally, after two days of this, I looked at my mother and put my hand in my pocket and said, “Here! Take that, put it in the account and forget about it, and move on!

“Son, it’s not that easy. I must be able to account for what goes in and out. These two cents are still untraceable.

Many people can balance a checkbook, but don’t live in balance with God because they don’t embrace God’s way of doing spiritual work.

God literally took every sinful transaction in our life, nailed it to the cross, and all we have to do is grasp it by faith as in Colossians 2:12, “having been buried with him in baptism , in which you also were raised with him through faith in the work of God, who raised him from the dead.

Now let’s talk about those loose pennies.

I know many people know that Jesus forgave their sin, but they still have those sins that were “doozies” that keep climbing up their spiritual account asking to demand payment for their soul’s guilt.

They think, “How could God really forgive and forget this (these) transaction(s)?

Once a transaction has been made, it appears on the account record. But if the debt is cancelled, no matter how much

But if the debt is canceled, no matter how many people scream for more payment… you are free.

Also, according to the Word of God, this old man died. Have you ever tried to get money from a deceased person? When God cancels the debt, no further payment is necessary. So why let guilt or shame even try to be a debt collector?
