Topic: THE DANGER OF INDEBTEDNESS

Bible Reading: Romans 13: 8

📖8….”Do not owe anyone anything, except to love one another, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.” ( Christian Standard Bible)

Message:

🔥Even though man is God’s property by creation, yet He feels indebted to man, being his Creator, hence he is always making a way of escape for him (1 Cor 10:13), to pay his debt of love to man. If God who can do anything without giving explanation to any body, still struggles to pay all the debts he owes man, by blessing and protecting any man/woman that believes in him, then we humans shouldn’t actually be indebted to anyone. Because of the inability of man to pay his debts, God instructed us in Romans 13:8 to owe only the debt of love, and pay it daily by loving one another daily.

🔥🔥Why God doesn’t want us to owe is because, debts outlive debtors. Sometimes the survival power of debts, turns them into foundational issues, if they pass through generations of parents. In 2 Kgs 4:1, the debts of a prophet’s son, almost sent his two sons to slavery after his debts outlived him. If Elisha was not appealed to by the late debtor’s widow in verse 2, the sons would have gone into servitude for their father’s indebtedness. So, if a good man leaves a positive inheritance for his children’s children (Proverbs 13:22), a bad man would also leave a negative inheritance for his children’s children.

🔥🔥🔥God’s hatred for indebtedness made him to annul and cancel a proverb in Ezekiel 18:1-3. If we abide by God, this proverb will never be inherited by our children. Solomon knowing the danger of indebtedness, said in Ecclesiastes 5:4-6 that, we shouldn’t vow if we are not going to pay. Yet many believers take pleasure in vowing without paying. Not because they can’t pay, but they don’t just want to pay. That is indebtedness to God. Some believers even refuse to pay their tithes, because they hear unbelievers condemning tithe payment. The question is, WHOSE REPORT DO YOU BELIEVE? Your pastor’s or that of social media commentators? Refusing to pay tithes, makes you a debtor to God, and an easy trip to bankruptcy. Avoid debts!

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

🙏Teach me father, to pay daily, the debt of love that I owe all humans, so that my knowledge of you will increase, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏O Lord, as I struggle to pay all my indebtedness to man and you, erase from me, every stubborn debt that I have forgotten, which wants to outlive me, and become a problem to my family after me, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏🙏Precious Father, remind me of every vow I made during my crisis periods which I have either forgotten, or failed to pay after the crisis, in Jesus’ name.
