Topic:The Unpayable Debt
By Billy Graham • April 28

Who gave himself for our sins . . .
—Galatians 1:4

Billy Graham April 13
Years ago King Charles V was loaned a large sum of money by a merchant in Antwerp. The note came due, but the king was bankrupt and unable to pay. The merchant gave a great banquet for the King. When all the guests were seated and before the food was brought in, the merchant had a large platter placed on the table and a fire lighted on it. Then, taking the note out of his pocket, he held it in the flames until it was burned to ashes. The king threw his arms around his benefactor and wept. Just so, we have been mortgaged to God. The debt was due, but we were unable to pay. Two thousand years ago God invited the world to the Gospel feast, and in the agonies of the cross, God held your sins and mine until every last vestige of our guilt was consumed.

It’s never too late to confess past sins. Read more in Billy Graham’s answer.

Prayer for the day
In gratitude I kneel before You, Lord Jesus Christ.
