Romans 8:11

Christ had to pay our debt because we could never pay it ourselves.   ~~~   As we finish up 1 Samuel 16, we are beginning to learn that, once again, God provides what we need and what we need is a king on whom the Spirit rests, a king that is radically and faithfully and completely obedient to the Holy Spirit. And that King is Jesus! He is our Great Leader! We are not waiting for another. He is the fulfillment of the promise of an eternal King. And we are those who follow. But there is a way to follow Him. The game changer for first century church was the coming of the Holy Spirit to indwell believers and live through them this life of discipleship. The same Spirit that came and resided in them resides in every believer today. Romans 8:11 “If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.” The sports commentator said that the right quarterback is worth whatever price you have to pay to get him. The price is too high for us. We cannot purchase our way to having Christ as our king. We do not have enough moral or spiritual currency. You can’t pay with debt. But what makes Jesus a great King is that He was willing to pay the price on your behalf.
