The Station of the Nails

Colossians 2:14

“Paid in full.” What a great feeling when you see those words on the final payment of your student loan, your home mortgage, or any major purchase. Financial guru Dave Ramsey teaches people to get out and stay out of debt. But we will always be indebted to our Lord and Savior for the payment he made on our behalf. We could never pay off that debt. That’s why he did it for us. The payment for sin was nailed to the cross. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sin and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).
