Bail Was Payed

Luke 7:42-43

42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.

My father tells his testimony and people find it hard to believe. He explains that at one time he was a horrible man. Drugs and alcohol filled his life. He would rather fight you than speak to you. That was before he was forgiven. He tells of how after that night he changed. As he stood washed clean he saw love. I tell you this because he was one that God had forgiven for so much. Now I have gotten to watch him help others. He has helped some get off drugs, others to save their marriages, and some just get back on track. He says he has done nothing but God has done it all. He is will to give up everything and follow Gid because forgave him for so much that he could never repay that debt. There are many like him and it seems that the worse of a sinner they were the more devoted Christian they become. So no matter what you or someone did before remember God forgave you that debt and set you free. Your bail was payed. Now, how will you repay it? I suggest we be about the Father’s business.
