"Faye's daily words of encouragement" # 100 Todays word is: Repay"

We really never repay Jesus for dying for our sins on the cross, but living a godly life will help take the sting out of it.

"Faye daily words of encouragement"# 100 Todays word is: Repay"

 Definition of the word Repay:To pay back a debt owed. A payment returned.

Deuteronomy chapter 7 -10 : And repay them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.

Proverbs chapter 13 - 21 : Evil persueth sinners; but righteous good shall be repaid.

Luke chapter 10 - 35 : And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host and said unto to him, take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again I Will repay.

Romans chapter 12 -19:  yourselves Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves; but rather give  place unto wrath: for it is written, vengeance is mines,  I will repay, saith the Lord.

We all owe a debt of thanks unto God and Jesus Christ our  Saviour for dying on the cross for our sins. We can repay our debt by living a godly life and helping our brothers and sisters in Christ.  We're repaying  our debt every time we bring a soul to Jesus. We also repay the debt by spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ to others. We repay the debt by teaching others to have a personal relationship with the son of God.    We all know, that once we incur a debt; we're responsible for that particular debt, and we want to keep up our good standing record  in the credit department; So we pay our bills.

Repaying an accumulated debt to Jesus is the same . we all wan to be accredited with being a righteous, obedient and faithful child of God, that live by the standards of God.  In doing the things that's right; and treating our brothers and sisters the way we wish to be treated and living a godly life, we're repaying the the debt back to Jesus, our Lord and Saviour.

Creativeone, thank you for the gentle reminder that we owe God. We owe Him because nothing belongs to us and one of these days we will run head on into the Divine Creditor and we will be required to pay our debt in full; unless, of course, our debt is forgiven.

Forever His,
