Live Debt Free

Posted by Dan Bolin on March 08, 2017 @ 10:19
 
"Nobody can produce new evidence of your depravity that will make God change his mind. For God justified you with (so to speak) his eyes open. He knew the worst about you at the time when he accepted you for Jesus' sake; and the verdict which he passed then was, and is, final." 

J.I. Packer 
 
 
A SLICE OF FRESH BREAD
 
A friend of mine recently paid off the mortgage on his house. Over the years, he had refinanced the home several times trying to get a better interest rate and lower his monthly payments.  

Each time he refinanced he felt better, but he still felt the weight of responsibility tied to his loan. After each renegotiation, he still owed the bank a lot of money. Not until the debt was paid was he free from the burden he carried.

We often try to refinance our way out of our sinful predicament. We renegotiate our lives with good things, and feel better for a while. We try attending church, giving more, managing our anger, avoiding sinful behaviors, and a host of other “refinancing” techniques. They are all good things, but the debt is still there.

Paul reminded the Galatians, “So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no one will be justified.” (Galatians 2:16B)

Jesus has paid the debt. Don’t try refinancing your life one more time. Accept Christ’s payment on our behalf and enjoy living debt-free.

PRAYER REQUESTS
 

CCI-Japan recently installed a board of directors. Please pray for wisdom and leadership as they try to reorganize each job to be more beneficial for all of CCI-Japan members.

CCSA is thankful for very good rains in the greater part of South Africa. The Lord truly answered prayers. Please pray for rain in the Cape province as water levels are dangerously low, the drought being the worst in 70 years. A day of prayer is scheduled for April 22 for 1 million South African Christians to gather in the Free State Province to pray for the country and submit South Africa before the Lord. Please pray for the leaders of the event, the planning and funds, as well as the event itself.
 
Regional conferences are underway throughout Canada. Pray for safe travels and for God to minister to camp staff. Praise the LORD that He allows us to meet together for fellowship, training and encouragement.

In addition to providing instruction at three denominational conferences this spring CCI-Ukraine is working hard to put together a top-notch conference of its own. Scheduled for May 6-9 CCI Ukraine National Staff Training Workshop will bring together 180 camp leaders for training, networking and inspiration. The registration is underway. Please pray that God will inspire the right people to attend and will provide them with the finances they need to cover expenses related to attending the conference.

Pray for the West African camping movement’s Steering Committee as they mobilize and prepare for the training in Accra, Ghana from June 12-16. Praise God for several champions who have stepped forward to mobilize leaders already involved or interested in Christian camping in the West African nations of Sierra Leone and Nigeria. They hope to hold visioning events immediately before or after the Accra training.  Pray for the Lord’s leading, provision and movement as the West African team prepares for these events.
