The Bible tells us that we all are born into this world in a condition of debt - and it's a debt that we cannot pay off (Rom 5:12). All of us are born into this world with the debt of Adam's sin charged to our account. God is our great Creditor, and every day we compound that debt further before Him with our own sins. Well, in our text today, Matthew presents to us Someone who takes the burden of our debt upon Himself, one who has no personal “sin-debt,” so He’s able and willing to pay our debt.
