As we finished eating our meal at Bob Evan’s this afternoon, our server came to our table and announced, “Another customer paid your bill.”
My husband and I looked at each other, stunned. The server described the person and his wife, telling us where they had sat. We realized who it was. Our neighbors had been at that table, the same table we saw them at the last time we were there. Only this time Hubby was the one who saw them. My back was to them.
These neighbors were living here when we moved in almost 33 years ago. He worked at the factory with hubby. He has always been a helpful neighbor. He takes care of his wife who is critically ill. The server and the cashier told us this couple eat there every day.
I got to thinking about another bill we have outstanding against us. The debt of sin. Once we give our hearts to the Lord, Jesus pays that bill for us. I wonder if we are as appreciative for Jesus’ paying our debt of sin for us as we should be.
Because Jesus paid the debt for our sins, we are saved from an eternity in hell. There is an old chorus that goes: I had a debt I could not pay;He paid a debt He did not owe.
