Gambler #9

And when he finished speakin’
He turned back toward the window
Crushed out his cigarette
And faded off to sleep
And somewhere in the darkness
The gambler he broke even

The old guy died, but did he really break even? There is no evidence of that possibility by his lifestyle. Certainly, his last words revealed he still had a debt. We owe the Creator and I’d certainly want to make sure that debt was paid before I left the earth. Christ came to relieve us of spiritual debt. Don’t play games with this one.

Colossians 2:14 

By canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This He set aside, nailing it to the cross.

Romans 6:23 

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Give it some thought.
