“Hereby cancelled, voided, avoided, nullified, set aside and is of no further force and effect”

This is the BBC’s quote of the day for Thursday 26th November, it’s the quote of a judge deciding in favour of a couple who were set to lose their house because of debt. He ruled against the banks and scrapped the $500,000 debt as the banks were apparently unfair in their administration of the debt. The couple in question must have felt such a relief! They “went to court expecting to be evicted after interest and penalties on their mortgage took their debts to $500,000 (about £300,000). But as the bank had rejected their every attempt to settle the debt, the judge branded the bank “repulsive” and wiped their slate clean”. Totally clean!

Not a perfect picture, but nonetheless a reminder that our debt against God has totally been ripped up to. He’s said to me :

“Sarah your debt is hereby cancelled, voided, avoided, nullified, set aside and is of no further force and effect”.

And this is true for all who trust in Jesus 🙂 And my debt wasn’t unfair to begin with, I owed it but now I don’t – Jesus has paid the price!

woop!
