We are debtors—not to the flesh.

We are debtors—not to the flesh.
“Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.” Romans 8:12 (NKJV)
“Its payback time.”
Definitely, you have heard that expression before.
Or someone tells you I owe you one.
Or much more, “you owe me one.”
We are all debtors to God’s Grace and forgiving Mercy.
Do you sometimes reflect on how much you owe God?
Yes, Jesus Christ paid it all.
Pause and think of what man would be without the redemptive Grace.
Jesus said it is finished.

Can you imagine what it would have been without Salvation?
Definitely, you owe God, not just one but multiples.
Think of His Favor!
Think of His Protection over you 24/7
Think of His uncountable Blessings towards you in so many ways.
When as humans, we can say to one another, “I owe you one.”
Reflect on how much you owe God.
However, as our text emphasized:
The payback is not through your works of the flesh.
It is purely by Daily living right with God.
“O Lord, our God, no one can compare with you. Such wonderful works and miracles are all found with you! And you think of us all the time with your countless expressions of love— far exceeding our expectations! “
Psalms 40:5 (TPT)
You sometimes express that obligation to give back to the family, old school, community, and different places.
What are you giving back to God?
“So, my brothers, we must not live the way our bodies want us to live. We must not be ruled by our wrong ways.” Romans 8:12 (WE)
Give back to God the way HE wants.
Let your life be a continuous thanksgiving to HIM.
