Colossians: Paid in Full
When a debt is paid off the bill may be stamped Paid in Full, or even a mortgage may be burned. In Colossians Paul writes of a handwritten debt being nailed to the cross. A dramatic word image of what Jesus did for us.
Sermon discussion questions for parents to use with their children:
How in debt are we before God?
How serious is that debt?
Why is it so difficult to take on someone else's debt?
Why is our salvation like burning a mortgage?
What specific encouragements were we given so as to not desecrate the cross and what God has done through Christ?
