My Old Account was Settled Long Ago

 If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account;                 Philemon 18.

paid in full





I don’t like to be behind on my bills.  I have been very fortunate and blessed up to now to be able to keep up with my bills.  I know that the longer I leave my bills unpaid, the bigger they become and the harder it is to pay them off because of late fees and interest.

Friend that is true with your spiritual debts as well.  Your sin account is growing everyday and you must have assistance to get your account paid off because you cannot pay them off by yourself.                                                                                                                                                How do you do that?  I was hoping you would ask.

The Bible says,  Who his own self (Jesus Christ)  bare our sins in his own body on the tree…2 Peter 2:24

Jesus paid your sin debt for you with his own blood and it is available to you if you will only acknowledge your sin debt.  Tell him that you can’t pay it off by yourself and ask Him to pay your sin debt for you, then your debts will be paid in full and your sin account will be settled.

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul.     Mark8:36.                                                                                                                                                 A great song entitled The Old Account goes like this…

Well there was a time on earth when in the book of heaven
An old account was standing for sins yet unforgiven
My name was at the top and many things below
But I went unto the keeper and settled it long ago

Long ago, long ago
Yes the old account was settled long ago
And the record’s clear today cause he washed my sins away
For the old account was settled long ago

Well the old account was large and growing every day
For I was always sinning and never tried to pray
But when I looked ahead and saw such pain and woe                                                            I went unto the keeper and settled it long ago

When in that happy home, my Savior’s home above                                                                        I sing redemption’s story and praise Him for his love                                                                  I’ll not forget that book with pages white as snow                                                                   Cause I went to the keeper and settled it long ago.


When at the judgement bar i stand before my King                                                                    He the book will open he can not find a thing                                                                                 Then will my heart be glad as tears of joy shall flow shall                                                             Cause I went to the keeper and settled it long ago.


Now sinner seek the Lord repent of all your sins
Cause this he has commanded if you would enter in
And then if you should live a hundred years below
Well you know you got it settled cause you settled it long ago
Long ago (down on my knees)…

Jesus paid a sin debt– that he did not owe:                                                                                        So you would not owe a sin debt– that you could not pay.

Don’t get covered up with sin debt—Get covered by the blood of Jesus Christ.
