“Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness. And all these things shall be given to you.” –Matthew 6:33

Ironic that a credit card company would give such great advice: encouraging us to seek out only what we need. But credit is all about trust, isn’t it? Because of our history, we’re allowed only so much, and we’re trusted to pay it back.

When God looks at our lives, He doesn’t see us, He sees Jesus. His blood-line of credit extends to you and it extends to me. Appropriate for today's topic, my mom will tell you it reminds her of the song, “He Paid a Debt.”

He paid a debt, He did not owe. I owed a debt, I could not pay. I needed someone to wash my sins away.

And because of that, we do get to chase a life that matters…and the credit is His.
