Freedom from our Debts

Financial debt is something with which many families struggle. The average
American household carries thousands of dollars in debt. Freedom from debt is a
way to illustrate the experience of freedom in Christ. You may lead the
congregation to consider what they might do with their time and resources if they
had no debt. You may also lift up churches that have assisted families in freeing
themselves from debt, particularly medical debt (Sharon Myers, “Church Forgives
$3 Million in Medical Debt for Davidson County Residents,” The Dispatch, March
27, 2023,

fear and sin is even better.
