You are too small to owe God. It’s like saying that you owe Trump. Anything you owe Trump is something that Trump can easily let go. There’s nobody on my wall right now who is indebted directly to Donald Trump. You are not on his level of either creditors or debtors. Even if you owe him and he finds out, he will quickly forgive the debt. The people who owe Trump are banks, big corporations etc. Not people like you and me.
Yet you think you owe God. Some of you even think they have a covenant with God which they have to keep. You are insulting God. You are belittling God. You can’t owe. Nobody can owe God and God cannot owe anybody. He is God all by Himself. He is in His own class all by Himself. God has only one covenant and that covenant is not with you or me, His covenant is with Jesus who is God. So it is safe to say that God is in a covenant with God. Do you understand?
Anytime you feel like you owe God tithes, seed etc, you belittle God. Don’t listen to any pastor who makes you feel like you owe God, they are making you belittle God in your mind.
‘God no be your age mate.’ If the richest man in your country gives you a gift, would you boldly pay for the gift? No. If the richest man in your nation gives you a wrist watch, it’s definitely going to be a unique gift. Can you pay for it?
Stop belittling God. Just receive His free gift in Christ and enjoy grace.
