One’s credit rating is an indication of the level of faith that a lender has in his or her ability and willingness to repay any funds that the lender might advance to him or her. It is apparently based on the person’s current financial assets and his or her financial history. A good credit rating is a valuable resource to have. It can be very useful in any time of emergency when a major expense is necessary to handle some unforeseen circumstance. But it may be lost or jeopardized or changed if a person uses his or credit to make purchases that he or she knows are unnecessary and beyond his or her anticipated timely income.
This matter of one’s credit rating has some things in common with one’s faith in God. What is God’s credit rating with you? How much faith do you have in him to pay for your sins with the bloody sacrifice of his Son, Jesus? God has said that he would do this if you would repent of your sins, acknowledge Jesus as the Lord of your life, and trust them. For some insight into this matter see this statement on my website: “Faith”.
This matter of faith and trust is a very basic part of living in a world that is filled with all kinds of risks and unloving enemies. Whether you are concerned with some economic or spiritual matters in your life, let’s talk about a good credit rating for you and God.
