Which Bank?

My husband got a little suspicious this week when he couldn't access our credit card information on line. After numerous tries, he went the old-fashioned route: he telephoned the credit card company. Yes, not only did we have numerous charges on our account which we did not make, but all of our personal information had been compromised as well: password, telephone number, email, address. Even his mother's maiden name had been changed. The only way the woman on the line could determine if it were indeed my husband to whom she was talking was to ask him one question: To which bank was your last payment made? Because he answered that question correctly, she was able to not only cover every false charge and restore what was lost, but also re-establish our identity and bring us back into a positive credit standing.

Truth is there is only one question we have to answer correctly: To which bank was your last payment made? Praise God, the bank was at Calvary and the payment was the blood. And when we accept this costly transaction, every false charge is erased, all that is lost is restored, all our debits are turned to credits, our identity is restored and we are brought into right standing.

It might be old-fashioned, but it's still just as relevant today as it was the day the payment was made.

So what's the name of your bank?

Just an ordinary moment...
