FAITH

Have you ever been…?

Have you ever been guilty? Proven wrong without reasonable doubt?

Have you ever been a criminal? A thief or a prostitute?

Have you ever been a liar? A sinner?

I am.

And there was no way out. I did it. I was wrong. I have to be punished.

What was I to do? Plead my case? Run away?

Nothing.

Have you ever been wronged? Lied to?

Have you ever been the victim? Innocent and righteous?

Have you ever been a forgiver? A reconciler?

Jesus is.

And there were choices. He chose us. He was perfect. He wants to save me.

What was he to do? Leave me? Let it be?

No.

While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Yes. For me and you.

What do we have to do? Ignore? Forget?

No. Accept His gift and live free.

Yes. It’s possible to be forgiven and to forgive.

All because of Jesus.
