The King's Law

There was a king who issued a decree that if anyone who will violate the law, he or she must be put to death through public execution of scourging with a huge metal ball with sharp spikes on it. Everyone in the kingdom has been very careful of not violating the law until such time that there is someone who did. 


An old lady, around 60 years old, was caught by the king's official and was reported to him. The king now has approved the execution no matter what the age of the violator. So, then the officials prepared the execution chamber the next day at the center of the kingdom for all the people to witness the event. 

The 60 year old lady came with her face veiled with a cloth until she went up the stage of the execution chamber. She was already tied up. The metal ball with spikes are ready, sharpened by the king's official. When the veil was lifted up from the lady's face, everybody found out that it is the king's mother. Everyone on the crowd, the officials, and even the king was shocked. He does not know what to do now. 

The kingdom questioned, "What is he going to do?", referring to the king. When the officials are almost ready to hit the king's mother, the king shouted, "Stop!", went down from his throne to the execution chamber, took away his crown, and tied himself up to the chamber. Because he cannot violate his own decree, he commanded the officials to let his mother go and let her live and have him scourged in place of his mother and endure the punishment and die.

This is what happened on the cross of Jesus. 
Jesus is the king, we are the mother!
We are destined to die because of our sins. 
Jesus put himself in place of us so we can have life.
And it is all because of His GREAT LOVE for you and me. 


Amazing GOD!!

  11. To comment last would not mean something. Anyway, I find this post nice. This post actually calls a responsive action. My view: to die is a lent of sacrifice but to sin is a mere result of unjustifiable violation. Hopes to take actions that are relevant to pure sin-consolation.
