And all the people answered, “His blood be on us and on our children!” (Matthew 27:25 ESV)
If you read Matthew chapters 26-28 you will get to know more about the death and the resurrection of Christ. Today what I want to point out is that we all are guilty of murder, whether we choose to accept it or not. However, it is through that murder that some of us have been saved. Our forefathers who were present at Christ’s judgement before Pilate said may His blood be on us and our children, thus making us guilty of His murder.
Another evidence of us being guilty is our sins. If not for the sin of man Jesus wouldn’t have died on the cross for our us. Therefore we caused His murder: “Our sins led the lamb to the slaughter” – Isaiah 53:7
The one that we murdered made us right before God despite our long history of rebellion against God after the fall of Man (Genesis 3). In an earthly court, being found guilty of murder would have resulted in serious punishment. We would have faced the full wrath of earthly law.
But in the case of Christ’s murder it was judged differently under the heaven rule. Instead of us being punished severely for being found guilty of His son murder, we were rather made guiltless before God who is the judge. Under God’s rule, his death has liberated us from sin and from facing the full wrath of God unlike the earthly court where we would have been punished severely.
So far as we admit we are guilty of all our sins, repent and accept Christ in our lives we will be delivered: “He who was delivered over because of our transgressions, and was raised because of our justification. (Romans 4:25 NASB)”. Under the human rule of law, admitting you are guilty does not pardon judgement even if you are repentant of your crime. It’s only under God’s rule of law repentance from our sins and faith in Christ Jesus leads to salvation. His death became a blessing to us and good news for us.
Brethren, all of us will be judged before God, both the dead and living will be judged according to our deeds – 2 Corinthians 5:10.
Will you be found guilty or guiltless?
If you haven’t accept Christ in your life please do by repenting and believing in Christ Jesus before it is too late, mercy is only available whiles you are awake. Choose God choose life!
