She stood before the court and the jurors as deliberations on the case had come to an end. The verdict was here and it wasn’t long afterwards that the statement read: Guilty.
This woman had committed a crime. It was an unlawful act, out of the bounds of the law of the land and country. Now she was held to the weight of the letter of the law. Such sentence requires her life. She is certainly guilty and all of the evidence surrounding her verdict proves this.
Now depressed and even dismayed, she hangs her head down in guilt. Tears begin to stream down her cheeks as she whispers- “Help me.”
Then in a sudden turn of events, the judge, leaves his stand, temporarily steps down from his post, goes before the prosecutor and says,
“I will take her place.”
How could the judge take this criminals place. How could he leave his high-ranking to serve someone not worthy of such service. Yet He did. And for this we are eternally grateful.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
If you need His help, His hand or His love- know that He is just a prayer away.
See Hebrews 13:5, Matthew 11:28-29
