There was a little girl name Liz who suffered with a rare and serious disease. Her only chance of recovery was to have a blood transfusion from a relative, who had the same blood type.
After testing the entire family, her 5-year old brother appeared to be the only good match. It seemed he had survived the same disease and had developed the necessary antibodies needed to combat the illness.
The doctor explained the situation to the little boy and asked him if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. For a split-second the boy hesitated and then, taking a deep breath said, "Yes I will do it, if it will save her life..."
The day of the transfusion came and the little boy lay in the bed next to his sister. He smiled with his family as they saw color returning to his sisters face. Just then, his face grew pale and his smile faded.
He looked up at the doctor and with a trembling voice he asked, "Will I start to die right away?" Being so young, the little boy misunderstood the doctor; he thought he was going to have to give his sister, all of his blood in order to save her.
This was such a brave little guy and it was his love for his sister that made his own view of death worth it all. We can understand someone, who is willing to die for a person they love or a person they think is worth dying for. But, who is willing to die for the detestable? Who is willing to give their all for someone who couldn't care less?
God's love was poured out for us by offering his only Son to atone for our sins, while we were of no use to Him whatsoever. Christ Jesus didn't wait for us to be "ready" to accept what He would do. He offered Himself for this sacrificial death when we were weak, rebellious and indifferent! He was willing to transfuse His blood on the cross, into our sin sick lives, so that we could have an abundant and bountiful life!! But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
Friend, you may never have heard the gospel (the good news) of Jesus Christ. Or maybe you have heard it and you don't feel like it applies to you. It may even be as simple as you just don't care. I would just tell you, that Jesus knows, He understands, He loves you and He was willing to die, knowing this is how you would respond.
We all have free will and we all can choose whether we will accept or reject Jesus Christ as our Savior. But, just so you know, we can't have it both ways! We will either choose to repent and turn from our sins or we will choose to die in our sins if we continue in them.
Yes, if you choose to love your sins, you will die in them. For the wages of sin is death; Romans 6:23 That's the bad news! However, if you choose Jesus He will forgive; If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 Now, that's good news!
So you have a choice to make. Will you choose Jesus or your Sin?
