I was checking in at the airport to go on a mission trip.
When I approached the baggage counter, the clerk asked,
"Sir, has anyone placed anything inside your luggage
without your knowledge?"
I smiled and said, "That's a trick question.
You only ask that so you can search my luggage."
He asked, "Why do you say that?"
I said, "Well, if anyone put something in my baggage
without my knowledge, I wouldn't KNOW about it.
So, obviously, my only HONEST answer has to be
'I don't know.'"
He said, "Hmm..never looked at it that way.
I need to search your luggage."
Uh-huh – KNEW that wuz gonna happen! Smile
If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not
had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Mankind is so deeply depraved, that without God's revelation,
we live in the darkness of sin without even knowing it.
We compare ourselves with others, and excuse
Morality and decency become only relative matters.
But Jesus came into the world!
He Who is "the Light of the world" (John 8:12)
penetrated our darkness!
His presence IN the world ELEVATED morality!
Now, we have no "cloke" to cover up our sin!
Jesus is the standard of what man SHOULD be!
NONE of us measure up!
With His advent, Jesus EXPOSED the REAL sin!
The real sin is REJECTION of Jesus as God and Savior!
It is the rejection of God's Holy Spirit witness
that Jesus is Lord and Savior
THAT is the "sin unto death."
There is a REAL ANSWER to man's depravity!
AND, there is MORE GOOD NEWS!!
ANYONE can become an adopted child of God by
surrendering to Jesus as LORD!
Don't try to hide sin by wrapping self in a coat of
Jesus DESTROYED that "cloke!"
Have you RECEIVED Jesus as both God and Savior?
