All hell broke loose against Christ, but He did not sin.

There is this parable. A priest once told a story about a dream he had. In his dream he got into the hell’s waiting room. In the hallway, all along the walls, there were some sort of clocks ticking at different speeds.

“These clocks are ‘sin counters,’” the secretary explained. “Every time a person sins, the hand runs faster.”

“And whose clock is this? This one seems to go faster than the others,” the priest asked.

“This one is one of your church ministers’. He is having a conversation with a construction crew this very moment. The Sunday school repair schedule has been disrupted, and he’s just furious about it!”

“What about this clock? It ticks a bit slower, whose is it?”

“This one is your youth pastor’s. He chats with his friends in Facebook during working hours.”

“And what about this clock. It looks very slow. Whose is this one?”

“This one is your music pastor’s, he is busy right now planning the next worship service.”

“And where’s my clock?” the priest finally gathered enough courage to ask the question that worried him the most.

“Ain’t here,” replied the secretary.

“How is that?” the pastor was genuinely surprised.

“We use your clock as a fan in one of the fire pits.”

QUESTION: If this parable were true, what do you think Jesus’ clock would show?

Jesus simply wouldn’t have such a clock! The Bible says,

“God made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that God’s righteousness would be produced in us” (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Jesus had no knowledge of sin. Of course, He is aware of sin, but He never had any personal experience of it in His life. All his childhood He spent in complete obedience to His parents and His heavenly Father. For the thirty three years of Christ’s life here on earth Hell was trying to derail Him from the righteous path, but Satan completely failed. Jesus Christ never sinned in anything, not once! At the end of His life hanging on the cross, Jesus offered to God a blameless and pure sacrifice for our sins. This was the very sacrifice God’s holiness required, and this was the very sacrifice the whole mankind needed! And today by the purity of Christ anyone who believes in Him can be purified of their sins.

PRAYER: Worship God meditating on His sinlessness and His holiness. Thank Christ for becoming the pure sacrifice for our sins.
