PRISON BREAK

Have you ever driven past the old Joliet Prison and wondered what it was like to be on the inside of those massive stone walls? I recently learned that the walls were actually built by the first inmates, who dug the limestone chunks out of a nearby quarry. It seems so ironic that men would toil away to build their own prison, working hard to form what would ultimately become a barrier between themselves and everything they may have really wanted.

Then I thought about how much that is like our own lives. The Bible says that our sin separates us from God. He is absolutely pure, and our sin is like a huge wall between us and Him. It keeps us from a relationship with Him now and makes it impossible for Him to take us to heaven when we die.

The great news is that God doesn’t want us to stay in our sin-prison in this life, or to be condemned to everlasting punishment in the next. He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to come to earth in order to serve our sentence. On the cross, God punished Jesus for all our sins. He gives a complete pardon to everyone who acknowledges their own guilt and trusts Christ as their Savior. It’s really better than a prison break, because if God wipes your record clean you are saved forever.

The Bible says, “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” (1 Timothy 1:15).

Fuga de la Cárcel

¿Cómo habrá sido la sensación de estar encerrado, rodeado por esas enormes piedras de la vieja Joliet Prison? No solo eso, sino que se cuenta que fueron los primeros presos quienes extrajeron esos grandes bloques de caliza de una cantera cercana y construyeron los gruesos muros que serían su propia prisión. Parece irónico que aquellos  hombres se fatigaron para hacer lo que sería a la postre la barrera entre ellos y la libertad que anhelaban disfrutar.

Al mismo tiempo, me doy cuenta de que aquella experiencia es semejante a nuestras propias vidas. La suya, la mía. La Biblia declara que el pecado nos separa de Dios. Él es absolutamente puro y el pecado nuestro es como una barrera insalvable entre nosotros y el que nos creó y nos ama.  Nos impide relacionarnos con Él y hace imposible que nos reciba en el cielo cuando pasamos de esta vida – porque usted y yo sabemos que sí o sí nos vamos de esta tierra.

La gran noticia es que Dios no quiere que nos quedemos en esta cárcel espiritual que ha causado nuestro pecado. Tampoco quiere que seamos condenados al castigo eterno una vez que salgamos de nuestra terrenal morada. Él envió a este mundo a su Hijo, el Señor Jesucristo, para recibir la sentencia nuestra.

Como solución única, en la cruz del Calvario Dios cargó en Jesús todos nuestros pecados. Él ofrece un perdón definitivo a todo aquel que reconoce su propia culpa y confía sinceramente en Cristo como su personal y suficiente Salvador.

La Biblia dice: Cristo Jesús vino al mundo para salvar a los pecadores.
