The term “Death Row”, it’s used to describe the stage of the person waiting to be executed. After being judged, and proved to be guilty of their crimes, the death sentence is pronounced, and the person waits in the “Death Row” until all appeals and habeas corpus procedures have failed and been unsuccessful, then comes execution usually by lethal injection.
We were on the “Death Row”, condemned by our sins and transgressions, until our Lord Jesus saved us canceling everything that was against us, saving us from death.
Give a glance to the following verse:
Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
“You were spiritually dead because of your sins and because you were not free from the power of your sinful self. But God gave you new life together with Christ. He forgave all our sins. Because we broke God’s laws, we owed a debt—a debt that listed all the rules we failed to follow. But God forgave us of that debt. He took it away and nailed it to the cross.”
One day I was in the “Death Row” and I accepted the gift of life for He died for me!. I repented and got baptized in the waters. My name is now written in the book of life.
What about you? Are you still in “Death Row”? If you haven’t repented and accepted the gift of salvation, then YOU ARE ON DEATH ROW!..
Nahhh, you may say… Yeahhh, the prof of your sins and iniquities are written in the books on heavens. Your sins may be hidden in the eyes of men, however nothing is hidden at the eyes of God.
But do you know what? There’s good news for you!..Whilst you are alive there’s a chance.
But until when? How many more time have you got left?
GET OUT NOW FROM THE “DEATH ROW”!…Jesus is stretching his hand to you, offering you life, to redeem you.
Are you going to reject?
If you accept Him, take a step of faith. Right now where you are, make a prayer asking God to forgive you. Ask God to save you and that your name should be written in the book of life. On the first opportunity that you have, go the UCKG Help Centre and get baptised.
