At an old country school there were several reports of students stealing. The teacher decided to try to put an end to it - so one morning he told the class this, "Any student caught lying, stealing, or cheating will receive forty stripes." This seemed to solve the problem since no stealing was reported. But then, one day, a student said that an apple had been stolen from his lunch bag. A search was made and in little Jimmy's desk the apple was found. The teacher called the little boy to the front of the schoolroom and asked.him why he had taken theapple. take off your shirt." About that time a big, husky boy named Tommy Rose from his seat in the back of the room came walking up the aisle, taking off his shirt and said, "Teacher, I know the rules that someone must take forty stripes for stealing but I'm stepping in to take Jimmy's punishment for him." This story takes me back to the time when the world owed a debt that it could not pay - a sin debt. So Jesus Christ came into this world - paid a debt that he did not owe and took our stripes with his. blood on Calvary. And some two thousand years later he is stillstanding at the door knocking and saying, "If any Jimmy replied, "Teacher, I was man will open the door, 1 will hungry - my family is very poor come in and sup with him and he and I haven't had anything to eat can sup with me." I'm sure little since yesterday morning." The teacher said, "Jimmy, you don't know how much this hurts me to do this; but. rules are rules and I must give you forty stripes so Jimmy loved Tommy more than anyone at that school. Therefore, we should love Christ more than anything in this world because He took our stripes at Calvary.
