And now 1 want to ask you what
you would think of Barabbas today
had he done any less than I have
imagined for him? Through what
Jesus did in taking his place, all that
the law had against him was wiped
out. Not one of you but will say that
he ought to have used the life that
was given back to him in doing all
the good he could. That's what,you
say, every one of you, I know it, but
listen to me what Jesus did for Ba
rabbas He has done for you and me.
He took our place under the law
and died in our stead. "He was
wounded for our transgressions and
was bruised for our iniquities; the
chastisement of our peace was upon
Him; and with His stripes we are
healed." Nothing could save us from
the wrath of God and eternal death
but the sacrifice of Jesus, and know
ing this He freely poured out His
blood for us, and now what kind of
men are we if we will not undertake
to live for Him? I want you to see
in Him today your substitute your
sacrifice your fulfillment of God's
law. I want you to see in Him every
thing in the way of righteousness
that God expects of you. Are you
willing to accept Him today for all
that God wants Him to be for you?

Provides a goodly theme.
