Remember To Keep My Shirt Clean

Thursday 14th February 2019 Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- John 14:1-6

Topic:- Remember To Keep My Shirt Clean

Text:- John 3:16

Two guys were drinking in a bar. As they were drinking, they started arguing, one guy pounced on his friend and started beating him up.
After a long beating, he realised that his friend was no longer breathing, he had already died instantly. Then the guy started running away with his shirt covered in blood. Those who were watching the fight started chasing after him.
He ran to the house of a Christian man, knocked and said, “Can you please hide me? I have killed a person and people are chasing after me.”
The Christian man replied, “But where am I going to hide you in my one room apartment?” The muderer replied, “There is no time to waste here; just think of anywhere you can hide me.”
After some time of thinking, the Christian man said to the murderer, “Give me your shirt and take my shirt, but remember to keep my shirt clean!”
They exchanged their shirts. Then as soon as the Christian man opened the door, people started beating him and he was badly injured such that he was taken to the police station.
From the police station, the case was taken to Court and the man was found guilty of murder. He was sentenced to death.

The real murderer was safe at home but was feeling so guilty that he ran to the Court and said, “Can you please release that innocent man? I am the real murderer!” The Judge replied, “Unfortunately it’s too late. You see the man has already been hanged.
The real murderer ran to the police grounds where the man was hanged and for sure he found him dead, hanging. He knelt down and cried his eyes out and said to himself, “You paid for my crime!”He remembered the Christian man’s last words to him, “KEEP MY SHIRT CLEAN!!!” That’s how the real murderer repented and became a Christian!
Moral of the story: This is exactly what Jesus did for us. He died for the crimes which he did not commit on the cross of Calvary.
Jesus Christ:
Was arrested for you…
Was whipped for you…
Was spat on for you…
Was slain for you..
Was humiliated for you…
Was nailed to the cross for you…
Died for you..
But was resurrected by the Holy Spirit of God!

Prayer Points:-
1. Oh Lord God, let Your love dwell in me richly, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. I refuse to die prematurely and untimely, oh Lord God, help me to fulfill my days on earth in you, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord God, reign in my life henceforth by fire, and to be like You, in the name of Jesus Christ.

❤Happy Valentine!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
