Escaping the Death Penalty (GLMX #VA4)

Download MP3 Subscribe to this Podcast

Several events in recent months in the United States have raised the question of whether or not the death penalty should continue to be allowed as a form of punishment in America. Some states have said that it is becoming more difficult to obtain the drugs used in lethal injection. In Arizona, Oklahoma, and Ohio, there have been ‘botched’ executions — where the person sentenced to die was not killed in short order according to procedure. These cases garnered a lot of media attention and renewed calls for the death penalty to be abolished. There have also been cases where a person on death row has been found innocent of the crime they were put there for. In fact, a recent study determined that at least 4 percent of all people sentenced to death are actually innocent.

Currently, there are over 3,000 people on death row in the United States. Can you imagine what it is like sitting on death row? Waking up every day in a cell knowing that each minute that passes puts you closer to the time when your life will be terminated by a lethal injection or an electric shock? Can you imagine living every day with a countdown ticking in your mind?

You might shudder at the thought of that kind of existence. However, every person born into this world is sentenced to die. We are all under a death penalty. The Bible says in Hebrews 9:27, “It is appointed unto men once to die.” Whether you want to accept it or not, your life — and the life of every person alive — is slowly winding down to a point of termination.

Unfortunately, in our world, we often hear of times when people are mistreated, left out, and discriminated against. Blacks in America were treated as inferior during the Jim Crow Era in the South. Japanese-Americans were demonized and mistreated during World War II. Black Africans suffered under apartheid laws for many years in South Africa. Native Americans were enslaved and treated as inferior by the Spanish who came to the new world. And who can forget how horrifically the Jews were treated by the Nazis?

Even though these major issues have been resolved for the most part, people are still left out and discriminated against today. School children are often bullied because of how they look. People are rejected and overlooked because they weren’t born on the right side of the tracks. Companies are often sued because of racism, sexism or ageism.

Unfortunately, our world is oftentimes not a very inclusive place. But did you know that there is a place where everybody is welcome. This place is called Heaven. In Luke 14, Jesus Christ told a story that is an illustration of God’s invitation to heaven. Once everything for a great feast was ready, the Master of the banquet told his servants, “Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.”

Jesus Christ wants everyone to come in to Heaven. Jesus does not leave out those who are poor, or sick, or addicted to drugs. Jesus does not leave out those who were born into poverty, or those of a certain race, culture, or economic status. Jesus Christ invites everybody to go to Heaven.

Do you want to accept Jesus’ invitation to go to Heaven? It will only take a minute to make this important decision. If you want to do this right now, allow me to show you how you can accept Jesus’ invitation to go to Heaven.

Soul singer, Curtis Mayfield, wrote a popular song titled “People Get Ready.” It was first recorded by the Impressions in 1965 and has since been named by Rolling Stone magazine as the 24th greatest song of all time, by Britain’s Mojo magazine as one of the ten best songs of all time, and it was included in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. It has influenced a wide range of singers such as Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Michelle Wright, Bruce Springsteen, and John Mayer.
